Travel Nevada brings Cowboy Country to Calgary

Travel Nevada brings Cowboy Country to Calgary

TravelNevada and a contingent of representatives brought the highlights of their state to a group of 50 agents in Calgary at the Hotel Blackfoot on Mar. 6, 2018 to encourage travellers to explore Nevada beyond Las Vegas.


Yennifer Diaz, international sales & public relations specialist gave a quick overall presentation highlighting all the lesser-known experiences in Nevada, perfect for a road trip through the area.


“It is a pleasure for TravelNevada to be in Calgary," Diaz said. "While the state of Nevada is fortunate to have a world renown destination like Las Vegas, we feel that it is important to go beyond the strip and showcase a little more of what the rest of Nevada has to offer. Not only do we have the entertainment capital of the world with the glitz of the Las Vegas strip, but we also have amazing state and national parks, historic mining towns, expansive wilderness areas and the outdoor playground adventure of Reno and Lake Tahoe.”


In the north, Cowboy Country region is named for the cowboys who still work the ranches in the area. The Reno Tahoe area provides five destinations within an hour's drive including Carson City, the state capital, Carson Valley, Lake Tahoe, Reno and Virginia City. The Pony Express and the Silver Trails round up the other regions of Nevada each with their own unique experiences for guests.

The Peppermill Reno and the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Reno offer Four Diamond Award experiences for guests to enjoy luxurious spa experiences including a unique geothermal spa at the Peppermill Reno.


As the seventh largest state in the United States, the area is ripe for road trips to explore the land in its wide open terrain and drive the Loneliest Road in America.
