10 things you didn’t know you could do in Nevada

Think Nevada and no doubt the entertainment capital of the world, Las Vegas, will spring to mind. And while there are plenty of reasons to linger in this larger-than-life metropolis, venture past the city and you’ll discover another side to the Silver State.


1. Zip line over casinos in Las Vegas

Leave the famous Las Vegas Strip and head downtown to Fremont Street, where you can see some of the city’s oldest casinos, watch a famous nightly sound and light show or fly by zip line above the crowds!

Nevada

2. Go down into an old gold mine

The Techatticup Mine is the oldest, richest and most famous gold mine in Southern Nevada. You can explore on a guided tour down shafts up to 900 feet below the surface. Oh and the mine is also rumoured to be haunted.


3. Take a peek at Area 51

Head to Tikaboo Peak for the closest legal vantage point you’ll be able to get over the restricted Area 51, the top secret US Air Force facility synonymous with UFO sightings and conspiracy theories.


4. Have dinner in a jail

If you’re after a romantic evening, then this probably won’t be for you but the Jailhouse Cell Block Steak House in Elko offers evening meals in the comfort of a converted jail, complete with bars.

Nevada

5. Fly across a Canyon

Half an hour from Las Vegas at the top of the Red Mountains, you can get set up with a helmet and paraglide harness and fly at speeds of up to 60mph above Bootleg Canyon, with spectacular views of Boulder City.


6. Pick out a fossilised mammoth tusk at a National Monument

Considered by many to offer one of the greatest caches of Ice Age fossils in the world, Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument is a paleontological treasure trove. Apparently the fossils are so abundant that if you visit and don’t and don't see some sort of bone or fragment, ‘you’re doing it wrong!’


7. Paddle board on Lake Tahoe

Did you know that half of Lake Tahoe is in the Silver State? On the eastern side of the lake, you can hike in Lake Tahoe State Park, learn to paddle board or try some skiing at one of many winter resorts.

Nevada

8. Travel by jet pack in Pahrump

Want to take a jet-propelled flight over water like James Bond? Located at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in Pahrump, Jetpack America offers water jetpack flights for anyone wanting to soar above this oasis in the desert.


9. Go wine tasting in the Mojave Desert

The Pahrump Valley Winery is the oldest in Nevada and manages to produce great wines in the middle of the Mojave Desert. Drop in for a tasting or visit in October when you can join the grape stomp!


10. Stargaze in Great Basin National Park

Come to Great Basin National Park to experience the solitude of the desert, the darkest of night skies, and the beauty of Lehman Caves. The park is also known for its abundance of mountain flower meadows.

New York is one of her favourite cities in the world and her American dreams include driving all the way along Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica in an open top Chevy and catching the Coast Starlight train from LA to Seattle: As far as she’s concerned, it’s all about the journey.
