Hey guys. I'm flying into Reno on July 2nd and will be staying through July 8th. I'm in Reno for the Mensa Annual Gathering, but my girlfriend will be driving from her home in Martinez, California to stay with me.
I've never been to Lake Tahoe, and I want to go there for a day, or two, and a night during the convention to spend some quality time with her and to make some memories and take some great photographs.
I'm 23, she's 22. Money is a bit tight. And it is going to be the week of July 4th, so I can imagine costs will be running at their highest rates.
I'm looking for any tips you can give me regarding:
-Bed and Breakfasts
-Best locations on the lake
-Scenic views/ Places to picnic (Looking to take her on a picnic)
-Sunrise and Sunset locations
-Reasonably affordable activities in the area.
-The best FOOD in the area. Homecooked style would be welcomed. Again, we're a couple of kids in our early 20's. We like a good drink (I myself would enjoy some local microbrews) and a good, familiar meal. Chicken, steaks, BBQ, in a comfortable setting. Fancy doesn't quite accommodate our personalities :D
If you've had great/fun/romantic experiences with your loved ones, please don't hesitate to share!
Could really use the help! Thanks guys!
