There's more to Nevada than just the Strip

It's true that most people descend upon the state to try their luck on the slots and tables. You know what they say, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas". Whether you come away a loser or a winner, it's hard not to have fun in Sin City. However, there's much more to the state than the razzle-dazzle of the Strip. The diverse landscape of dry deserts, punctuated by soaring rock formations and the pine forests of Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, make epic playgrounds for all sorts of outdoor adventures.

Lake Tahoe is one of Nevada's highlights

If you can drag yourself away from the neon-lit Strip in Las Vegas, you'll be surprised at how much you can do in the great outdoors. The dry desert and rust-colored rock formations make for a spectacular landscape to hike through. For a complete change in scenery, you can try to nab a Nevada vacation rental on the shores of Lake Tahoe, in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Here, you can glide across the forest-flanked freshwater lake aboard kayaks, or race down the mountain trails on bikes. The flurries of snow in winter draw in thrill-seekers with their snowboards in tow.

Roll the dice in Nevada's Sin City

They don't call Las Vegas "Sin City" for nothing. The dazzling neon lights have long been a magnet for those looking to roll the dice. Fortunes have been made and lost in this seductive city, which stays open for business 24 hours a day. Away from the tables and slots, the city hosts some of the finest shows and theater productions in the country, as well as being a desert outpost for some of the world's most prominent chefs. For a little break from the Strip, you can don you tin foil hat and head off to explore the ominous spots around Area 51.

No umbrella necessary in Nevada

Nevada is the country's driest state and rarely sees any precipitation. Needless to say, umbrella sales here are not making anyone rich. Just because the heavens rarely open over the deserts here, that's not to say that there aren't swings in temperature. Only the hardiest types visit Nevada during the sizzling summers, unless of course you're planning to while away your days in the air-conditioned casinos. To explore the state's great outdoors, try to score a Nevada vacation rental between March and April or October and November, for comfortable walking temperatures.

Perfectly adapted wildlife in Nevada

The wildlife in Nevada is as hardy as the weather. It takes some special skills to live out in the dry deserts of the state and there's a surprisingly large number of fauna which possess them. If you're staying in a rural Nevada vacation rental, when you walk along the trails you could spot everything from lizards basking in the midday sun, to little scorpions scampering across the sandy paths. Elsewhere in the state, you'll need your binoculars, because you're not going to want to miss sightings of falcons and eagles circling on the thermals.
