Black Oak Casino is a large Casino in the Tuolumne City. It is always clean, has multiple restaurants for your taste, bowling and have some great evening entertainment. We recently saw a fantastic 80s band that is there regularly and will be back for them.

Wide selection of "traditional casino, coffee shop food" if there is such a thing. They have everything except the 99 cent shrimp cocktails. You'll enjoy all they have to offer at reasonable prices.

I will be staying at the Golden Nugget January 23-27, 2015 and wanted to visit the outlet stores nearby. Are these stores within walking distance of the hotel, and if so, would it be considered a safe area to walk?
