Las Vegas Isn’t the Only City in Nevada Worth the Visit

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

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.

Have you been to Lake Tahoe? This is the secret cove, one of the most beautiful and isolated beaches on the Lake. It’s a short little hike (0.5 miles) but well worth it.. . Here are some tips when visiting Secret Cove… . 1) Go at Sunrise or Sunrise (I went at 8am and had the beach to MYSELF until almost 10) . 2) Best place to park? Google maps Secret Cove, once you get there, park on the side of the road (totally legal), Then look for the wooden sign on the side of the road that says TRAIL. You will see some steps right next to it. Go down the stairs and follow the trail down to the lake, there are many trails, but don’t worry they all go to the same place! . 3) I know you are going to the “Beach” but dress like you are going on a hike (with your bathing suit underneath of course). Wear sneakers! . If you plan on traveling to Lake Tahoe In the near future, save this post! This place is an absolute MUST! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #laketahoelife #laketahoeofficial #secretcove #sandharbor #laketahoe #covidtravel #travel2020 #bucketlist #bucketlistadventures #bucketlistideas #bucketlisttravel #travelphotography #traveltheworld🌍 #travelwhileyoucan #wheretonext #travelinfluencer #travelinfluencers #traveltipsandtricks #traveltips #travelguide #travelblogger #travelblog #travelbloggerlife #travelgram #adventurejunkie #girlswhotravelsolo #girlswhotraveltheworld #igtravelworld #igtraveller #travel_capture

Virginia City

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.
