Most people would advise spending more than just one day in Lake Tahoe California but alas, we are not most people. You see, we were camping at Thousand Trails Snowflower and Lake Tahoe was only 45 minutes away. This should seem like nothing to people who live in a house on wheels but to us, that is an hour and a half sitting in a car that could be spent outside. So we quickly made the decision to only drive into North Lake Tahoe once during our 5 day stint in the area. I know some of you are already thinking we’re crazy…hang in there, we do have our reasons.
Lot's of people (I used to be one of them) think Nevada is just one endless desert with not much to do other than gamble. We have found it to be quite the contrary! There are some great historic, haunted and animated towns to explore. Virginia City is one of Nevada's small towns you don't want to miss.
