LAKE TAHOE / TRUCKEE TOUR
Friday, October 26
Named “America’s Best Lake” by USA Today, Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America. It’s also known as the most photographed lake in the country, and you’ll soon find out why. It’s deep and wide, bluer than blue, and surrounded by the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains. We will be taking in all the scenery on a guided bus tour around the northern section of the lake. Multiple stops will be made along the way to fully take in the beauty. After learning about the history and culture of Lake Tahoe, depart for Truckee, California. On the way, pass by Squaw Valley and see the Donner Memorial which pays tribute to the group of pioneers who set sights on California via wagon train back in the 1840s. Enjoy time on your own in historic downtown Truckee, dubbed “a foodie’s haven.” There are lots of eating establishments including ice cream, pizza, and more. Save a little time for shopping too!

CARSON CITY / VIRGINIA CITY
Saturday, October 27
Begin a tour of Carson City, Nevada’s state capital, and Virginia City, a thriving ghost town. In Carson City, drive by some of its historic homes and buildings, before stopping at the Nevada State Museum. This museum focuses on the rich natural and cultural heritage of the "Silver State." You’ll learn about the mining industry, local wildlife, the Carson City Mint and more! Virginia City is the gaudiest, headiest boomtown of the Old West and where Mark Twain cut his literary teeth. Miraculously, the town looks much the same as it did in the 1860’s, from the wobbly saloons built on stilts to the well-trodden boardwalks of the main street. See old mansions, quaint shops, churches, and museums. Hear about the history of this town that tamed the Wild West, its booming population, and exciting reputation. Lunch is on your own at one of several local restaurants.

Named for the slain Union general, Jesse L. Reno, Downtown Reno sits in what is informally known as the Truckee Meadows.

Your guide will share the secrets of the “Biggest Little City in the World.” Hear tales about Reno’s famous eccentrics and drive by a few of the area’s unique homes. See the $40 million outdoor stadium in the heart of downtown, home to the Reno Aces, northern Nevada’s first-ever Triple-A baseball team.Spend time at the National Automobile Museum, a tribute to Bill Harrah. Discover a century of automobiles: more than 200 antique, vintage, classic, special interest and one-of-a-kind wonders.
