Fun facts about Nevada

The Vegas strip is an exciting place to be and your nanny will want to soak it all in. From all-you-can-eat buffets to entertainment productions to live music to gambling gambling gambling, Vegas is a city that never sleeps. Some fun facts about Vegas: Wayne Newton’s home there was used for the film “Vegas Vacation” and The 1959 Las Vegas Follies Bergere at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino is the longest running show. But there’s more to Nevada than just Vegas. There’s the famous Mojave Desert and Colorado River Canyon. Nevada is called the “Silver State” because of its large silver mine industries. The Nevada State Capitol in Carson City, 135 years old, is one of the smallest state capitals in the country. Your nanny will certainly learn who Howard Hughes was. Hughes bought a lot of Nevada property before he died in 1976, including the Castaways, Desert Inn, Frontier, Landmark, Sands, Silver Slipper, and Harold's Club. Part of the Hughes legend was recounted in Jonathan Demme's "Melvin and Howard." Hollywood is often inspired by Nevada. Misfits Flats off Highway 50 near Stagecoach takes its name from the John Huston film. In fact, Huston used the privately owned area to film a complicated wild horse round-up with Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Montgomery Clift and Eli Wallach. And, finally, your nanny will be amused to discover that inside the Cal-Neva building at Lake Tahoe’s Crystal Bay, it is possible to stand in both Nevada and California!
