Nevada is a western U.S. state defined by its great expanses of desert, and by the 24-hour casinos and entertainment for which its largest city, Las Vegas, is famed. Las Vegas is home to elaborate theme hotels and luxury resorts that line its main thoroughfare, the Las Vegas Strip. The city's also home to museums such as the Mob Museum, extravagant live shows and upscale shopping malls and restaurants.
State Capital: Carson City.
Nevada joined the union as the 36th state on 31st October 1864. Nevada borders Idaho and Oregon to the north, Arizona to the southeast, Utah to the east and California to the west. Nevada is the 7th largest state in the US and also one of the most sparsely populated states. The state capital of Nevada is Carson City.
Located in a mountainous region that is known for sandy alkali deserts and vast semi-arid grasslands, Nevada is the aridest state in the United States. The name "Nevada" comes from the Spanish word "nevada" which means "snow-clad" which is coined in reference to Nevada's mountain scenery.
In the early 21st century, Nevada was one of the US' fastest growing states.This is a big contrast to Nevada's early days where the famous Virginia City thrived on rich silver mines. Over time Nevada progressed economically into a sophisticated urban environment. today Nevada is home to world famous casinos located in cities like Las Vegas and Reno.
Most Nevadans stay in urban areas and around half of all Nevadans reside in Las Vegas metropolitan area alone. Nevada still has vast unexplored and undeveloped resources and its landscape features a unique combination of big cities built across vast desert found nowhere else in the United States.
