Take a Reno-Tahoe Adventure Road Trip
We spent the rest of the afternoon exploring historic Virginia City, Nevada. Being in this colorful and lively historic town was like taking a step back in history. We took an old-time photo at Silver Sadie's, got some jerky from Virginia City Jerky Co., checked out the Storey County Courthouse and stopped for a refreshing drink at the Bucket of Blood Saloon before driving to Reno.
The highlight here was our stay at Whitney Peak Hotel, which offered stunning decor, a wonderful in-house restaurant -- Cafe Whitney -- and a huge gym. It's home to the "World's Tallest Artificial Climbing Wall" as designated by the Guinness Book of World Records. Our son had a blast dangling nearly 50 feet over the famous Reno arch. This 164-foot outdoor climbing wall was an unexpected and fascinating travel treat and a great way to cap off our memorable road trip adventure tour.
