Around Nevada

Nevada gets its name from the Sierra Nevada.

States neighbouring Nevada are: California, Oregon, Idaho, Utah and Arizona.

The gambling centres of Reno and Las Vegas is what attracts most visitors to Nevada; even the Greyhound from San Francisco to Salt Lake City and Denver stops at Reno for enough time to let you play the slots; if you're over 21.

Apart from the distractions of the casinos and neon in Las Vegas and Reno, there are also some scenic attractions in Nevada.

Lake Mead:
Hoover Dam straddles Nevada and Arizona. The colossus concrete structure holds back the Colorado River, and creates a man-made lake.

A number of historical sites also survive in Nevada: An 1868 mansion in Virginia City is known as the Castle; the Mormon Station Historic State Monument is in Genoa; and you can visit Fort Churchill Historic State Monument in Yerington.
