About Nevada


imgNevada is an arid state of the USA, lying between California and Utah. Most of the state is within the Great Basin, but parts of the northeast drain into the Snake River and the the southern portion is within the Mohave desert and the Colorado river drainage.

There is nothing more unique in Nevada than Las Vegas. The city was literally constructed out of the desert in the mid-1900s. Entrepreneur and alleged gangster, Bugsy Siegel was instrumental in the development of the early Las Vegas Strip. His hotel, The Flamingo, was built in 1946. Gambling is legal almost everywhere and even McCarren International Airport, the one near Las Vegas, features a large variety of slot machines near the flight gates.

Outside of Las Vegas and gambling, Nevada is well known for its legalized prostitution. In contrast, the state is one of the last remaining that doles out punishments for drug crimes based on the practice of mandatory sentences. Politically the state has been inconsistent. Nevada is considered neither Republican nor Democrat.

Area 51 is an alleged site maintained by the Federal government, specifically the Air Force. The site, allegedly created to run top-secret weapons tests, is an unproven urban legend. Some UFO fanatics believe that the government captured a UFO years ago and has kept it securely hidden at Area 51. Next door to Area 51 is the actual Department of Energys, Nevada Test Site. This is an actual weapons test area. Black Rock Desert is a 100-mile tract of some of the flattest territory in the world. Located in the northwest part of the state the area is often used for unique studies that require flat and even ground. Why so flat? The region is the bed of an ancient lake.

An unusual Nevada event is the annual Burning Man festival. This unique celebration features a large image of a wooden man that is set ablaze. The burning effigy flames for hours. The event began in the mid-80s among a group of friends. Today the event draws thousands of visitors and now takes place in the Black Rock Desert.

Magnificent Horse property 12 miles from the Las Vegas Strip.

Las Vegas, Clark County, Nevada

This property fronts Highway 160 which is one of five major Highways into Las Vegas. Currently the property is a working horse property. The future of the property is only as limited as the owners initiative. It consists of 2.75 acres of high desert and is at the base on the Spring Mountains Range. It is surrounded and bordered by BLM federal lands in the Red Rock Conservation Area. This allows for privacy and also guarantees that there will not be future development in surrounding properties. Horse properties in the Las Vegas area are very limited. No trailers needed here. Open the corral and go riding. Then when you return to the ranch put on your fancier boots and go into the Las Vegas Strip just a few miles away. The best of all worlds at your finger tips.
