Nevada is a destination of unequaled beauty that extends from the exciting nightlife of the Las Vegas strip to the crystal blue waters of Lake Tahoe. All four seasons can be found in Nevada, which is reflected in the wide range of architectural styles seen within homes across the state. Rental home offerings range from rustic mountain cabins to larger Spanish-style homes and estate-sized mansions.
The regions within Nevada are diverse and offer a unique variety of lifestyles. The majority of the state's population is located within the southern and western areas of the state in major metropolitan areas and in the nearby suburban communities. The Great Basin region encompasses more than half of the state, and Reno and Carson City are situated here. This region is considered a "cold desert" as winters can be cold and snowy. Las Vegas is located in the Mojave Desert, where there is very little rainfall, although Lake Mead is located here and is the largest water source for the region. Half of the state's population resides in the Mojave Desert. The Columbia Plateau region of Nevada receives more rain than other areas in the state, and the Sierra Nevada region, located in the western part of the state, offers many outdoor activities as it contains mountains and lakes.
Nevada's Las Vegas strip, which is known as the entertainment capital of the world, is a popular attraction for tourists and residents alike who want to indulge in gambling and other nightlife activities such as fine dining at local restaurants. Those who prefer the rugged outdoors can head out of the city lights and into the nearby mountains to go hiking or fishing in nearby lakes. Beautiful Lake Tahoe, which is located just south of Reno in the western region of Nevada, was the location of the 1960 Olympics. The Lake Tahoe area offers an abundance of enjoyable activities that include boating and fishing plus an array of shops, art galleries, museums, and fine dining.
