From a bird's eye perspective, the town of Jean located near the Nevada-California state line, looks like the spread of the two millennia old Nazca Lines, which comprises of long linear grooves running across artificially flattened mountain tops and crisscrossing more than 15,000 geometric and animalistic figures. And similar to its Peruvian counterpart, the Nevadan region could quite probably have and still be receiving extra-terrestrial visitations, what with the iconic Area 51 located some 100 odd miles north-northwest of it. However, the most common sights and sounds along the highway and road lanes running through Jean are those of gambling crazed tourists coming from California down south and heading to Sin City via Interstate 15. Yet before the hedonistic hordes head for Las Vegas, the town of Jean makes for a sizzling appetizer to the wild and top-heavy entertainment of the "admonished land". Book some Jean NV tickets
for tenderizing those money wads and credit cards.

Jean Tickets Information
Tracing its heritage to the onset of the twentieth century and founded as Goodsprings Junction, Jean NV was named so by the George Arthur Fayle, the then postmaster, after his wife. One of the first centers for social activity was the Pioneer Saloon that is still standing. This was the same place that Clark Gable was dunking a beer when his wife died in plane crash in the same region, Clark County. Jean, NV initially experienced economic growth due to the activities of the Yellow Pine Mining Company Railroad that connected the town with the rest of the state. However, as the Depression Era set in, the railroad bowed out to highway 91, the present day I-15.
The first wave of gambling activity washed over Jean NV after the construction of Pop's Oasis in 1947. This was a motel, gas station, store and casino all rolled into one and was owned and operated by Peter A. "Pop" Simon and was the hub of tourist activity for more than four decades, until the Nevada Landing Hotel and Casino along with its sister complex Gold Strike Hotel and Gambling Hall opened in 1989 and 1990 respectively. Though the former venue closed after 18 years of operation, the latter is still striking it rich. Owned by MGM Resorts International, it lures passer-bys with up to 811 rooms and more than 400 slot machines, as well as the Leroy's Sport Book for all their sport betting needs.
Visitors to Jean, NV, especially those that have skydiving listed on their "bucket lists," can finally check it off by availing the facilities at the Jean Sport Aviation Center that operates out of the resident airport and has two airstrips at its disposal.
