Nevada’s amazing landscapes feature incredible natural diversity, scenic drives, national parks with outstanding terrain, and even ski hills in the high mountains. While casinos are synonymous with Nevada, don’t forget about the wide spaces, historic towns, arts and top-notch restaurants or, if you’re into motoring, the spectacular scenery, at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, as these are some of the best things to do. You are very lucky if you live in Nevada, as its beauty goes far beyond the Vegas lights, so plan a road trip for this weekend and check one of this places you probably don’t know about, for some well-deserved relaxation.
Nestled between California and Utah, it is nicknamed the Sagebrush State and has a lot to offer, such as epic scenery worth exploring and historic landmarks, so here is an overview of Nevada’s top attractions.
- Visit Las Vegas
If you’re spending time in Nevada, you’ll surely go to the Entertainment Capital of the World, with its enormous casino hotels, endless gambling and big-name shows every night. Draped with a canopy of LED lights, known as the Fremont Street Experience, it is something worth seeing, but Las Vegas is also an undeniable shopping capital, perfect for souvenir shopping. Considered the most entertainment filled place, the Las Vegas Strip, running from the Mandalay Bay Hotel to the Treasure Island Hotel, is where the huge resorts are located, as well as one of the brightest spots on earth when seen from space. If you don’t have a companion it’s an excellent idea to ask an escort to come with you, as one can offer you even more than sexual pleasure in Las Vegas. Be aware that there are plenty escort agencies all around Nevada, and this is a great option if you want someone to keep you company. Take it into consideration, because finding one in Vegas will surely be a piece of cake, but be careful to choose right.
- Check the neon signs from Las Vegas’ past
There is a three-acre plot which has become a veritable graveyard of over 150 decommissioned neon signs, notable pieces of Vegas history, such as Binion’s Horseshoe or the Golden Nugget. The neon-lit night sky is one of the most iconic sights, a peculiar mix of the burlesque and retro-modern, and many of the most recognizable ones have been produced by Young Electric Sign Company.
Nearly 1,000 ft above the Las Vegas Valley, Ascaya has 300 homes within one square mile, but you probably can’t afford the land, so start by making friends and checking out the rugged terrain and one-of-a-kind view.
- Lake Tahoe
Straddling the state line between California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe is the largest Alpine Lake in America, so if you’re after the best views, ride the Heavenly Gondola or boats like the Tahoe Queen that offer magnificent views of the surrounding scenery.
- Hoover Dam
Hoover Dam is a modern civil engineering wonder, open 363 days a year for tours which include media presentations and commentary by guides.
