Nevada’s
Best Cities for Sleep

2020

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.  

Fast facts about Nevada: 

  • Las Vegas has more hotel rooms than other city in the world
  • There’s no other state as dry as Nevada, which gets only 9.5 inches of rain a year
  • Only 25% of Nevadans were born in the state where they now live
  • Nevada boasts the highest number of hot springs of any state in the US
  • More than 40 million visitors come to Las Vegas every year

Visitors to Las Vegas may be able to shun sleep for a few days of R&R, but how about the folks who live here? Is healthy slumber elusive for those who call this great state home? Let’s find out which cities in Nevada made the grade when it comes to sleep.

38 %

The percentage of adults who report insufficient sleep each year. Insufficient sleep increases the chance of weight gain, cognitive problems, and cardiovascular disease

27 %

The percentage of adults who report a BMI — or body mass index — above 30%. Higher body mass usually equals a greater risk of sleep apnea

18 %

The percentage of adults who report excessive drinking. Heavy drinking is linked to disrupted sleep and less REM sleep
