This town, high in the Sierra Nevada mountains, is on I-80, west of Reno. If you're heading west into California, through the Donner Pass, this is on the way.
It's a great way to beat the intense summer heat. Winter is very cold and snowy, so it's best to avoid going then. If you do, have snow chains on your tires.
- Pros:Perfect location for exploring the Sierra Nevadas
- Cons:Don't go during the winter; too much snow
- In a nutshell:A perfect day trip from Reno
Here is an excellent place to stay, eat, and browse in the shops. It's a pleasant day trip from Reno. more travel advice
The Donner Pass offers the best views of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Truckee, and Donner Lake. more travel advice
