Daily Itinerary

Day 1

Our convenient door-to-door service brings you to the Sports Leisure Vacations office. Depart for the south shore of Lake Tahoe for the popular Forest Buffet at Harrah’s. Continue your travels down Highway 395, crisscrossing California and Nevada as you make your way to Tonopah. Indulge yourself at the Mizpah Hotel, a landmark of luxury since 1907, when Tonopah was the last of the Wild West boom towns, bustling with those seeking fortunes in the silver mines. Due to a limited number of two-bedded rooms at the historic Mizpah Hotel, additional double rooms will be provided at the nearby Best Western High Desert Inn. (BR)

Day 2

A quick stop in Las Vegas is just enough to whet your appetite; next, drop by Sam’s Town for a dinner buffet. Arrive Laughlin early evening with three nights to enjoy the river view from your hotel. Golden Nugget – 3 nights (D)

Day 3-4

With two full days in Laughlin, you have several options. Travel the Colorado River by jet boat to Lake Havasu, home of the famous London Bridge; and view breathtaking Topock Gorge, only accessible by river, along the way. Enjoy a hosted lunch before returning to Laughlin via our coach. (If you opt out of the jet boat ride and lunch at Lake Havasu deduct $100 from the price of the tour. This must be done at the time of making your reservation.) Or maybe you’d rather visit Oatman, a Route 66 landmark and home to the famous burros. Have lunch at the Oatman Hotel; tho’ a word of warning – watch out those burros don’t steal your ice cream! (Opt out at the time of booking and receive a $25 credit.) (2L)

Day 5

Depart Laughlin this morning, stopping in Yermo for lunch at the fabulous and fun Peggy Sue’s, then continue on through Mojave and Bakersfield to Tachi Palace for one more opportunity at the slots. This beautiful hotel is one of the finest casino hotels in California. Tachi Palace (L)

Day 6

Enjoy a relaxing morning before traveling north, arriving in Sacramento early afternoon. Your transportation waits at the office to take you home. (L)
