Time to Meet the Neighbor

Winter Road Trip Adventure to Nevada

It’s home to the Loneliest Road in America. And we guarantee you’ll come home with more stories than souvenirs when you go on a weekend road trip in Nevada! As the most mountainous region in the Lower 48, Nevada is made for people who prefer their pit stops to be peak hikes and state parks. It’s also a place where getting soaked is desirable: Nevada has more natural hot springs (300!) than any other state.

Sink in and point your toes towards the gorgeous outdoors surrounding you. Road trips are also about the people you’ll meet. Nevada locals are as open as the landscape. The cool, creative individuals here make social media posts more colorful than the sun setting at Valley of Fire State Park. As Nevada’s oldest and largest state park, it’s a hiker’s paradise, with red sandstone formations like iconic Piano Rock and 3,000-year-old petroglyphs.

Rainbow Vista is a must for panoramic splendor. In 2017, break the mold of same old same old: Go on a road trip and meet the interesting neighbor—Nevada!
