Our Story

The Romantic Adventures team.
The Romantic Adventures team.

In 1999, with tremendous determination and an unwavering sense of style & flair, Rena B. opened Romantic Adventures on the South Shore of Lake Tahoe. Rena comments, “It was something I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve had some businesses in the past. My first was a souvenir shop called Happyness Boutique where I sold Lake Tahoe mementos mixed with a couple of pieces of lingerie and a vibrator or two. It was great fun.

“Then I opened a convenience store called Bottoms Up. You could run in and choose some sunscreen, snacks, beer & wine, a cute teddy, a vibrator, and some lube. It was an awesome idea and people loved it.

After running Happyness Boutique and Bottoms Up, it was a natural progression for Rena to open her own lingerie shop. And thus, Romantic Adventures was born.

After combining the best of Rena’s first two businesses into Romantic Adventures the decision was made to close her other shops and concentrate solely on the new venture. Rena and her staff provide a unique shopping experience for their customers. In a friendly atmosphere, they combine their knowledge with excellent customer service all the while maintaining the attitude that shopping at Romantic Adventures ought to be-lots of fun!

“We’re a tourist destination and we have return customers every year,” explains Rena. “Our customers love visiting beautiful Lake Tahoe and seeing what’s new at Romantic Adventures. The biggest request we hear from those customers is that they wished there was a Romantic Adventures in their area.”

That’s when Rena started thinking: How could we provide our customers with the Romantic Adventures shopping experience right now, without trying to open a new store in every town?

That’s when the idea for the web site was conceived!
