West Wendover/USA

Introducing West Wendover

If you just can't make it to Salt Lake City tonight, stop in West Wendover, where ginormous casino hotels with 24-hour restaurants line Wendover Blvd. Over on the Utah side, Historic Wendover Airfield is a top-secret WWII-era USAF base, where the Enola Gay crew trained for dropping the atomic bomb on Japan. The Bonneville Speed Museum documents attempts to set land speed records on the nearby Bonneville Salt Flats, where 'Speed Week' time trials in the third full week of August draw huge crowds every year.
