Cities for Sleep
Nevada conjures images of the Las Vegas Strip, bright blue skies, and dramatic desert landscapes. But there’s much more to this great state than casinos and sunshine. Nevada was the 36th state to join the Union and is nicknamed The Silver State, an homage to the silver-rush days of the mid-1800s. Nevada is also the world’s fourth-largest supplier of gold, and produces more than any other state in the country. The name Nevada comes from Sierra Nevada, a Spanish term meaning snow-covered mountain range.
