There’s an old saying that goes, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” It could also say, “Whoever goes to Vegas stays in Vegas” and be just as accurate. Travelers are often so enamored by the bright lights of the casinos, nightclubs, and hotels that they fail to venture beyond Sin City and explore the rest of the state. In fact, you could spend weeks traveling around Nevada’s mountains and deserts without visiting Las Vegas at all.
Much like Vegas itself, the whole state of Nevada captivates with its weirdness and its sheer diversity of attractions. From art installations in the desert to alien-themed towns, there’s a whole other side to Nevada that doesn’t involve roulette wheels and strip clubs.
