When it comes to Nevada, life certainly will be a brand new experience, as this is a state that is like no other! There are many active adult communities in Nevada that you can consider. Let us provide you some info on this state to help you consider it as a selected choice.
Nevada is a state that features high mountain ranges and deserts, ranches, valleys, canyons, sand dunes and various other arid landscapes. It is the driest state in the country, as it is located in the Great Basin Desert, and receives less rainfall than any other state. Sage grows in abundance in this state, hence, the nickname "Sagebrush State". If you do not wish to live in a crowded state, Nevada is the ideal choice for you. It is the least populated state, and most of the population is centered in greater Las Vegas, the most famous city for gaming in the USA. Apart from the casino industry, mineral production is an extremely successful industry in Nevada. The 1858 Comstock Lode is the first discovery that spurred Nevada's population growth. Nevada is also known as the "Silver State" because of the abundance of silver found in the area. Agriculture is another important part of Nevada where the state grows alfalfa, barley, wheat and potatoes. The climate is sunny and dry, and the heat can reach more than 100 degrees in Las Vegas in July and August. So carry plenty of sun block, bottles of water handy at hand, and wear a hat during this time of year.
What to Do in Nevada
There is a LOT of excitement and fanfare to expect in Nevada. How can you doubt this with a place such as Las Vegas being its most thriving city? Tourism is the largest industry in Nevada just because of Las Vegas and with 40 million visitors per year it is no wonder. There are a massive number of entertainment, gambling and sports resorts, as well as beautiful sights to see.
Nevada is an ideal state for senior citizens because of its weather and laid-back lifestyle. We say this because not all parts of Nevada are as glitzy as its signature city, Las Vegas. There are also a number of places to see and things to do when in Nevada. For example, although a dry state, there are over 200 lakes and reservoirs and 600 streams and rivers that enable you to fish where you please. The species of fish vary depending on where you fish, but you can be sure to catch anything from Red band trout to Yellowstone cutthroat to mountain whitefish.
