West Wendover Overview
West Wendover, Nevada lies on the very eastern border of Nevada on I-80 and has close ties to Wendover, Utah. Since both towns share a border, West Wendover is in Mountain Time while the rest of Nevada is in Pacific Time. The elevation of West Wendover is approximately 4400 ft above sea level.
This gambling community sits right on the Nevada/Utah border and thus the first chance to gamble headed west out of Utah. Much of the town is supported by the 5 full service casinos in town: the Red Garter, Wendover Nugget, Rainbow, Peppermill, and Montego Bay. Each of the these casinos have at least one restaurant and a hotel. The casinos provide revenue for the city and jobs for the locals. Weekends often bring special events to town through races at nearby Bonneville Salt Flats, concerts, car shows and charity events.
