Yosemite and the Gold Rush

Half DomeDay 1 – Reno
Arrive in Reno, gateway to the Golden West where silver kings and gold rush seekers settled in days long ago. Now the seat of the capitol of Nevada, Reno is known for gambling in the “biggest little city in the world.” Settle into your hotel this evening and enjoy a Welcome Dinner at the beautiful Roxy Restaurant with your travel companions.    

Dinner

Day 2 – Virginia City, Carson City and Lake Tahoe
Following your included breakfast, board your trusty coach for a visit to Virginia City. In the 1870’s, it was the home to 100 saloons, the only elevator between Chicago and San Francisco, and the Comstock Lode! The 45 minute ride is extremely scenic as the coach winds through switchbacks and mountain hillsides. It looks much as it did 150 years ago when silver was king. After time to explore, continue to Carson City, the capital of Nevada with its’ silver domed capital building, brilliant in the sunshine and still in use today. The afternoon finds you traveling to South Lake Tahoe for a two night stay.

So named the “big water” by the Washoe Indians, it is now the sight of skiing resorts, summer fishing and sightseeing the historic mansions on the lakeshore. Enjoy a cruise on this beautiful lake and ride a gondola to the top of Heavenly Valley. An exciting day to be sure. Lunch is included today as you visit this famous area.
