Introduction

Don't believe for a second that Las Vegas is the only reason to visit the desert state of Nevada. Speaking of the City of Sin, thanks to Facebook, Twitter, and shared online bank accounts, don't believe for a second that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

Nevada has over 6,000,000 acres of protected wilderness. For outdoor enthusiasts, there is hiking, climbing, and mountain biking all over the desert and the Sierra Nevada, water sports and skiing at Lake Tahoe, and fishing at Cave and Ruby Lakes.

Check out Matador's articles on Burning Man, Portal Canyon, and of course our guides to enjoying Las Vegas.
