Nevada has a population of over 2.7 million and boasts many cities like Las Vegas, Reno, Henderson, Sunrise Manor, Paradise, and Spring Valley. Aside from the tourism stemming mainly to Las Vegas and Reno, the state is also known for its agriculture, including cattle, potatoes, and dairy products, as well as gold and silver mining. Ironically given its hot climate, the word Nevada itself comes from a Spanish word meaning “snow-covered”. Go figure!
If you’re into natural wonders, Nevada is the place to be. From the Colorado River at 479 feet (the state’s low point) to Boundary Peak, the state’s high point at over 13,000 feet, there’s a ton to explore. For those that like being in the water, make sure you check out Lake Tahoe, Pyramid Lake, the Carson River, or one of Nevada’s other great bodies of water.
What to do while you’re in Nevada? For starters, I’d check out:
- Bellagio Hotel and Casino: Yes, this is the same hotel and casino featured in Ocean’s 11. Gamble at the slots, swim in the pool or relax in the spa, and don’t miss the live shows!
- Hoover Dam: Built in the Depression, this dam keeps the Colorado River from overflowing and has some pretty scenic views to boot.
- Red Rock Canyon: This beautiful national park is a great place to rock climb, hike, or if you’re feeling a bit more sedentary, drive around.
The safest city in Nevada is Boulder City, which sits about 26 miles southeast of Las Vegas. They have only .57 violent crimes and 8.61 property crimes for the same population! Plus, both violent crime and property crime is down from last year, which I consider a good omen.
This statistic shows the number of violent crimes per 1,000 people in the past year. Violent crimes include forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, as defined by the FBI.
Finally, this number shows how many property crimes were committed in the past year per every 1,000 of the city’s residents. Property crimes include burglary, motor vehicle theft, arson and larceny-theft.
