Welcome to the next post in my series highlighting states we have visited throughout the years. I hope you will enjoy coming along for the ride!
I will be featuring the states alphabetically. The next state is
Nevada became the 36th state on October 31, 1864. The capital is Carson City.
For our one and only trip to Nevada we stayed in, where else, Las Vegas. The Oasis RV Park, a short drive from the Vegas Strip, was our home during our stay. I enjoyed relaxing in the pool when we weren’t wandering around the Vegas Strip, driving to Hoover Dam or walking next door to the huge Bass Pro Shop and it’s casino.
For our first excursion to Sin City we decided to try the free trolley shuttle. Big mistake. Even though it was only May it was hot riding around in the open air trolley. We also discovered the stops were behind all the major casinos so we didn’t get to see much of the Vegas strip. Once we departed the trolley at the Stratosphere we enjoyed wandering around and stopping in a few of the casinos to play a few slots. Our pockets were a little emptier and the casinos had a few more dollars in their coffers when we left.
When in Vegas seeing a show is a must. We called at the last minute and snagged two tickets to Cirque de Soleil’s Mystere at Treasure Island. It was Memorial Day weekend and there were throngs of people everywhere. I loved seeing the city at night and the show was spectacular.
One day we took a drive to Hoover Dam. On the way to the dam we had spectacular views of Lake Mead. Traffic was bumper to bumper as we crossed the dam.
Our next destination was Zion National Park in Utah. As we drove east to the park we traveled on some mountainous roads.
