July – August 2018
The Best of Nevada 2018 is here! Our readers have spoken and we’ve counted the ballots. We switched up the categories, and we’ve got some new winners for you starting on page 36. A new favorite of ours is this issue’s Cravings story—The Angry Butcher. Read about this delicious and innovative steakhouse on page 56.
A recent visit to Tonopah revealed too many good stories to resist, so we start with the Tonopah Mining Park on page 28; if you haven’t experienced this living history adventure, summer is the perfect time. The town of Tonopah is experiencing a revitalization of sorts right now, as new blood is bringing fresh ideas and a rebirth to some of the town’s oldest establishments. Check it out on page 64.
And of course we have a feature on Nevada’s railroads; this time how the railroad turned a swamp into the city of Sparks. The city’s history is inextricably linked with Nevada’s railway past. Discover how on page 72.
