About Cal Nev Ari, Nevada
Cal-Nev-Ari is a census-designated place in Clark County, Nevada, United States, near the state's southernmost point. As of the 2010 census, the town had a population of 244. The town's name is a syllabic abbreviation of California, Nevada, and Arizona.Cal-Nev-Ari was created in the mid 1960s by Nancy and Slim Kidwell, who acquired a 640-acre (2.6 km2) section of land from the U. S. government and commenced development of an airport-based community. In addition to the FAA-designated Kidwell Airport, the community has grown over the years to include a casino, motel, RV and mobile home parks, convenience market, and over 100 residential lots.A consequence of the September 11th terrorist attacks is that trucks and motorhomes are no longer allowed to pass over Hoover Dam. As a result, they have now been routed down U.S. Route 95 and through Cal-Nev-Ari in order to get to Arizona.
