Nevada is much more than just glitz and glamour. Naturally, our minds gravitate towards Las Vegas when we think of this great state. After all, it has long been said that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas baby! While touring this state, you will certainly want to spend some time in the city where fortunes are made and lost, but there is so much more to see here as well.
Arizona’s neighbor to the north is a diverse state with much to see. Making your way through the state while on a charter bus will allow you and your group to create your own itinerary. This can begin at the Hoover Dam, which is one of the largest in the world and a spectacle to behold in its own right. Only a short drive from the city of Las Vegas, there are regular walking tours around the area that will allow you the opportunity to marvel at the view from above Lake Mead. In the surrounding area is some of the most beautiful terrain in the desert, and the sunsets here really should not be missed.
After a day spent at the Hoover Dam, the next logical place to go with your bus rental is to Las Vegas. There is much more to the city than just high rollers and wedding chapels, although there is certainly nothing wrong with those either! The advantage of being on a bus is that you can go to any show you desire, see great tourist attractions, ride the roller coaster atop the Stratosphere, and still make it to your favorite buffet in time for dinner. Speaking of shows – you can schedule your tour to coincide with any of the dozen or so nightly performances gracing the strip alone. Choose to stay in whichever hotel you want and for as many nights as your itinerary allows. When you are ready, you can hop back on your charter and continue your tour of Nevada.
Henderson is the second most populous city in this state and is only a quick 20 mile drive down Interstate 515. This is a great place to go golfing, enjoy a spa day, or do some shopping. This is a big city in the desert, so all of the resort amenities you would expect to have are afforded to you here. Some of the most beautiful golfing is here, and the spring and fall weather cannot be beat. Imagine an 8am tee time in the middle of October with the temperature in the mid 70s. That is likely what you find on this trip, so that will make you the envy of your friends back home. Of course, there is more to see throughout this great state as well, so when you are ready to get the bus back in gear, you can consider going up north to Reno.
Reno is a spectacular city because it offers a bit of everything, depending on the time of year that you visit. If you love water sports, you will enjoy boating or jet skiing the summer away on any of the three major lakes in the area. The winter brings colder temperatures and snow, which results in the opening of 18 (yes, you read that right) ski resorts in the general vicinity. Needless to say, this is the place to be in Nevada for skiing in the winter. This area of the state is quite a contrast from the desert valley of Las Vegas below. On the journey up to the north, you will enjoy breathtaking scenery as you pass through old mining towns, drive over mountains to view cliffs that have been millions of years in the making, all before arriving at one of the finest resort style cities in the West.
So, as you can see, Nevada has a bit of everything. It is a state that can be enjoyed year round, so no matter what your interests are, you will find it here. With such a diverse and large area to see, there really is no better way to experience the region in all of its majesty than by getting on a bus and traveling down the open road.
