City of the Year – 2017


2017 Nevada Must See-Must Do City of the Year - Black Rock City

The ‘Official Nevada State Fossil’ emerges from the playa dust

Black Rock City — Smaller than Sparks, bigger than Carson City, it’s the tenth largest city in Nevada* for one week of the year, the week of Burning Man that ends on Labor Day Weekend. The Man is designed and built for the occasion as free-spirited people arrive from around the world in cars and RVs containing everything needful: there’s nothing to buy here but coffee and ice. Once settled, it is a dream made real: everyone fantastic, everything an astonishment. And then the Man burns and the city vanishes utterly for another year. Splendid!
*Fourth largest outside the Las Vegas Valley
