Vegas in Central Cal
Posted Jul 9, 2013 on Hotels
For my wife's birthday, she wanted to get the gambling bug out of her system. We didn't want to fly all the way to Vegas and we also didn't want to drive all the way up to Tahoe from the Bay Area. Given this, she did some research and decided to give Thunder Valley a shot. Our overnight getaway worked out well. Room was clean, modern and luxurious. For dining, the High Steaks restaurant was top-notch and really an upscale steakhouse. The Thunder Cafe also worked well for breakfast. Casino itself was great for table play. My wife also appreciated the fact that they have all the latest video game-style slot machines (ie Family Guy, River Fishin', etc). My only quip is that the casino is a bit too smoky for my liking. Otherwise, Thunder Valley is a great spot to scratch your gamblin' itch.
