During this Travel Nevada Press Trip, I learned quite a number of interesting facts and information about Lake Tahoe and the state of Nevada. Of course, by physically being there in person adds a whole new experience and memories.

The most memorable fun fact for me is the slogan used by Travel Nevada, “Don’t Fence Me In”. So, I was curious, what exactly does this mean? Well, Travel Nevada wants everyone to be creative, to be open minded, to think outside the box. Don’t set boundaries, don’t let others tell you how you should live your life. Instead, you should be the one to decide how you should and want to spend your life. Be free, go explore, go see what the state of Nevada has to offer. Believe me, Nevada is a huge state! Every part of the Nevada is different, it’s not just about Las Vegas, there is so much more to explore, the natural landscape and the outdoor activities. So, don’t let anyone to fence you in a corner. Break the fence, be free and explore Nevada!

This slogan is powerful to me. It resonates to me about being free and open minded. This slogan possibly the most important piece of INFO that I took with me during the entire press trip and carry on when I am back in Toronto, Canada, which is my home!
