A vast state dominated by diverse, dramatic landscapes, Nevada is difficult to define. On the one hand, you have much of the population clustered in the southwest corner in the glitzy, glamorous and sprawling city of Las Vegas. On the other hand, you find untouched wilderness – alpine forests, high deserts and spectacular red rocks – that make you feel worlds away from civilization.
We asked USA TODAY 10Best readers to vote for their favorite state attractions, and the results are in.
The top 10 winners in the category Best Nevada Attraction are as follows:
- Nevada Museum of Art - Reno
- The Neon Museum - Las Vegas
- Lake Tahoe

A panel of experts partnered with 10Best editors to picked the initial 20 nominees, and the top 10 winners were determined by popular vote. Experts Laura Lawson Visconti, Terrisa Meeks and Christina Nellemann were chosen based on their knowledge and experience of travel in the state.
Congratulations to all these winning attractions!License the 10Best Readers' Choice Award Logo
