Las Vegas is the first place that comes to mind when someone mentions Nevada, and it’s almost impossible not to be drawn to its splendid lights. Sin City is so spectacular that it’s easy to forget that this state has many other amazing cities in store—including these three.
Reno is Nevada’s second most popular city, right after Vegas, and for a good reason. It’s also best known for being home to countless casinos, but most people decide to visit it because it’s a starting point to some of Nevada’s most beautiful natural wonders including the Sierra Nevada and Lake Tahoe.
Carson City may not be Nevada’s biggest or most touristy city, but that’s not stopping it from being the capital of this state. In addition to being home to several of Nevada’s most significant museums, it also offers easy access to Lake Tahoe.
One of Nevada’s most charming little towns is located just outside of Reno. It originated as a boomtown during the 1860s gold rush and it’s now best known for its retro feel. Make sure to visit one of its charming museums and take a ride on a trolley or a horse-drawn carriage during your visit.
