We are a couple in our mid 50's who love to hike and enjoy the beauty of the natural world. After a business trip to Sacramento, we will be spending 3 days in Yosemite (April 14-17). We want to go somewhere else for Friday night. Saturday night we will stay in Sacramento because we have an early flight out. I am looking at Tahoe and Reno but I would also consider small towns or anything unique. We are not gamblers and I don't see us skiing on this trip since we would have limited time.
I would love to hear suggestions of what others would recommend. I would love to hear activity recommendation for mid-April in that area also.
