The Most Instagrammable Spots In Nevada

The Most Instagrammable Spots In Nevada

Nevada has heaps of mountains, canyons and scenic lakes, so before you head to the bright lights of Las Vegas, explore the outdoors. Drive along U.S. Highway 50 (known as the Loneliest Road in America) to pass over mountain ranges and stop off for stargazing in Tonopah, known for having some of the darkest night skies in the USA.

As it’s such a beautiful state, we wanted to nail down the 7 best places to get an Instagram shot for that perfect travel photo. Get the camera out for these photogenic places…

Nevada Instagram Spots

1. Hoover Dam

The Hoover Dam is a 700-hundred-foot-tall, concrete arch-gravity dam and is a modern marvel of the world. Visit and get ready for your jaw to drop at the sheer size of it.

2. Welcome To Las Vegas Sign

Have you even been to Las Vegas if you don’t have an Instagram photo with this sign? It’s a classic. Just be aware that it gets super busy during the day, so go as early as you can if you want to spend some time taking pics.

5. Red Rock Canyon

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area has awe-inspiring views that you wouldn’t expect to see near a major metropolitan city. In contrast to the bright lights and hype of the Strip, Red Rock is a peaceful place of desert beauty.
