內華達這個名字源自於一個西班牙字,為「雪衣」之意(snow clad),出自內華達山脈被雪覆蓋的山峰。1859年時,境內所發現的康斯脫克銀礦,藏有大量的銀礦,因而帶來了大批的財富追尋者。之後不久的1864年,內華達就加入聯邦,成為美國第36州。內華達位於山區,內有半乾旱氣候的草原及沙漠,並且是美國境內最乾旱的一州。就像沙漠中的綠洲一般,內華達的兩個主要城市:拉斯維加斯及雷諾吸引了來自全球各地、希望能在當地賭場幸運致富的財富追尋者。內華達州的首府是卡森城(Carson City),而它的州花則是山艾。


Nevada's name comes from the Spanish word meaning "snow clad"--a reference to the snow-covered peaks of the Sierra Nevada. The discovery of the Comstock Lode, a massive deposit of silver, in 1859 brought many fortune seekers. Statehood followed shortly afterwards in 1864, when Nevada was admitted as the 36st state. Nevada is in a mountain region that includes semiarid grasslands and sandy deserts, and is the most arid (dry) state in the nation. Like oases in the desert, Nevada's two main cities--Las Vegas and Reno--attract fortune seekers from around the world hoping to strike it rich in the many casinos located there. The capital is Carson City, and the state flower is the sagebrush.
