Dave's Lake Tahoe & Beach Boys Trip

July 13-15, 2012

Friday 13th

After work flew from San Jose on American through LA.
#3052 LAX 6pm to Reno


Stayed in Reno at the Eldorado Hotel Casino for $67.
Free hotel shuttle bus.




View from my room.








Love this pic! RENO 911
They actually made an arrest, then were kind enough to take this picture with me.


Back at the casino I stopped at the Asian restaurant and got some won ton soup.

Then went to take a nap, meant to head back out but ended up in bed for the night unfortunately.

Saturday 14th

Took the shuttle back to the airport and picked up an Avis rental car for the drive south to the south shore and California.


Logan Shoal's Vista Point

Hotel wasn't ready for check in, so drove down the street to Macduff's Public House.

Had some of the best mac'n'cheese and a half order of excellent fish'n'chips, just like in Bermuda.

Made it to the 1:30 cruise of the Tahoe Queen, which was walking distance from my hotel.






You can see the casinos across the way.




Emerald Bay








Stayed at the Alder Inn for $323.
Rated #1 of 67.


After a stop to get into my room, drove up to the beaches on the northeast shore.

Sand Harbor
















Chimney Beach

Pretty decent walk to get down there and back up.




















Walked down to the main road to eat dinner at the Riva Grill.


The best deviled eggs I've ever had. Also got a French Onion soup.

Sitting at the bar lots of restaurant staff folks came around and were all going out drinking at one of the casinos afterwards. They were all young, in shape, friendly, and living the lifestyle. I would find that Tahoe generally has the hottest waitresses of any town I have been in.
