The entire state of Nevada is known as Indian Territory, and no wonder. Nevada’s Indian Territory is rich and robust in Western heritage representing 32 active American Indian communities throughout the state. Home to four major American Indian tribes — the Washoe, Northern Paiute, Southern Paiute and Western Shoshone — who all feel a deep connection to the environment and all its gifts, Nevada’s tribes sustained their ethnic identity longer than in other areas because it took longer for Euro-Americans to settle there.

Tourism in Nevada means a thriving economy

It means employing 487,500 Nevadans, nearly 30 percent of Nevada’s workforce, offering jobs at all levels of professional growth as well as entrepreneurial opportunities and jobs for retirees.

It means hosting more than 55 million travelers annually who spend an increasing amount of money, reaching a total of $64.4 billion in 2015.

TravelNevada serves as Nevada’s chief marketing entity. TravelNevada has achieved proven results in driving tourism throughout Nevada. Providing a series of strategic programs and activities to support the efforts as well as those undertaken by in-state partners, the state has realized increased traveler visits year-over-year through rural grant programs, aggressive marketing and public relations campaigns, comprehensive and interactive social media campaigns and through the development of tools and resources design to attract both domestic and international visitors.

Together we can work to ensure Tourism Means More and continues to.
