Top 5 Places to Visit in Nevada

If you live in Nevada, you’ve probably visited most of the tourist sites, i.e. Las Vegas. Here are some other beautiful (and natural) sights to see in the silver state.

Valley of Fire

This state park of 79 years has the longest history in the state, and there’s plenty to do and see. Go camping, hiking, or petroglyph-hunting – there are 3,000 year old ones to be found!

Lamoille Canyon

Take a trip to northeastern Nevada and you’ll find the Lamoille Canyon situated in the Ruby Mountains. It is quite a sight to behold with its beautiful meadows, waterfalls, avalanche chutes, and exotic wildlife.

Cathedral Gorge

Another state recognized/protected park and wonder is the Cathedral Gorge State Park. You won’t believe your eyes when you see the patterns in the clay on the valley walls. Follow the trails for the best (and safest) views.

Lake Tahoe

Take a dip in the hot summer months in some of the clearest water you’ve ever seen. It is the largest alpine lake in North America, and well worth the trip it may take to get there.


Tonopah is most famous for its incredible view of the stars. The roads in the town are specifically mapped out for stargazing, and it has been speculated that you can see at least 7,000 stars from them.

Road trips around the state can prove to be more adventurous than you thought – especially when you get away from the lights of Las Vegas – the brightest light seen from space. Travel safely and get the proper insurance with Heuer Insurance.
