Hoover Dam

While both casinos and gambling are synonymous with Nevada, so are a multitude of other adventures: national parks and wide, open spaces, historic towns and sites, arts and entertainment, top-notch restaurants, and communal events like Burning Man. Or if you're into motoring, consider taking in Nevada's spectacular scenery, attending the Richard Petty Driving Experience at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, or driving down Highway 50. Here are the best things to do in Nevada. Photo: AK-DigiArt/Fotolia


»Hoover Dam

Hoover Dam


Hoover Dam is considered a modern civil engineering wonder and is a National Historic Landmark. The visitors center is open 363 days a year and two guided tours of the dam are available: a 30-minute Powerplant Tour and a 60-minute Dam Tour.

Tours include media presentations, exhibits, and commentary by guides that serve to educate visitors about the dam's features and operations, while the Dam Tour even includes exploring passages within the dam itself. For visitors planning to both take a tour and look around the structure, it's recommended to plan for at least 2 hours on site. 25 Best Things to Do in Nevada - Photo: robert cicchetti/Fotolia

»Ward Charcoal Ovens State Historic Park

Ward Charcoal Ovens State Historic Park


Located near the basin that served as a major stopover for settlers traveling on the Cave Valley Road, this park is named for the six historic charcoal ovens located on site. The beehive-shaped ovens were in operation between 1876 and 1879, during the silver boom period.

Once their purpose of producing charcoal ceased, they served to shelter people during bad weather and rumor has it that bandits used the ovens as a hideout. The park provides plenty of recreational resources, including picnic facilities, camping, trails (for hiking and biking during summer and for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter), fishing, and nature study.
