Unfortunately, when some people hear of Nevada the first thing that comes to their mind is either The Strip or Area 51.
For me, the places I think of are either my favorite Valley of Fire State Park or Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, as both are in my top places to explore.
Below are the major highlights of what Nevada has to offer and we will be adding links to our articles once they are developed.
Below are some of our favorite “highlights” in Nevada grouped by type of area (National, State, Point of Interest, etc.)

Other Nevada Explorations and Points of Interest
I am an outdoor enthusiast who would rather be on a backcountry backpacking trip than a stroll on the beach (although I do love the beach!).
Living in Las Vegas has afforded me the opportunity to easily explore the Southwest region of the United States.
A nature lover, I am often found at the end of the pack taking photos and videos of the wildlife found on the trails. Colorful flowers, desert animals, and unusual geological rock formations are often the majority of my photos.
