Nevada is known to have many snow-covered mountain peaks in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The name Nevada even comes from a Spanish word that means "snow clad." In 1859, people began to inhabit the land in search of silver that was part of the discovery of the Comstock Lode. Soon after, Nevada became the 36th state of the Union in 1864. Nevada's geography is quite diverse with it being in a mountain region but also having grasslands and deserts. It is the most dry, or arid, state in the United States. The sagebrush is the state flower and the capital city is Carson City.
Just like the fortune seekers of the earlier days, many people come to Nevada to strike it rich, or at least try to. Las Vegas and Reno are the two most popular cities in Nevada and are huge tourist attractions with their many casinos and resorts. Even if you don't like to gamble, there is plenty to do. Many people like to catch the many shows that the casinos and resorts host such as the Cirque du Soleil and concerts by singers such as Celine Dion and of course, Elvis impersonators.
