Whether you're looking for an amazing nightlife or a peaceful retreat, Nevada is the state for you. Mountains, deserts, high plateaus, and wild rivers make Nevada an obvious choice for students who love the great outdoors. But Nevada's thrilling indoor entertainment scene is beyond compare, whether you're in Las Vegas, Reno, or Lake Tahoe.
