10 Things You’ve Grown To Undeniably Hate If You’re From Nevada
Without a doubt, Nevada is a great place to call home. However, many longtime residents have grown to hate it.
Listed below are 10 things many Nevadans have grown to undeniably hate about living in the Silver State.
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:
1. Nevada's dry heat can become quite unbearable.
However, many Nevadans prefer it over humid heat. Either way, it's hot! Remember to ALWAYS stay hydrated.
2. Everyone automatically assumes you live in Las Vegas.
There are many more places to live in Nevada other than Las Vegas. Maybe someday outsiders will get it.
3. There's no state lottery.
Because of all the gambling that's already accessible in Nevada, many people believe not having a lottery isn't a big deal. There are many residents who don't go to casinos, but they would take full advantage of a lottery. Even though having a lottery could hurt Nevada's gambling industry, it could help the state--especially the schools.
4. It's a long drive to get to anywhere.
If you're in a larger city such as Las Vegas, you've got to sit through many traffic lights. If you live in a smaller town, you'll drive for miles until arriving at your destination. So, pretty much everywhere in Nevada has a minimum 15-20 minute drive.
5. There are many areas in Nevada with awful cell phone reception.
Nevada is the most mountainous U.S. state. The majority of these mountainous areas have little to no cell phone reception. It can become very frustrating to say the least.
6. Having to deal with tourists.
Yes, tourists help Nevada's economy in a major way, but sometimes the overcrowding can be too much. Plus, many tourists lack respect for Nevada and trash it before returning home. Ridiculous!
7. Nevada's traffic conditions can become quite frustrating.
For example, if you're driving in a larger city such as Las Vegas, you've got to take on horrible drivers and hope you don't develop road rage. If you're taking an afternoon drive in the more rural areas, you have to worry about hitting a cow, especially since Nevada is an open-range state.
8. The Las Vegas Strip is far from glamorous.
Many out-of-towners assume the Las Vegas Strip is glamorous, but Nevadans know the truth. It's dirty, crowded, and smells like cigarettes and alcohol.
9. There are no major sports teams in Nevada.
Because Nevada isn't a densely populated state, there aren't any major sports teams here. This is a real bummer for sports fans.
10. Scorpions are EVERYWHERE!
There are 23 different types of scorpions in Nevada. Most of these live in the desert, but some might be living inside your house at this very moment. Because scorpions are nocturnal, be sure to always check inside your shoes before putting them on.
