We woke up early and left Tonopah for South Lake Tahoe on Tuesday morning June 30th… On our way out of town, we stopped for some photos at the Clown Hotel. The drive starts to get interesting around Walker Lake, then again as you near Lake Tahoe on the Nevada 207 West. Other than that expect a rather desolate drive. As we drove into Tahoe, climbing the massive winding highway, we were looking for something to eat before we checked into Harrah’s at 3 pm. We found the perfect place near the beach named Jimmy’s Restaurant which is nestled at the base of the Landing Tahoe Resort and Spa. We ordered fish tacos with Australian Sea Bass and the Caesar salad with blackened shrimp that were absolutely out of this world. I would go back just for the shrimp they were that good. After our meal we checked into Harrah’s and we were happy to see all the precautions the hotel was taking to address Covid 19. Everyone was required to wear masks, there were temperature checks upon arrival, and some amenities were closed like the valet, room service, and housekeeping during the stay. The staff took good care of us and got us a room on the 11th floor with amazing views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding forest. The hotel is a solid 3.5 and could use some additional upgrades, but overall it was a good choice for our stay… Harrah’s Lake Tahoe is located right on the Nevada/California state line and the address is 15 US-50, Stateline, NV 89449. To be continued.
After winning a contest to visit the Tesla Gigafactory, I found myself in Reno, NV with a few hours to kill. I had never been to Lake Tahoe, and I had just enough bandwidth to drive there and back before the tour began. The next thing I knew I was having breakfast, snapping some amazing photos of the lake and the beautiful landscape that surrounded this majestic work of God. I also saw an amazing golf course which I can’t wait to go back and play. Please take a look at my photos below.
