What are some small Nevada towns worth visiting?

Since Las Vegas gets most of the attention when Nevada is discussed, other small towns remain pretty quiet. That doesn't mean you can't find plenty of adventures all across Nevada. Here are some small Nevada towns worth visiting:

  • Jackpot, NV: You just know there had to be a Jackpot Nevada and this small town nestled up to the Idaho border is of course a gambling town. A couple of the favorite spots in town are the Horeshu Club and Cactus Pete's. Interestingly enough, these two establishments originated in Idaho but moved across the border when gambling was prohibited in the state.
  • Verdi, NV: Once a thriving logging town, this small town butts up to California near the Truckee River. When you come to visit be sure to head to Crystal Peak Park for a nice quiet picnic. Since we are in Nevada after all, the town does have a casino as well - try your luck at The Boomtoom Casino.
  • Panaca, NV: Not all of Nevada is a gambling party town. This quiet town is the only "dry" town in the state, and one of only two where gambling is outlawed. The stunning Cathedral Gorge State Park is right outside the city limits and is a wonderful place for outdoor adventures, hiking, and exploring. A hot spot in town is the Panaca Hot Springs, where you can enjoy swimming in a warm spring-fed pool.
  • Caliente, NV: Speaking of hot towns, Caliente also has a hot spring. Head to Kershaw-Ryan State Park for hiking and outdoor adventures galore. Don't miss the stunning views of Rainbow Canyon.
