Located adjacent to the Main Street arch, and in a spot for someone who really wants to enjoy Reno’s downtown experience. The Whitney Peak Hotel may run an extra $20 more than expected, but well worth it for people looking for a non-gaming, non-smoking hotel. Wanting something to do out of the ordinary? If an extreme sport comes to mind, check out the Guinness Book of World Records “World’s Tallest Artificial Climbing Wall.” A 7,000 square foot, one of a kind indoor wall is an experience in itself. After conquering the wall, follow the smelly smell of goodness to the hotel’s Roundabout Grill. Get ready to embark on a global cuisine!

Open the doors and walk into paradise. The Grand Sierra Resort is a playground for adults who yearn for fun. Drinks and dancing at night, relaxing time in the heated swimming pool in the morning.

Overlooking scenic Lake Tahoe in Incline Village is bedrooms for people loving the true outdoors. A cozy place to call home while on a days long vacation. Maybe a relaxing get away for a night to enjoy a blue lake surrounded by snow peak mountains and trees as far as the eyes can see. Hyatt Residence Club Lake Tahoe, High Sierra Lodge is just minutes away from the white beaches of Crystal Bay. When staying here, the rooms are an upscale lodge tucked away in trees to give it a camping in nature feel. Independence Day is said to be spectacular with these views! In the winter, which is sometimes all season long, this lodge is not far from popular ski and snowboard resorts.
111 Country Club Dr, Incline Village, NV 89451
Waterfront Lake Tahoe with the Sierra Nevada Mountains as a “good morning” and “good night” views. Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa and Casino is just a rock’s throw away from our previous Hyatt destination, but this is beachfront. Walk into a lobby warmed by a beautiful fireplace and realize it’s about to be one heck of a time. There’re six different rooms to choose from, so select before staying to ensure the one chosen fits the vibes. For the rooms, think of a lake front in the Northeast. Nice, inviting rooms with modern lake house amenities. Once the bags are wheeled in or off those stressed shoulders, take a quick walk to the private beach and see what’s in store. Chairs for relaxation, and a view of Lake Tahoe and those snow-capped mountains. Make sure reservations are made for dinner at the Lone Eagle Grille for around 4:30 p.m. Trust when I say the sunset, you’re about to witness maybe the best you’ve ever seen: a panoramic view of Lake Tahoe.

For someone who loves the thrill of winning on anything sports related and getting “straight cash homie,” this is heaven. When parking outdoors or in the garage, the entrance into the palace know as The Peppermill brings out king and queen vibes. From their large white pillars inside, resembling a Roman cathedral to the three different hotels a patron can choose from, this casino is more than just rolling the dice. The Peppermill sports gaming experience is high class, personal centric, electric and entertaining. While watching the AFC Championship game in 2016 between the Patriots vs Broncos — side corner table with a nice cigar from a local shop and an IPA in hand — Tom Brady’s loss was America’s win. Do this writer one favor: bring some extra cash and enjoy dinner in a steakhouse known for its unparalleled atmosphere. The Bimini Steakhouse is a five-star, award-winning cuisine with an adventurous table setting. Imagine eating a meal in a personal Japanese tea garden where there’s more than 1,000 bottle choices.
