Jean NV – Terrible’s Hotel & Casino Closed

Millions of people drive every year between California and the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip. Over the years a few casinos have popped up between the Nevada border and Vegas, however they have had varying degrees of success. In the late 1980’s a couple of casinos were opened in Jean, NV (about 15 miles from Vegas), but what is left is sort of sad.

Jean, NV Tour – Closed Casino & Largest Chevron in the World

Jean, NV has an interesting history. Before the Great Recession it was to be home to the new Vegas airport, housed two bustling casinos and was busy. Today one of the casinos is long gone and the other sits closed, while a prison and the world’s largest Chevron sit nearby.

While times may have been better, good times are seemingly ahead for Jean and what is there now is interesting to see. In this video we’ll take a look at the very popular Seven Magic Mountains art installation, the closed Terrible’s casino, the site and history of the now defunct Nevada Landing casino and we’ll tour the largest Chevron in the world with 96 pumps! Not bad for a tiny town in the middle of the desert.

Terrible’s Hotel & Casino Closed – Bottom Line

While Jean is a place many know from simply driving by and never stopping, for many it has been a place to get gas, food and a little fun. Today things are quiet with the casino closed, however with news of a potential new development and the hopeful reopening of the casino I think better days may be ahead.

  1. Have been visiting my friend who moved to Vegas from CT and found this place driving back from San Diego. Always enjoyed my time. Enjoyed the food in the steakhouse and got a kick out of the classic car exhibit with the batmobile. Hope it gets to open back up. Great looking at the video. Will have to stop at the Art exhibit next time out there. Never drove out on the road to see it. Planning to visit in July this year.

  2. Jean Nevada use to be the first point of civilization when I lived in Sandy Valley which is another 20 minutes down the road. It was great to get out of town and go to the restaurants and gamble. You’re video of Jean summarizes the hopes and dreams of a small town. Well done!
