An-Ode-to-the-Arid-Love-of-America-NevadaNow you must be thinking why am I giving an ode to a dry desert place of America? Well, my dear readers, today I will be taking you all down the road of Nevada. Nevada is America’s ‘Battle born’ State. Why? Because it was titled as a state, during the infamous Civil War of USA, so it has a history in its sandy breeze.

The first Europeans who came to this area who were Spanish, named it as Nevada (which means snow in Spanish) as to depict the Snowy Mountains in winter. The coolest thing about Nevada is its Liberation Laws. It is legal to gamble, its capital Carson City is an independent place. Laws on marriage and Divorce are so lenient that it attracts people from the entire world to come and visit this place. Till date Nevada’s Tourism Industry is the biggest employer.

The state has both man-made and natural attractions to boast about. The main attractions are gambling and entertainments.

Now, we do have a list of places which are a must visit but here are the top five places to visit when you are in Nevada:

  1. The Las- Vegas Strip:

It is purely entertainment and it has something for everyone. Millions of people visit every year to this area of 4.2 miles. It consists of casinos for gambling, entertainment facilities with rides and shopping, live music, theatres, restaurants and what not. It has something for sports lovers also, golf courses. 25 of the city’s hotels are located in the strip. The highlight of this city is the flamboyant night life and free tram rides, all day long.
