When people think of the state of Nevada, they are often envisioning only three things. First of all, they are going to think about the city of Las Vegas. Second, they will think about Reno which is north of Las Vegas. Third, they are going to think about the Burning Man Festival which is near Gerlach in Nevada. However, there are many other things that you can do if you are in the state. Albeit, most of the state is very much like a gigantic desert. It is quite barren, but if you do have other hobbies that you might want to consider doing there, here are a few places you can go once you get to the state.
Look For Gold
One of the best places that you can do prospecting for gold is actually in northern Nevada. It is in a place called Rye Patch which is located close to Lovelock and also Winnemucca. People will take their gold detectors out to these areas and they will find a substantial amount of gold. If you have never done this before, it is recommended that you begin in this one location and also take advantage of the different tour guides that will get you out to these places where you can find gold very quickly.
Right next to these gold fields is a place called pyramid Lake. It is a giant body of water that is in northern Nevada. If you have been to the Burning Man Festival, you have driven right by it on your way to Gerlach and it will be off to your right as you are heading north. It is a huge lake, one that is identified by what looks like a pyramid in the middle of the lake. You can swim or take a boat out there. At the very least, it’s a very beautiful place to visit, especially during the early spring. You might want to consider going there if you are headed to Reno or any of the northern cities in the state of Nevada.
These are just a few of the offhanded ideas that you can consider if you would prefer not to spending your time in Nevada going to the casinos. There is so much to offer, but as you can imagine, most of it has to do with participating in a desert setting. This is why many people will often spend their time in the cities instead of out on the countryside. Either way, you are going to have a fun time in this beautiful outback that can only be experienced if you go to the state of Nevada.
