Nevada RV Rentals are is a great way to see the state. Pick up an RV in Las Vegas, Henderson, or Reno, and let’s go.
When we think of traveling in an RV through Nevada we all think of visiting the Las Vegas Strip and the Grand Canyon, but let’s look outside the box and see what other treasures are to be found when traveling in a Nevada RV rental.
Las Vegas Nevada is known for its bright lights and its neon signs. What happens to those signs when they are no longer being used? Well, they go to the Neon Boneyard of course. This 3-acre lot contains over 150 decommissioned signs from Las Vegas’ past, including the original Aladdin’s lamp from Aladdins Casino and the original sign from the Golden Nugget. Tours are available daily and try to go at night so that you can see some of the old signs lit up.
Atlas Obscura says it best the Fly Geyser is a collision of human error and natural geothermic pressure resulted in the rainbow-colored geologic wonder. Off of State Route 34 outside of Gerlach Nevada nearly 100 years ago a well was drilled looking to provide water for farming. The water that appeared from this well was nearly 200 degrees, obviously not suitable for farming this well was just left. What formed was a 12-foot cone of calcium carbonate. The red and green coloring of the geyser is caused by thermophilic algae making these mineral structures breathtaking. With a Nevada RV rental, you can drive out to the geyser.
Area 51 is located in Lincoln County Nevada. This famous top-secret military testing facility is rumored to be home to aliens and their spaceships. You will not get into Area 51, the closest you will get is to a no trespassing sign. It would make a great story though if you and your Nevada RV rental had to be escorted from the area by armed guards. (USA RV Rentals in no way endorses this behaviour:)
Rhyolite Ghost Town
Rhyolite Ghost Town is located 6 miles west of Beatty Nevada. In 1905 in the middle of a gold rush, this town grew to 1500 people. The town boasted a 3 story building, a school for 250 children, hotels, stores, and even an ice plant. 11 years later the lights were turned out and now the only things left were the ruins of a few old buildings.
Forest of the Last Church
Visit the International Forest of the Last Church. Over 40 automobiles, including cars, trucks, and vans are scattered around stacked on one another and balanced on their ends. These vehicles have been painted by two artists whose vision was to create a place for people to get out and explore while speaking out against organized religion. You can drive out to Goldfield Nevada in your RV and take your time looking at this exhibit.
How about a stop at the Bristlecone Pines of the Great Basin. These trees are the oldest in the world. One tree names Methuselah is almost 5000 years old.
