What to Know about Driving in Nevada
Whether you want to unearth graveyard tales in ghost towns, treat yourself to mineral baths in hot springs, or cruise from the Valley of Fire State Park to Great Basin National Park, chances are, we’ve got a #NVRoadTrip with your name all over it.
Nevada teems with bucket-listable destinations. But the best road trips are all about the journey where your Silver State stories come to life. So hit one of our scenic byways and feel free to roam. However, there are a few need-to-know tips and tricks for keeping your wheels turning and the adventure unfurling.
Driving in Nevada
Before you buckle up for the adventure of a lifetime, better brush up on a few basics, both on and off the pavement. From navigating wintry roads to braking for the occasional cow, Nevada highways are untamed, unforgettable, and unlike any other state’s.
Cell Service
In some of the more off-grid slices of Silver State sanctuary, cell signals are scattered at best. Map out your #NVRoadTrip with gas stations, meal breaks, and night stops. And always tell someone where you’re headed and when you plan to return.
Nevada is a land of extremes. Plan for glorious changes in weather, climate, and terrain as you explore our vast state. Pack clothes for both warm and cold temps in any season, and don’t forget your swimsuit. Because you never know what Nevada will do next.
Travel Guides
Order or download our Official Nevada Visitor’s Guide and get your hands on events, things to do, and even more road trip ideas. You’ll find page after page of surprising scenery, intriguing attractions, and endless inspiration for your Nevada adventure.
Pack all the snacks, crank your favorite playlist, and hit the open road, baby! Use #NVRoadTrip, too, so we can digitally ride along on your next Silver State adventure.
