Nevada Holidays

Get inspiration

Nevada? No sweat.

Landlocked Nevada is West Coast USA without the coastline. But, with lively cities, otherworldly landscapes and dramatic mountains, the Silver State certainly makes up for its lack of beaches. It’s easy to think that a holiday to Nevada revolves entirely around Las Vegas – and it certainly can do, if that’s what you’re coming for. But there’s so much more to see beyond Sin City. This place is also home to Lake Tahoe and a share of the Mojave Desert. Black Rock City in Nevada hosts the legendary Burning Man Festival each year. The Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam are both within easy reach for an incredible day out. And, if you want Nevada’s take on the Great American Road Trip, hit Highway 50. Passing through deserts and mountains – but barely any towns – this route is nicknamed ‘the loneliest road in America’.

The most mountainous state in the US, Nevada is big on outdoor adventures. You can try vintage Wild West experiences in Elko and Virginia City, or cycle heritage bike trails in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. Stargaze beneath the darkest of dark skies in Tonopah, and then hike the cirques, peaks and valleys of the magnificent Great Basin National Park.

But this place isn’t known as the Neon Capital of the World for nothing, and no holiday to Nevada is complete without a visit to Las Vegas. From The Strip – eight miles of themed hotels and monumental casinos – to the vast shopping malls and dazzling theatres, this is America's playground. Dive in and don’t be shy, as everything here is designed to entertain you from the moment you wake up. Almost every celebrity chef now has a presence in Las Vegas, which means exceptional restaurants and superior snacking all over the city. Immerse yourself in pool parties, decadent brunches, award-winning shows and colourful casinos. And, if you fancy a break from the buzz, just head out of town to Red Rock Canyon and discover ridiculously indulgent day spas – another of Nevada’s many surprises.

Things to do in Nevada

Come on holiday to Nevada for Las Vegas, but take the chance to expand your horizons too. Head to Tahoe and sail on North America’s largest alpine lake, or drop in on Reno to discover another type of Nevada nightlife in the ‘Biggest Little City in the World’. Switch it up and explore ghost towns, car forests and immense mountain ranges on a drive along lonely Highway 50. And discover traditional cowboy spirit in Elko, the town where they still make spurs and believe in good old fashioned hospitality. Or make for Virginia City and stroll the wooden sidewalks – you’ll feel like you’re in Wild West movie.

Nature-lovers should make tracks for Great Basin National Park for fresh mountain air and stupendous views. Carson City gives you an eyeful of the Sierra Nevada, traced through with enthralling pioneer history. And don’t miss Nevada’s monumental slice of the Mojave Desert in Valley of Fire State Park.

Days out

Nevada’s big on drama, doesn’t stint on majestic mountains, and really holds its own in terms of natural phenomena – a day out at Cathedral Gorge State Park proves that. But you can also hop across to Arizona for the day to see the incredible Grand Canyon. If you’ve got a car, you can go on a scenic road trip to the South Rim, or join a guided tour. But the best way to see this vast landmark is from the air. In a helicopter, you can really appreciate the scale of the Grand Canyon – and you’ll see the Hoover Dam on your way there, too.

Death Valley is another easy day trip. Just a two-hour drive to the west of Sin City, this desolate landscape looks like it should be on another planet. During summer, it’s one of the hottest places on Earth, while spring sees beautiful wildflowers. Some years, when conditions are perfect, there’s even a ‘super bloom’ when colourful flowers appear all over the valley. Whenever you go, make sure you stop off in Rhyolite – Nevada’s most haunting ghost town.

Nevada nightlife

Looking for nightlife? Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas, Entertainment Capital of the World. This city practically invented after-dark excess, so remember to pack plenty of energy for a night out – you’ll need it. There are hardly any clocks in this city, so it’s far too easy to dance the night away. And make sure you do some research, as Las Vegas nightlife is brilliant to the point of bewildering. The Strip alone is eight miles of pure razzle dazzle. You can sip pool cocktail parties at Foxtails, and enjoy sensational views from Caesar’s Palace High Rollers Ferris Wheel. Or, for something different, head to SlotZilla Ziplines above glittering Fremont East – the district that counts as an Old Town Las Vegas.

If partying isn’t your think, why not head to the theatre? Take your pick from over 100 spectacular shows every night of the year, ranging from starry one-off appearances to long-running legends like Cirque du Soleil at the Bellagio and Reve at Wynn Las Vegas.

Best time to visit Nevada

There really isn’t a bad time for a holiday to Nevada. The sub-tropical state has a dry desert climate, which generally means long, hot summers. Spring and autumn see warm, sunny weather, while winters are short and cool.  The northeast of the state bucks that trend, with areas around Reno known for great skiing in winter. And, unsurprisingly, there’s very little rainfall, particularly in the south of the state.

The best time to visit Las Vegas is spring or autumn. Temperatures from March to June range from 20°C to 30°C, and are about the same between September and November. The city’s very dry in summer, and the desert heat can be a challenge if you’re not acclimatised. Come winter, temperatures drop down to an average of 12°C from December to February, so it’s not quite pool party weather – although that never stops visitors heading to Las Vegas in droves to celebrate New Year.
