The state of Nevada has a great deal going for it, from the abundant sunshine and consistent warm temperatures to the happy people and growing economy. From the casinos that line the Las Vegas strip to the wide open desert with its unparalleled views of the night sky, the Silver State has something to offer everyone.
In fact, the only thing better than living in the state of Nevada is living in the state of Nevada with some extra cash in your wallet. If you need extra money, you might be tempted to head to the casino, but there is a surer and less risky way to find some loot.
