Visitors to Wendover, Nevada, can gamble, go golfing, explore the Bonneville Salt Flats and enjoy a concert. There are also plenty of food and drink options from fine dining at Romanza Ristorante Italiana to numerous bars both inside and outside the casinos.
One of the biggest draws in Wendover is the gambling. Casinos line both sides of Wendover Boulevard, five of which are hotel casinos, providing rooms for sleeping and in-house restaurants for breaks between games of blackjack, roulette and poker. The Peppermill Concert Hall hosts a myriad of performers from country legends to rock and jazz bands. Even comedians headline at the hall.
However, Wendover offers other attractions for the risk-adverse such as the 72-par Toana Vista Golf Course. Appropriate for all skill levels, the course has water hazards, rocky terrain, putting greens and driving ranges.
Visitors can enjoy other outdoor activities such as birding and exploring the Bonneville Salt Flats. Wendover hosts 18 species of raptors that pass through on their migration routes, making for a total of about 25,000 birds. The Bonneville Salt Flats is where professional racers practice, speeding up to hundreds of miles per hour. The area itself is geologic wonder, so flat that visitors can actually see the Earth curving at the horizon.
