Despite the name meaning “snow-covered,” Nevada is the driest state in the United States. Visitors generally come to play amid opulent casinos since gambling is legal. It is home to the Hoover Damn which is the second largest public works project in US history, as well, the CIA’s Area 51 which was started in 1955 to test covert military operations. You can find some of the best live entertainment in the country, along with, the largest concentration of Ichthyosaur fossils in the world at Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park. Nevada is full of personality with a varied history and culture all of its own. Whether you play indoors or out, you can find a unique adventure for adults and families alike amongst this desert landscape.
