Road-trip itineraries, Nevada characters featured in new Nevada Visitor’s Guide

CARSON CITY — The Nevada Division of Tourism (TravelNevada) has released its 2018 Visitor’s Guide, available at visitors centers, airports, and hotels throughout the state. The free, 124-page guide also will be available for order or download from TravelNevada.com/travel-guides later this month.

“Nevada has the raw material for a memorable trip, whether you’re thinking of Las Vegas or of the state’s many natural recreation areas, or both,” David Peterson, interim director of the Nevada Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs, said. “This guide will help you plan a customized Nevada adventure.”

The 2018 guide extends TravelNevada’s longstanding road trip initiative with photo-illustrated maps of Nevada routes, including the Loneliest Road in America and the Great Basin Highway. The book also takes a closer look at such Nevada characters as state park ranger David Low and outdoor enthusiast Aurel Baker, personalities seen in the Nevada Insiders campaign featuring real people from the Silver State. Information on new attractions and facilities is included, as well as details about museums, state and national parks, and such activities as off-roading, bicycling and fishing. The guide is completed with lodging information by region.

Other tools to help plan a Silver State vacation include TravelNevada.com, where visitors can find road trip itineraries, search for information on things to do and places to stay, sign up for e-newsletters and order travel guides. Nevada visitors also can download the TravelNevada app, available on iPhone and Android. Also see Nevada Magazine, a bimonthly publication focusing on Silver State cities, towns, history, recreation and more.

The Nevada Division of Tourism (TravelNevada) is part of the Nevada Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs. It is responsible for promoting and marketing Nevada as a travel destination to domestic and international travelers. Operating within a performance-based budget structure, TravelNevada is funded solely by a percentage of lodging tax paid by overnight guests throughout the state. For more, visit www.TravelNevada.biz.
