Casino
“Inside the casino, you can find the famous seafood buffet- all you can eat lobsters and king crabs. Best way to get seatings- wait time can be more than 2 hrs so plan ahead- I recommend go to the casino and rsvp for the time slot you want to enjoy the feast.”

“About the Park Rock House imageIndian Grinding Rock State Historic Park (IGR) is located in the Sierra Nevada foothills 12 miles east of Jackson, CA. The park nestles in a little valley 2,400 feet above sea level with open meadows and large valley oaks that once provided the Native Americans of this area with an ample supply of acorns. The park was created in 1968 and preserves a great outcropping of marbleized limestone with some 1,185 mortar holes -- the largest collection of bedrock mortars in North America. www.parks.ca.gov”

Off-Licence
““Another one of the best Amador County wineries to visit gives you a taste of history with your glass of wine. We know you’ll love Prospect Cellars. The tasting room is housed in a charming restored Post Office. Not only is it a tasting room, but also a local hangout with a visitor’s center and an eatery. Guests can wine taste with bites like the charcuterie and cheese plate or even ice cream - Raspberry Zinfandel Chip, anyone? Their popular wines include Gold Digger Red Wine, Pay Dirt Zinfandel, and the Cooper Ranch Barbera. At Prospect you can munch on toasted panini sandwiches, pairing them with wine flights. They are also open later than most wineries in town, so it’s a great last stop to keep that wine buzz going.” Californiawineadvisors.com”
