Only In Nevada

Untamed, unspoiled, and gloriously rough around the edges. Welcome to your next adventure.

Nevada is a lot of things at the same time. Neon-buzzing boulevards and wide-open roads. Spectacular stage shows and star-studded skies. The most right-now art and million-year-old rock formations. Glitz. Glam. Grit. And endless surprises. The point is, whether you’re in the mood to swank it up at the planet’s best resorts, seek solitude at some of the nation’s most secluded and breathtaking parks, or simply let the road lead you to your life’s most exciting, unpredicted, and unwritten next chapters, your heart and mind are in the exact right state: the Silver State. In other words: Welcome to Nevada.

Highlights
  • 600+ Ghost Towns—More Than “Live” Ones
  • Basque Dinner Houses and Sagebrush Saloons
  • Oddball Attractions and Far-Out Art

Topa! Basque-ing in Nevada Culture

Hailing from a mountainous, New Jersey-sized region straddling France and Spain, the Basque people came first for the gold and then later for the sheepherding. Those who stayed in Nevada held onto their culture and that spirit remains vibrant throughout Nevada today.

Seasons in Nevada

Nevada is a land of extremes. And the weather is no exception. The peak-studded, high-desert north is known for warm days and sharply cooling nights. Meanwhile, the arid, low-desert south temperatures can teeter into triple-digit territory on the reg. And, believe it or not, it can rain or snow literally any time. Anywhere. That’s why the real pros roll with a down jacket over their bikini and pack both flip-flops and boots. So let us walk you through how to navigate the weather around here. One season at a time.

Early mornings with @travelnevada & @discovery on Pyramid Lake.

Looking forward to returning to the Black Rock Desert for some quality glamping in the middle of absolutely nowhere. Hoping to return with many photos of starry and stormy skies.⁣

Paintbrush and Lupine blooming with our camp behind it in the aspens. It was a cold and wet week up there but nothing beats camping and relaxing with friends.
