An October 2001 trip
to South Lake Tahoe by debbyl
Quote: We drove to Lake Tahoe the long scenic way from Wa. state after leaving the interstate behind in Sacramento. There are many small, historic towns and apple orchards along the way. The scenery was gorgeous. The trees were turning brilliamt colors of gold, red and orange.

Restaurant | "The Peppermill buffet"
The setting is a rain forest and we were surprised by a rain shower and thunderstorm during our meal. The first time it happens it is a shock. After that you look forward to it happening. The lights dim and they actually have what looks like lightning. Also during the lightning period comes thunder and then the rain. It is very realistic except for the fact that you don't get wet (only a few, light, stray sprinkles). They even have trees that blow in the wind.
The price was a little higher than most buffets, but we felt it was worth it. I would go back to Reno just to experience this buffet again.
