Nevada Shipping FAQs

What Are Nevada's Major Cities And Roadways?

Surprisingly, Nevada is the 7th largest state in the country by square miles. Nevada is almost 500 miles long and more than 420 miles wide. The state operates more than 87,000 miles of roadway, a relatively small amount given the expanse of the state. That’s because the federal government owns nearly 80% of the land in Nevada. The state’s two interstate highways account for more than 600 miles of roadway in Nevada. In the northern portion of the state, I-80 travels east/west between California and Utah. In the southeaster corner of Nevada, I-16 services Las Vegas as it links California to Arizona.

Nevada has the 32nd largest state population in the country. Las Vegas, which has nearly 600,000 people, is more than twice as large as any other city in the state.  Mesquite, a town on the Arizona border, was the fastest growing small city in Nevada in 2017. The 10 largest cities in Nevada are:
