  • Good place to visit while in Tahoe City. Rich local history, Olympic skies, dresses upstairs. First floor American Indian artifacts.  more »

  • Visited Fanny Bridge and the dam yesterday. A couple of the dam gates were open and lots of water was flowing into the Truckee River. There were huge Trout swimming on the downstream side of the dam. On the lakeside there was a flock of Canadian Geese. Very picturesque and interesting. You can actually walk across the top of the dam. Dam goes across the only outlet out of Lake Tahoe.
  • Its surreal, serene and historic. Family oriented place. Everyone should come see this place. Don't forget to bring the camerasđŸ˜‰
