Save Nevada Tourism – A group of concerned citizens that support the tourism efforts of the State of Nevada. All work in this effort is donated and we are not associated with the Nevada Commission on Tourism or any other State or local organization. The Rural Grant Program, already cut this year in Nevada, would likely face long-term elimination under a general fund scenario.

History
Nevada became part of the United States with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo with Mexico in 1848. Nevada was organized into a territory in 1861 and then became a state in 1864. The state’s motto is Battle Born because Nevada became a state during the Civil War.

Belmont/Manhattan
Manhattan’s closer than you think. From Tonopah, take Highway 6 east, then turn north on State Route 376. Drive about 60 miles, then hang a right on State Route 377. Another dozen miles will put you right on Main Street. In Manhattan, you can sample the life of the old-time prospectors who founded the town in 1850. –

Desert National Wildlife Refuge
The Desert National Wildlife Refuge was established May 20, 1936, and encompasses 1.5 million acres of the diverse Mojave Desert in southern Nevada. It is the largest National Wildlife Refuge in the lower 48 states. Refuge staff work at the Corn Creek Field Station, located approximately 23 miles north of Las Vegas. This is the major access point to the range and can be reached by traveling north on U.S. Highway 95.

The East Ely Railroad Depot Museum focuses on the historical industrial development of Nevada as evidenced by the massive copper production in the area which began in 1900. Located in the historic Nevada Northern Railroad Depot building, the museum interprets mining and transportation heritage.
The museum is Nevada’s newest National Historic Landmark. This fifty-six acre complex consists of over 70 buildings and structures, operating steam locomotives, over 60 pieces of antique railroad equipment, thirty miles of track along with the corporate paper record of the railroad.

Fallon
Fallon is located in the Lahontan Valley, about 60 miles east of Reno, and near the Stillwater Wildlife Refuge, part of the Pacific Flyway and home to hundreds of species of migratory birds. Because of the valley’s high volume of water, the area is often called the “Oasis of Nevada,” and outdoor recreation is abundant in this lush playground.

Pyramid Lake
Just north of Reno, Nevada sits a desert lake. Named for tufa formations, Pyramid Lake is the remnant of the ancient Lake Lahontan that formed in the last Ice Age. At that time Lake Lahontan was an inland sea that covered most of the state of Nevada. Today, Pyramid Lake is part of the National Scenic Byways Program and the only byway in the country located entirely within a tribal reservation.

In 2010, First Lady Michelle Obama designated Pyramid Lake as Nevada’s first Preserve America Tribal Community

The Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribes’ Reservation is located thirty five miles northeast of Reno, Nevada in a remote desert area located in the counties of Washoe, Lyon, and Storey. The area of the reservation contains 475,000 acres or 742.2 square miles. Out of this acreage approximately 112,000 acres cover the surface of a terminal desert lake, Pyramid Lake. Pyramid Lake is one of the most valuable assets of the Tribe and is entirely enclosed within the boundaries of the Reservation. Pyramid Lake is approximately 15 miles long and 11 miles wide. At its deepest point Pyramid Lake measures 350 feet.

Tonopah
The green-energy based visitors center is located in Tonopah. Located halfway between Las Vegas and Reno on U.S. 95, the center is built of recycled materials and runs entirely on power created by solar panels and a wind generator. Inside the center, visitors learn about renewable energy through detailed displays while also watching it in action. The Tonopah Historic Mining Park on the hillside above the town, offers a chance to explore the actual mines that created this mining juggernaut. Tonopah’s Central Nevada Museum contains displays describing not only local mining history but also other cultural and social aspects of the region. Tonopah’s night skies are considered among the best in the country for stargazing.

Winnemucca,_Nevada
Winnemucca resides in Humboldt County and is the halfway point between Salt Lake City and San Francisco along Interstate 80 in Cowboy Country. The town has a rich Basque heritage. The town has been occupied since about 1830 when trappers came to the area in search of fur-bearing animals. In 1863 the town was named after Paiute Chief Winnemucca.

Valley of Fire State Park is located only six miles from Lake Mead and 55 miles northeast of Las Vegas via Interstate 15 and on exit 75. Valley of Fire is Nevada’s oldest and largest state park, dedicated 1935. Civilian Conservation Corps workers helped to make the new park accessible to visitors through the construction of roads and rest areas. The valley derives its name from the red sandstone formations and the stark beauty of the Mojave Desert. Ancient trees and early man are represented throughout the park by areas of petrified wood and 3,000 year-old Indian petroglyph. Popular activities include camping, hiking, picnicking and photography. The park offers a full-scale visitor center with extensive interpretive displays. Several group use areas are also available. The park is open all year.

Great Basin National Park – Federal legislation enacted in 1986 created the Great Basin National Park, the first national park in the state, which includes the area around Wheeler Peak and Lehman Caves in eastern Nevada. A small part of Death Valley National Park is located along Nevada’s western boundary with California. In the shadow of 13,063-foot Wheeler Peak, 5,000 year old bristlecone pine trees grow on rocky glacial moraines. Come to Great Basin National Park to experience the solitude of the desert, the smell of sagebrush after a thunderstorm, the darkest of night skies, and the beauty of Lehman Caves. Far from a wasteland, the Great Basin is a diverse region that awaits your discovery.

State Trees

The Single-Leaf Pinon (Pinus monophylla) is an aromatic pine tree with short, stiff needles and gnarled branches. The tree grows in coarse, rocky soils and rock crevices. Though its normal height is about 15 feet, the single-leaf pinon can grow as high as 50 feet under ideal conditions.

The Bristlecone Pine (Pinus aristata) shares the state tree designation. The bristlecone pine is the oldest living thing on Earth, with some specimens in Nevada more than 4,000 years of age. The tree can be found at high elevations. Normal height for older trees is about 15 to 30 feet, although some have attained a height of 60 feet. Diameter growth continues throughout the long life of the tree, resulting in massive trunks with a few contorted limbs.

Blog

In May 2013 we conducted a livestreaming hangout with Nevada travel experts Bethany Drysdale and Eileen Carter to learn about the new Nevada tourism campaign and recent events. The state has eye-candy galore and Nevadans love to tell good stories. ‘A world within, a state apart’ is the new tagline. What do you think? Also, a correction. When I mentioned ‘Red Rock’ I meant ‘Valley of Fire.’ My bad.
