1. Only Nevada could provide the right atmosphere for Burning Man.
Which is why the Nevada desert has been the only venue for the event since the ’80s. Sorry, San Francisco.
2. There are more hot springs here than pretty much anywhere.
In fact, there are over 300 of them in the state. A Las Vegas local favorite is Goldstrike Hot Springs, where numerous soaking pools are accessible along a 6.5-mile round-trip hike, parts of which require a rope-assisted boulder scramble.
