Regional drivers with Truline get to cover a lot of ground in a short period of time. Most of our drivers are home with their families every night and get to enjoy the benefits of a competitive wage with the flexibility of working close to home.
An unexpected upside of driving for Truline is the incredible sights you might see in our areas of service across the United States. We’ll cover them all in this series, including Utah, California, Colorado, Arizona, Texas, Arkansas, and Georgia. But we’re going to start with Nevada, the home of our headquarters.
Simply put, Nevada is a beautiful state. Not only do we have access to the bustle and life of Las Vegas, but there are plenty of views and landmarks that our drivers get to witness every day as they drive along major highways such as the I-15, I-80 and more.
The I-15 connects Las Vegas to the rest of Nevada, and it’s the main highway that links Nevada to California. It sees heavy traffic during the summer months as people flock to Las Vegas for shows and other entertainment events. It’s also used heavily by vacationers who drive to Lake Tahoe and other Nevada attractions. While driving on the I-15 can be stressful at times, the scenery along this route is beautiful. You can see Rocky Mountains, desert landscapes and palm trees along this passage.
The I-80 highway is a major route between Southern California and Northern Nevada and serves as an important link between Las Vegas and Reno, as well as other cities in Nevada. It also serves as a major route for truck traffic between California and Nevada.
No matter what local route you’re running, as a regional truck driver for Truline, chances are you’ll get a first-hand view of some of the state’s most gorgeous sights! Here are a couple of our favorites.
From I-15, you can’t miss the Hoover Dam. A beautiful sight to see on any trip through Nevada, this massive dam and its surrounding water provides irrigation for farmers in the area and creates Lake Mead, a popular tourist destination. Sitting at 726 feet and more than twice as tall as Niagara Falls, it’s easy to see why the Hoover Dam is such an impressive sight.
Moapa Peak and the Moapa Valley, another prominent landmark along I-15, is also a potential view for Truline truck drivers. This is where you’ll find the Moapa Salt flats, a large salt flat that attracts migratory birds throughout the year. In addition to being a natural wonderland with numerous hiking trails, it’s also a great place to watch for wildlife in the area.
The picturesque Red Rock Canyon lies in the rugged, remote part of Nevada and is easily one of the top locations to visit if you want to get a true taste of the Southwest. While it may not be as well-known as other destinations in the region, it’s still a must-see for those driving by on route 159. It’s home to some of the most impressive geology in all of the Southwest, including one of the largest concentrations of hoodoos in the world.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg for Nevada alone, not to mention the rest of our service areas. Stay tuned for more in this series covering sights and sites nationwide.
