Thinking about a travel assignment in Nevada? Most of Nevada is made up of a desert and sees an average of only seven inches of rain every year. Most of the state is in the Great Basin, and even the Mojave Desert covers some of southern Nevada. But all that dry landscape is part of what makes Nevada so cool. From rock climbing to zip lining and camping out under a sea of more stars than you’ll find at a planetarium, the desert is one non-stop adventure.
Don’t worry, if you’re looking for a cooler climate, there’s always the slopes. Did you know that the name Nevada means “snow-covered?” Seems funny since it’s so dry, but it’s not named ironically. Climb up to the higher Nevada altitudes to find mountain peaks and ski resorts which are filled with just as much fun as the desert, if not more, with events, musical festivals, skiing and more throughout the year.
Beer lovers, rejoice. It’s easy to drink local in Nevada with its 21 breweries across the state. You can enjoy beer festivals throughout the year, especially in places like Vegas and Reno. Or travel just south of Carson City to drink at Genoa Bar and Saloon, Nevada’s “oldest thirst parlor” in the state’s original settlement.
