Things to Do in Nevada

Where else in the world can you find such a range of indoor and outdoor activities to keep you busy throughout the year as with things to do in Nevada? The first thing that comes to mind for visitors is the famous gambling environment of the Silver State. Accompanying the gaming industry are many other Nevada activities. These include all the amenities that one finds at the casino resorts such as live entertainment, pools and spas, fine dining and more. Galleries, libraries and museums can be found in close proximity to many of the resorts, but these attractions can also be located in many of the more rural areas throughout the state as well. For the more active among us, things to do in Nevada include fun in the air and on the water and land. There is ballooning, gliding, soaring and flying in the clear skies of the Silver State. The lakes and rivers offer opportunities for boating, sailing, paddleboarding, swimming, diving and fishing. Millions of acres of public lands in Nevada provide opportunities for hiking, biking, climbing, hunting and camping. Other outdoor pursuits include incredible golf courses and ski areas. Another thing to do in Nevada is simply to travel the state and enjoy the sights, from the Ruby Mountains to Lake Tahoe and from Hoover Dam to the Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park.
