I Drove to “Stateline” at the “State Line”


Anyone who has ever entered Nevada by car/truck/similar vehicle knows that casinos await about one foot inside the state line (an exception is entering off Highway 395, where the Topaz Lodge casino is no more than a quarter-mile inside, and you can see it up the hill.

I thought about this during my two trips into Nevada in August, to Lake Tahoe in the middle of the month and to Las Vegas two weeks later. As we drove Interstate 15 to the state line and drove down the hill where you can see Buffalo Bill’s, Primm Valley Resort and Whiskey Pete’s eight miles away, it dawned on me that there could be confusion between state line and Stateline.

People often refer to the state line when they’re crossing into a new state. But if you’re traveling Highway 50 from California to Lake Tahoe, the moment you cross the state line into Nevada, you’re in Stateline.

That’s Stateline, NV 89449.

Until next time! Use the right words!
