DONNER LAKE TRAIL

FULL BELLY DELI
Sandwiches run around $10. Fresh bread and ingredients are used in some of the most creative sandwiches around. If you’re a meat-lover the Dirka Dirka is a good choice! Grab a sandwich and bring it with you when you walk the Donner Lake trail, you can have a picnic on the lake!
$8 per person (infants under 1 free). This fun little museum is a great way to spend the afternoon with your little ones.
HIGH CAMP HOME
This home store is associated with a local design firm and has anything and everything a chic cabin could ask for. I always make a point to stop here and window shop whenever we’re in town.
One of the newer restaurants in town. They have a fun and unique dinner (and bar!) menu. Entrees will run you $30 – $60. Handmade pasta, homemade cheese and a great meat selection. Insider tip: If you order the Payment Differed, ask the bartender to burn the Chartreuse for you, it gives the drink a smokey richness that’s crazy good.

Located right underneath Truckee Tavern is an old fashioned sweet shop that makes their own fudge. You can smell it down the block. It’s delicious. Stop by for a free sample!
For a little night life, live music, good drinks and good company. $8 – $12 per drink.
This historic hotel has been around since 1873, and for those of you thrill seekers out there, stay on the 4th floor, it’s supposedly haunted 😉 Rooms run from $79 – $229.
