While its poster child may be ‘Entertainment Capital of the World’ Las Vegas, Nevada offers a whole lot more than glitzy casinos – from famous mountain resorts to a rich Old West heritage, this is a diverse state with a dynamic history. In place of the pioneers, missionaries and prospectors who once visited are round-the-clock party people, high rollers, outdoor adventurers and conspiracy theorists, all looking to experience the very best of the Silver State.

It's hard to ignore the sheer excess and extravagance of Nevada's most famous city. Sitting in the Mojave Desert near to the state’s southern tip and home to approximately two-thirds of its population, Las Vegas sits at the top of many people's travel wish-list. Its glittering Strip is lined with upscale casino hotels housing lavish shops and restaurants, buzzing nightclubs, world-class performance venues and elaborate replica landmarks – in just one day here you can cruise the waterways of Venice, soar among New York's skyscrapers and head to the top of the Eiffel Tower. To view an original spectacle, visit the nearby Grand Canyon, a yawning red-rock chasm located in neighbouring Arizona.
Southern Nevada isn't just about Sin City – there are a fair few natural (and man-made) wonders within just a few hours' drive. To the west is the beautiful Red Rock Canyon, while to the east you’ll find the world-famous Hoover Dam and the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, a favourite with boaters, kayakers and hikers. Just an hour north-west of Vegas is the otherworldly Valley of Fire State Park, a land of incredible wave-like sandstone rocks, petrified trees and petroglyphs. The region is also home to the highly-classified Area 51, a notoriously secretive United States Air Force base that attracts curious tourists and UFO conspiracy theorists from around the world.
After Vegas, Lake Tahoe is probably Nevada's most famous destination. Located at the eastern edge of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, this breathtaking Alpine Lake is the largest of its kind in North America. Winter sports enthusiasts head into the mountains for the deep powder and lively nightlife between late November and April, while hikers, bikers, swimmers and sun-seekers spend summer months soaking up the clear blue skies and mountain atmosphere. At the foot of the mountains sits state capital Carson City, where ‘Biggest Little City in the World’ Reno attracts high-stakes gamblers. Those seeking a taste of the authentic Wild West should head to nearby Virginia City, a former mining town that offers an unbeatable insight into 19th-century Nevada.
Travelling north and east of Reno and Carson City takes you off the beaten track and into a land of deserts, mountain ranges and ghost towns. The state's Black Rock Desert is one of the flattest places on earth, where Richard Noble set the land speed record in his supersonic car ThrustSSC. Along Interstate 80 you'll find the only National Park located entirely in Nevada – the lesser-known Great Basin National Park, where you can discover the Snake Range’s numerous 12,000-ft-plus peaks along with vast caves and ancient pine forests.
Nevada's accommodation choices range from the Vegas Strip’s world-famous hotels and Lake Tahoe’s luxury resorts to historic neon-lit casinos, Old West gambling halls and quirky inns. Sin City blends modern hotels such as the Four Seasons, Wynn and Mandarin Oriental with enduring Vegas icons like the Bellagio and the Venetian; while up in the mountains you'll find a Hyatt Regency and the waterside Edgewood Tahoe, one of the region’s finest golf and spa resorts.
The state is served by numerous international, state, regional and executive airports. Contact our team and we'll arrange everything you need to charter a private jet to Nevada.
