Tons of fun for the whole family, we are 2.3 miles away from the stateline on the California side. We are directly across route 50 from El Dorado Beach, a popular South Shore destination. We have shops and restuarants within walking distance and public transportation east to the Stateline (Casinos, Heavenly Village) and west all the way to Emerald Bay.
