Things to do in Nevada

Drive the 92-mile stretch of State Route 375 between Hiko and Warm Springs, NV, known as the Extraterrestrial Highway, which runs through beautiful desert and past the off-limits Nevada Test and Training Range and Area 51.

This otherworldly bowl-shaped hole is nearly 4,000 feet across and 430 feet deep, and was formed two million years ago when lava bubbled along a fault line. To get there, turn right onto US-6 east at the Warm Springs junction.

This tour operator runs daily bus trips to Red Rock Canyon and offers convenient hotel pick-up.

Revitalized Fremont Street has quickly become the favorite under-the-radar bar scene, and the Downtown Cocktail Room is appropriately hard to find. Its hidden door is marked only by a tiny Downtown sign, and its speakeasy feel is part of the appeal.

Check out Reno’s classic casino and the “biggest little” sign next door.

Blush Boutique, the centerpiece of the Wynn Las Vegas’s nightclub offerings, refers to itself as a “boutique nightclub,” a term intended to illustrate the venue’s efforts to combine the sophistication of a high-end lounge with the trappings of a vibrant nightclub.
