Nevada Is Now Facing The Worst Mega-Drought In Over 1,200 Years

Those who study weather patterns have long been concerned about the drought-like conditions that have threatened the American West over the past two decades. However, it wasn’t until a recent study from the journal Science that experts were able to officially state that we are headed for an actual “megadrought”, the likes of which we haven’t seen in more than 1,200 years—the state of Nevada included.

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!
