A publication from the state highway department, Nevada Highways and Parks first hit newsstands in January 1936. Now a division of the Nevada Commission on Tourism, the rechristened Nevada Magazine looks beyond roads and parks to highlight the state's rich history and current cultural offerings. Published six times a year, each 80-page issue guides readers through tasty dining and drinking options and acquaints them with notable Nevadans and the animals that make up the state's diverse wildlife. In print and online, Nevada Magazine also keeps readers abreast of the Silver State's latest events and shows, from upcoming sporting contests to the newest art exhibits.

More than just its moniker Sin City, Las Vegas is a town filled with some of the world's best performers. After graduating from a prestigious music conservatory, entertainers Coren and Ren Zai dedicated their lives to show business, both as performers and instructors of some of the area's brightest talents. A prolific musician, Coren has opened for several blues legends and appeared in Vegas performances such as The Frankie & Sherry Show, a tribute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. Of her 20 years as vocal coach, 14 of them were spent as a certified level-4 teacher of the the speech-level singing method used by more than 120 Grammy winners. Ren Zai teaches the technique of acting naturally and intuitively, similar to the teachings of Constantin Stanislavski and Stella Adler. A self-described "actor, playwright, composer, arranger, director, and acting coach," Ren is also a busy filmmaker and producer, founding Dreamweavers Professional Performing Arts to both develop his own work and cultivate the exceptional talent around him. He is also the originator of the "Natural Actor Program for Singers, Dancers, and Actors."
