Dedicated in 1922 as Nevada’s very first national monument, this underground cave system celebrated its 100th anniversary with a year-long celebration in 2022. Located within Great Basin National Park, Lehman Caves stuns with more than 300 shield formations, and its intricate ecosystem is home to a handful of creatures found nowhere else on Earth – like the pseudoscorpion.
Development along Extraterrestrial Highway
Fuel up for your trip on the Extraterrestrial Highway. The first gas station (and new business!) in the tiny town of Rachel for more than a decade, the Alien Cowpoke offers up tons of photo ops and is a great place to get a lay of the land for the pit stops in the area. This welcoming stop also has plans to open an RV resort and campground, an official amphitheater area, and Alien Cowpoke Museum offering artifacts, pictures, maps, and stories of alien encounters.
Discovering King Tut’s Tomb
A century ago, Howard Carter made the greatest archeological discovery of all time when he uncovered the lost tomb of Tutankhamun and its magnificent treasure trove. Celebrate this amazing find by exploring the immersive exhibition Discovering King Tuts Tomb, now open at Luxor. Follow in Carters footsteps, peer through the wall of the antechamber, unlock the burial room, and come face-to-face with the mummy. Behold the artistry of the nested coffins and view Tuts notorious death mask. Discover why the Egyptians used mummification as a way to preserve and honor their pharaoh leader. Enter a world that sparkles with gold and learn what the treasures themselves reveal about the boy king and ancient Egyptian culture. With the audio guide, guests can transport themselves back in time by hearing Howards own retelling of the moment he first set foot inside the tomb. Light your torch, break the seal, defy the mummys curse and enter if you dare. Tickets start at $33.

Dining al fresco in Reno Tahoe, and Food Truck Fridays at Idlewild Park is an event that can’t be missed. Come hungry because the weekly event usually draws around 35 food trucks, including those from favorite local restaurants such as Liberty Food and Wine Exchange. These trucks will serve everything from Korean BBQ and poke bowls, to pizza and Mexican street tacos. Be sure to save room for dessert because they have that too. Try gelato, frozen dipped fruit, crepes and shaved ice are just a few of the options to choose from.
Las Vegas Hotels
When you think hotels and hospitality, you think Nevada. Las Vegas alone boasts more than 160,000 rooms—more than any other city in the U.S.—and just added more at one of the swankiest properties to open in Downtown Las Vegas in years. But recently, it’s not just what’s “new” to the scene, but also what has rejoined it, with a couple of gorgeously restored hotels, both originally built in the 1900s—one in a former bank building, and one which now serves killer tacos.
