Located in the western part of the country, Nevada is the 7th biggest state of America in terms of physical size but only the 34th largest in terms of population, making it the 9th most sparsely populated state of all. Having borders with Arizona, California, Utah, Idaho, and Oregon, Nevada is also known as the 'Silver State' due to the many silver mines and silver industries that have contributed to the state's growth over the years.


Mostly made up of desert, Nevada stretches out over more than 110,000 square miles and is home to over 3 million people. The state is best known in the modern era for being the home of major gambling and entertainment cities like Las Vegas and Reno. Vegas is the biggest city in the state, with millions of visitors from all around the world flocking to Sin City's big casinos and unique hotels each and every year.

There's plenty of fun to be had in and around areas like Vegas, Reno, and Laughlin, with lots of shows to watch and games to play, but if you're less interested in gaming and would prefer something a little more natural, Nevada is also home to some very special natural areas like Red Rock Canyon National Park, Death Valley National Park, and the eastern side of Lake Tahoe, which is one of the biggest lakes and most popular recreation areas in all of the United States.

A hugely popular spot with campers and RV enthusiasts, Nevada is home to many campgrounds and RV parks just waiting to accommodate you on your next trip.
