Cover-Outside-FINALCARSON CITY, Nev. — Lose yourself under a star-scattered night sky at Great Basin National Park, redefine your limits in a high-performance Ferrari in Las Vegas or step outside your comfort zone among the red sandstone cliffs of Valley of Fire State Park. The Nevada experience is as varied as the millions of visitors who travel the state’s vast desert valleys and forested mountain ranges. Whether it’s a road trip on the ET Highway or a mountain biking trek in the Reno-Tahoe area, Nevada provides the backdrop for transformative travel. Plan your next getaway with the free 2017 Nevada Visitor’s Guide, available online and at area visitor centers. “The most memorable trips are the ones that challenge and change you, and Nevada offers that opportunity,” Nevada Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs Director Claudia Vecchio said. “We encourage all visitors to explore the state to its fullest and take home stories of unexpected adventures and perhaps even life-changing encounters. Nevada’s 2017 Visitor’s Guide provides ideas and itineraries to create a customized Nevada experience.” New to the publication this year are sections on the state’s fishing and off-road opportunities, as well as new road trip itineraries including Burner Byway and Free-Range Art. The guide also has information on how visitors can share their Nevada stories with fellow travelers. (Visit TravelNevada.com, click on the “My Favorites” link and log in.)
