We'll end our journey at the 170-year-old Groveland Hotel with a quick nip at their Bourbon Bar & Taproom before we explore their historic wine cellar! You may even get to meet Lyle, gold miner and hotel guest since 1925 - umm, yeah, he's a ghost! We'll say goodbye with plenty of time that evening to enjoy shopping, dining or live music in downtown Groveland!
