While Nevada’s most famous destination, Las Vegas, has something for everyone, the Silver State is filled with exciting and diverse opportunities making it unique among the 50 states, and the world. Nevada offers stimulating adventure in the great outdoors and round-the-clock entertainment in cities that never sleep. No matter where you go, you’re surrounded by mountains and there’s always a good meal and entertainment, day or night.
Nevada is the seventh largest US state and the most mountainous with at least 314 mountain ranges and peaks, many of which are snow-capped half the year. About 87% of Nevada’s 70.2 million acres is managed by the federal government and much of it is available for public recreation.
Outdoor adventure activities range from the more vigorous kayaking, mountain biking, parasailing and rock climbing to snowmobiling, whitewater rafting, horseback riding and hiking to less strenuous fun such as camping, fishing, birding and watching wild horses gallop across the sagebrush-studded hills. Golf is a favourite outdoor activity throughout Nevada and there are more than 100 courses styled to fit all tastes, budgets and playing abilities from champion to municipal and exclusive to rustic.
