10 Ghost Towns, Brothels, and Derelict Places in Nevada

Nevada is known for Las Vegas, but there’s so much more to explore in the state. Its wide-open spaces were a big part of Wild West history. Boomtowns sprung up around the silver mining industry and then died. Other spots flourished temporarily around gold, borax, and even coal mining. Mormon settlers came and went. The US Army selected Nevada as a nuclear testing site because it was so sparsely inhabited. And the legalization of brothels brought a more recent business boom that only lasted a few years. Urban Ghosts has a vacation recommendation for urban explorers with this mini-tour of abandoned Nevada, and a virtual tour for the rest of us.
