Nevada Tourism and Vacations & Travel Information.

The State of Nevada, for the purposes of tourism, can be divided into five geographical regions. Las Vegas Territory consists of the pointy southern part of the state and includes Las Vegas, of course; Boulder City and Henderson, both towns between Las Vegas and Hoover Dam; Laughlin, on the Colorado River. Pioneer Territory is extends from the Las Vegas Territory to the middle of the state, the upper extent roughly seesawing about the latitude of Lake Tahoe and Reno. Here is where historic mining and ghost towns proliferate and mountain bikers, ATVers, sandboarders, and paragliders practice their arts. Gold is still being mined here. Just above Pioneer Territory is Pony Express Territory. As might be expected it consists of a narrow strip of land spanning the state. Is U.S. Highway 50, really "The Loneliest Road in America?" Not for everyone. The town of Eureka, originally a mining town in the 1800s, has preserved and restored a number of historic buildings, most note ably the town opera house which has been turned into a performing arts and convention center. Cowboy Country, the northernmost territory, is defined by the Humbolt River. Followed by the transcontinental railroad, the Humbolt Trail passes through what is perhaps the last remaining true West of cowboys and free-range cattle. Finally, we come to Reno-Tahoe Territory, a narrow strip along the western edge of the northern half of the state. Here is the beauty of the Carson and Sierra Nevada mountain ranges and, at the northern end, the Black Rock Desert. Carson City, the state capitol, is here, as are Reno and the eastern shore of Lake Tahoe.
