Think Nevada - think endless desert and glittering casinos
Nevada is full of fascinating oddities. Take the Stratosphere Tower at the Stratosphere casino in Vegas, the tallest free-standing observation tower and roller coaster in the USA. Or Lake Tahoe, the biggest alpine lake in North America and the US' second deepest. The state boasts almost half of America’s wild horses and donkeys, has more hot springs than any other state and is the driest state in the nation with just 7 inches of rain a year.
It would take 288 years for one person to spend a night in every Las Vegas hotel room.
Some of the most extraordinary natural and man made structures await you in Nevada: the Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, Mount Charlston, Lake Tahoe, Fly Geyser, Lake Mead and more.
