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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.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!
