The driest state in the US, Nevada resonates with the sound of freedom. From the glittering lights of Las Vegas to abandoned ghost towns, Nevada is a state of booms and busts. The home of incessant partying and the loneliest highways, this state offers something for the adventurer, party animal, soul seeker and road tripper. This road trip takes you through it all - the Wild West (or at least what's left of it), abandoned mines, wind-and-water-sculpted canyons, barren deserts, the loneliest road in the United States, the Top-Gun training base and more casinos than you can count.
