Optional Sunday 9 am - 4 pm tour of Lake Tahoe and the beautiful surrounding area.Tour (includes box lunch) departs Reno and travels up Mt. Rose as the local guide narrates and points out interesting sights along the way. There will be shorts stops along the shore of Lake Tahoe to enjoy taking pictures and looking at the scenery. After leaving the shores of Lake Tahoe, the tour continues over Spooner Summit and down the mountain to Nevada's State Capital, Carson City. This historic town is known for its unique capital building and mint. Then we will be off to discover Virginia City to explore the past! Established in 1859, Virginia City became the richest mining town in the world. San Francisco was built from the mines of the Comstock and the Civil War was partially financed from the gold and silver discovered beneath the city. Today's Virginia City is remarkably the same as it was during its heyday with wooden sidewalks, restored mansions, and “Old West” saloons. Mark Twain began his illustrious writing career at Virginia City's own "Territorial Enterprise." There are several little museums, shops, mansions, and churches in this richly historic town. It is a great place to have your box lunch, take a trolley ride or mine tour, or do some shopping.
