Situated between the Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Nevada in the western U.S., Nevada ranks seventh in size among the 50 states. Nevada is bordered on the north by Oregon and Idaho, on the east by Utah and Arizona, and on the south and west by California. Nevada’s capital city is Carson City and its largest city is Las Vegas. Las Vegas is the gambling capital of America.
The name Nevada is derived from the Spanish word that means snowcapped. Because of the state's abundant growth of wild sage, the state is known as the "Sagebrush State." Nevada is also called the "Battle Born State" because it became a state in 1864, during the Civil War, as the 36th state. Nevada is also known as the Silver State due to a large amount of silver it hosts within its borders. Because many people and companies came here in the 19th century for the silver and there are mines all around the state extracting it.
Nevada has a varied landscape. It’s impossible to go anywhere in Nevada without seeing mountains. Nevada is home to more mountain ranges than any other U.S. state, with approximately 315 named mountain ranges. In these ranges are 43 named peaks exceeding 10.000 feet in elevation. Its highest peak is 13.145 feet at Boundary Peak. Nevada has more than 44000 acres of manmade reservoirs, 2760 miles of streams, 23 designated wilderness areas, and 8.6 million acres of national forest.
Nevada has the population of about 2,5 million people. But it’s interesting that more than 78% of the population lives in Reno, Carson City, and Las Vegas. By dismissing these cities, Nevada’s total population would be only around 200.000. Nevada has one of the lowest population densities in America with only 21 people per square mile. Although the 7th largest state, Nevada has a total of only 128 cities and towns. Out of 128, only 39 have the population greater than 1000.
