No matter where you stay in Lake Tahoe, you really should take a moment to look at the lake.
When we visited, a light snow replaced the heavy dump from the previous night. Nevertheless, we headed down to famed Gar Woods to dine by the water.
The fare here is comfort food at its best. Deviled eggs, fried zucchini and French onion soup were just some of the non-diet items we enjoyed.
We continued on to Truckee for a historic tour which includes a stop at the Old Jail Museum, one of only a few surviving 19th century jailhouses of its kind in the West. Dinner at Moody’s is divine. Don’t skip the Moody’s Salmon Creek Pork Chop and Whoopie Pie.
