• Wendover/ West Wendover - West Wendover, Nevada

      Roadtrip Attraction
      When people talk about Wendover, chances are they really mean West Wendover. The twin towns sit on the border of Utah and Nevada, and it is West Wendover that has become a high-profile tourist draw with several top-notch hotel casino properties. But don't overlook the Historic Wendover Airfield with its collection of vintage aircraft. You may recognize the surrounding terrain from its use in several Hollywood films, including the blockbuster Independence Day. The West Wendover Welcome Center has more information about the films that have used the community as a shooting location.
