The Perfect Fall Road Trip in Nevada!

There may not be a better time of year to take a road trip than in the fall. Road trips are a great way to explore and get to know a state a little bit better. When you think of Nevada, don’t just picture Las Vegas. From great coffee shops to fuel up to magnificent scenic byways, here’s the perfect fall road trip in Nevada. 

Star Peak

Star Peak is often referred to as one of Nevada’s hidden gems. The state has an endless number of mountains, but Star Peak’s vista views are second to none. Consider taking the easy walking route for better views before hopping back in the car and heading out for lunch.

Black Rock Grill, Lovelock, NV

It wouldn’t be a true Nevada trip without at least one stop at a casino. Drive 40 minutes from Star Peak to nearby Lovelock and head into the C Punch Inn and Casino for lunch at the house restaurant, the Black Rock Grill. They have reasonably priced American fare. 

Humboldt State Wildlife Management Area

Now that you’ve recovered your energy from lunch, it’s time to put those extra calories to use. Head south to the Humboldt State Wildlife Management Area. The area has had Native American tribes since 2000 B.C. and is the site of numerous artifact findings. Take a leisurely hike around the area to see diverse wildlife and several lakes.

After conquering the corn maze, why not head into town to unwind with a cold beer? Boomer’s, in Fallon, Nevada, offers pizza, wings, live music, and cold drinks. Eat and drink like a local while you relax from a long day.
