Driving to SLC

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am planning to go skiing around SLC (first time) in January and thinking of driving there from San Francisco. I understand it is a fairly long drive, about 8 hours drive from Reno? 


Are there any places of interest (for shopping or sight seeing) between Reno and SLC to break up the long boring drive? 


Thanks in advance.

Not to quibble too much but I always think of SLC to Reno being about a 7 hour drive. 


There is not a lot to break up the drive.  Elko is probably the most substantial city and it has a number of casinos and restaurants.  There are a couple of Basque family style restaurants downtown that are pretty unique (The Star and one other whose name slips my mind).  The Peppermill has a decent restaurant or two.  I only really know about them because I have done some business in Elko.  When we used to drive from SLC to Tahoe fairly regularly we generally just tried to power through and get it done.
