Put the journey before the destination and follow your curiosity along a Nevada road trip.
It’s time for cowboys and counterculture. Wildlife and wilder tales. Open roads and open hearts. Sure, Nevada teems with destinations you can only dream of, but it’s the journey you take to get there where your new favourite stories come to life. In fact, here in the Road Trip Capital of the USA, with our breathtaking scenic byways and endless dirt-road horizons, “taking the road less travelled” isn’t just an idea, it’s practically a guarantee. Fancy yourself a foodie? A die-hard history buff? A thrill-seeking adventure junkie? All of the above and beyond? Perfect. Point is, whichever corner of this state you venture to, you’re bound to uncover the kind of unexpected encounters, memorable characters, and only-in-Nevada experiences that make this place so special. So, feel free to wander. However, chances are we have a Nevada road trip with your name all over it. Read on for the highlights.

Come scale the tallest outdoor rock climbing wall in the world, paddleboard on one of the clearest (and coldest) bodies of water in North America, knock one back at the oldest saloon in Nevada, and walk the original wooden boardwalks in Virginia City where famed writer Mark Twain got his start (and his pen name).
The Death Drive
With its stark desertscapes, thermometer-shattering climate, and all-around extreme reputation, Death Valley National Park is a natural centrepiece for a road trip that visits ghost towns, rugged biker bars, and a charming little family-run coffin shop.
