Nevada: More Than Gambling
Part of the appeal of Nevada is its less than perfect reputation. Las Vegas and legalized gambling is what has made Las Vegas and Nevada known worldwide. However, there is much more that visitors can do in Nevada aside from gamble. Some popular cities include Mesquite, Boulder City, Carson City and Laughlin with a number of recreational activities and excellent accommodations. If visitors are looking for a historic vacation then there are many options in North Nevada. In Southern Nevada there is also the option of visiting one of the many ghost towns left over from the early nineteen hundred silver boom. A popular attraction in Southern Nevada is the Cave Lake State Park which has a number of recreational activities such as fishing, camping and hiking.
Las Vegas is a man made attraction that has attracted thousands of people from all across the world. Las Vegas is known for their casinos and bright neon lights. There are several Clark County communities that come together to form Las Vegas including Henderson which has the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. However, you don’t have to like gambling to come to Las Vegas, there are many other options including several natural outdoor recreational activities. One of these options is Lake Mead National Recreation Area which is near Boulder City and the Valley of Fire State Park. And then there is no shortage of clubs along the Las Vegas Strip that you can choose from to keep you busy all night long.
Despite the size of Las Vegas it isn’t the capital of Nevada. Carson City is the capital of Nevada and is located near Reno and Lake Tahoe. Many choose to come to Carson City as a result of its close proximity to outdoor activities including many skiing and snowboarding sites in the winter. Although, like most large cities in Nevada you can still find some casinos if you want to do a little gambling while you are there.
There is no shortage of accommodation in Nevada and many of them are the hippest hotels you will find in the entire United States. Many of these hotels come with excellent service and amenities so the only hard trouble is figuring out which one you want to stay at. However, if you are looking for something a little different than the standard Las Vegas hotels you should consider the Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa. This hotel isn’t located along the strip, instead most rooms overlook the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation and the architecture and design is built to look like the natural wonder that it overlooks. So this makes it an excellent option for those who want outdoors in their Las Vegas vacation.
