This area owes its simply beginnings to the logging industry that boomed along with the mining due to the Comstock Lode in Virginia City around the 1800’s. The Sierra Nevada Wood and Lumber Company were operated in this area. Incline Village gotten its name from the incline railway, this is where the wood was taken up 1,400 feet and then dropped by a gravity flume down the eastern side of the mountains.
Crystal Bay gained its famed from the lively Casinos and the individuals who either owned, managed, or visited this area such as Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Kennedy and Sam Giancana (the mobster whose presence brought Sinatra's casino adventures to an end) played here in the '60s. You can actually swim from one state to the other in the Cal-Neva Resort's swimming pool.
- Pros:A Beautiful Bay!
- In a nutshell:Stop, explore, hit the slots, and take a pic!
One thing that stands out is a beautiful bronze statue that graces the front of the casino. Sadley the plaque is fading... more travel advice
