Welcome to Nevada

Nevada is a classic western state located mostly in the thinly-populated desert and semi-arid Great Basin region. Nevada gained importance for silver mines and other mineral wealth, then became a major tourist destination when the state legalized gambling in 1931. The world-renowned casino resort city of Las Vegas basks in the desert heat of Southeastern Nevada. Straddling the border with California to the west, Lake Tahoe, North America’s largest alpine lake, entices visitors with lakeside casino hotels, winter skiing, and summer outdoor recreation. Historic mining towns like Carson City and Virginia City, ghost towns, rustic hot springs resorts, and pristine wilderness lands are also prime Nevada attractions.
