Horse Drawn Sleigh Rides at Sand Harbor State Park 

We try to remember that the snow will come and 'Dashing' will again be a part of the program!

But for now-- No Snow = Safe Roads!  So, we encourage you to get out, drive around the lake and see the sight that might not be available if frigid temperatures and road controls were in our forecast.  Some of my Favs are:  Virginia City is like stepping into the 1800's, Genoa's Hot Springs - Love It!, Reno's River Walk (good food there and some Music Hot Spots, the National Automobile Museum is amazing & the Discovery Center (for those of you with children) Is Awesome! Kids should be the only ones to enjoy this....

Until then, the Borges Family will be offering horse drawn sleigh/carriage rides on wheel at both of our locations.  Stateline & Sand Harbor

North Shore at Sand Harbor State Park offers spectacular views.  The main entrance is off Hwy 28 and we are located inside the State Park by the Visitor's Center.  On Saturdays & Sundays many times you can stop by and go for a ride from 11am - 3pm.  Fridays & Mondays call first to be sure reservations available.  775-588-2953

We will offer a 30 minute group ride for $25 per adult, $10 children under 10 years old.
