Leisure Activities

Simply put: from shop-’til-you-drop to rooftop pool-hop, nobody’s got the life of leisure figured out better than Nevada. Whether you’re bent on loading duffels with scores from the best shopping in Las Vegas high-end emporiums, vintage-ing up your wardrobe with funky boutique shopping in Reno, or hunting one-of-a-kind treasures in old-school antique shops, Nevada will have you roused to browse. From Neiman Marcus, Jimmy Choo, and Premium Outlets to local designers, retro repositories, and entire antique shopping malls, there’s something for everyone’s extra checked back in every Nevada locale.

Looking for a more leisurely visit? Look no further. From luxurious getaways to premier pampering packages, Nevada is the place to reward yourself with a little (or a lotta) good ol’ rest and relaxation. Splurge on a Forbes-rated experience at the best resort spas in Nevada (and the country), treat your whole self to a rejuvenating dip into restorative mineral waters at a schmancy natural hot springs resort, or take in those warm rays (and maybe a few exquisite cocktails) by the pool or lake. It’s all here.

Nevada just might have some of the best sunsets I’ve seen in quite a while. Still day dreaming of this one I witnessed along Highway 50, “the Loneliest Road in America” back in May. 😍

Happy tongue 👅
It's time to apply for tickets to tour this gorgeous freak. Fly Geyser, not far from the putty-colored playa known as Black Rock Desert, is a technicolor blend of iron (red), sulfate (yellow), and algae (yup, the green crud) on private property in northern Nevada. It was born in 1964 when the drill from a geothermal company accidentally exposed it. After 55 years, it's getting a little taller and a touch lovelier by the year. Details and ticket info at blackrockdesert.org/fly-geyser

✨📦 It’s been a while since i’ve felt excited about shooting again. This time I’m trying to teach myself how to shoot better climbing photos and it feels all shiny and new to pick up my camera. ✨✨✨
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 
Do you have any fun photo projects on the horizon or new things you’re trying with photography?

Also if you shoot climbing photos, would love any tips! 🙏🏻 Crashpad #gifted by metoliusclimbing
Volcanoes, earthquakes, water and erosion created the spires and buff colored cliffs of Cathedral Gorge. The variation in layers of rock and sediment tell the story of fluctuating lake levels and the flow of rivers and streams that deposited slit and ash into the lake.

Come train or shine ⁣
All aboard the hot mess express, let’s hike this railroad trail near Las Vegas 🚂🛤️🥾⁣
[SAVE this post for later!]⁣
Trail name: Historic Railroad Tunnel Trail⁣
Location: Boulder City, Nevada⁣
Distance: 8.2 miles out-and-back (or as far as you want to go)⁣
Difficulty: Easy⁣
Includes: ⁣
- 5 railroad tunnels, roughly 300 ft by 25 ft in diameter ⁣
- Panoramic views of Lake Mead, Boulder Basin, and Hoover Dam, with the South Virgin Mountains rising up in the distance ⁣
Fun fact: After the Hoover Dam was completed in 1935, the railroad ceased operation. In 1962 the tracks were removed, and the trail opened in 1995. ⁣
The best place to begin your trek is the Lake Mead National Recreation Area Alan Bible Visitor Center trailhead. This is also a shared trailhead for the River Mountains Loop Trail.⁣
👉🏼 Tag a friend you’d do this railroad trail with!⁣
⚠️ Help preserve nature’s beauty by packing out all trash (even food scraps), never carve or graffitii on rocks, and stay on designated trails. Visit lnt.org for more info.⁣

Planning trips in late Feb/early March are tricky. We had to adjust plans a few times due to weather and permits. Landed on a 12 mile paddle through the Black Canyon, down the Colorado River...making stops along the way to explore and soak in 4 different hot springs, then camped on the beach with an impressive fire, post an under the stars soak adventure. Not sure how I’m going to go back to a life that doesn’t include a daily nature soak 🤷🏻‍♀️ becky.schreiber wins the trip saver award for coming up with plan F that was an A+ adventure and thankful for kkurc for doing all the hard work of steering the canoe 🛶
Nothing to see here...just a little munchin' and brunchin' in Valley of Fire 🔥🔥🔥
