About Nevada

Nevada is notorious for its rich mineral deposits and is nicknamed after one its major minerals, silver. However, “The Silver State” is also famous for its gold production and yields 8.7% of the world’s gold output. Even with all the gold and silver, Nevada really shines worldwide from the “Sin City” lights in Las Vegas. The largest and most populated area in Nevada is the Las Vegas metropolitan area, which lies in Clark County, where approximately two-thirds of Nevadans reside. The capital of Nevada is Carson City, named after famous mountaineer Kit Carson. Tourism to Las Vegas, national parks and trails in Northern and Southern Nevada, mining, agricultural output and ranching all aid in Nevada’s improving economy.
