You’ll Marvel At the Largest Man-Made Crater from the Atomic Age in Nevada

Nevada played an important role in the testing of nuclear weapons during the “Atomic Age.” The landscape of the state now bears the scars of that activity, sometimes in spectacular ways.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate


The Sedan Crater is located in Nye County and you can only visit via the Department of Energy tours. If you’re interested in a tour, contact the local office in Las Vegas. Would you go visit the Sedan Crater? Share in the comments!
