Moving to Nevada

Written by Alyssa Howard,

Nevada's two specialties are gambling and gold (it's the largest producer of the material in the U.S.). The state boasts of its short winters that provide a perfect climate to still experience a variety of activities besides hitting the casinos characteristic of Las Vegas. Even during the winter, you can enjoy Nevada's world-renowned golf courses, mountain trails, ski resorts and the Hoover Dam.
