Over 55 communities in Nevada are in the northern and southern parts of the state. Reno in the northern part of the state gives easy access to resort areas around Lake Tahoe, the Sierras and Sacramento.
In Southern Nevada is Las Vegas for fabulous night life, entertainment, casinos, and mild climate. It is an easy drive from Las Vegas and Henderson to Southern California and Los Angeles and San Diego areas.
Mesquite, 80 miles north of Las Vegas, is near the Utah and Arizona borders.
My point is there is lots to do exploring these areas in and around Nevada. You have your skiing, your hiking, entertainment, national parks, and on and on.
