How About a Road Trip to Winter Wonderland
I received two emails this morning saying that the first snow of 2017 has arrived in Squaw Valley. They brought a smile to my face and memories of the magical time our family had at Squaw Valley in Tahoe, California. If you are thinking of a winter holiday in the US but haven’t decided where, do read on. Squaw Valley could just be what you’re looking for. Take a look at our travel diary here.
Our road trip to Tahoe started at Sacramento and was mostly on Interstate-80. We stayed at the beautiful Resort at Squaw Creek. A brief review of the resort can be found in my Squaw Valley (1) blog. Click here.
We were at Squaw Valley for 4 days and 3 nights. We realised that 5 days would have been better since there were so much to do.
Our original itinerary was the one below, but because of stomach flu, we had to change it up quite drastically.
