When you visit the North Tahoe area, be sure to plan a visit to historic downtown Truckee with its quaint shops and sidewalk cafe restaurants. For visitor information and a glimpse into Truckee's colorful history, plan a visit to the Truckee-Donner Chamber of Commerce, the old historic Truckee Jail and the Truckee Railroad Museum. For adventure, take a scenic train ride on Amtrak's California Zephyr west or east from the Truckee station. Truckee summer events include a Farmer's Market, music concerts at Regional Park on Wednesday evenings and Truckee Thursdays at 5pm where you can stroll downtown during the summer months and check out local artist crafts, have some food & enjoy some music. The 4th of July Parade and Pancake Breakfast are popular annual events. You will find many challenging golf courses in the Tahoe-Truckee area. Famous to the area are the many Lake Tahoe ski resorts, including Squaw Valley, home of the 1960 Winter Olympics. Many resorts put on winter & summer events that draw visitors from all over. Kayak and paddleboard at Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake and enjoy a relaxing sightseeing or late afternoon dining excursion on beautiful blue Lake Tahoe. Glider and Hot Air Balloon rides in Truckee offer magnificent views of the region. Donner Lake offers beaching & boating, kayaking & paddling as well as Donner State Park and new State Park Museum opening in June, 2015. Hike on river trails right at the rental and try the many mild to strenuous mountain biking & hiking trails throughout the Tahoe-Truckee region and at nearby Boca & Stampede Reservoirs close to the rental. Additional hiking & mountain climbing areas are available on Old Highway 40 over Donner Summit offering outstanding views of the area. A virtual playground all year around. Whatever you like to do, chances are the Truckee-Tahoe area provides it. Visit downtown Reno, Nevada, just 30 minutes away, for big mall shopping, dining & casinos, museums, planetarium, antique stores, music concerts & Broadway shows. The famous Silver mining town of Virginia City south of Reno is a day trip worth taking the whole family. For travelers, Reno-Tahoe International Airport in Reno offers travelers and family members exceptional convenience to and from our location off Interstate 80 - you can't beat that!
