The service, location and pricing were GREAT! Sadly the property is very old and in need of remodel otherwise would have rated it higher.

Things To Do during your Lake Tahoe Vacation

Best time to take a trip to Lake Tahoe

Best Time to Go

With moderate summer temperatures and cold winters and lots of snow, Lake Tahoe vacations are convenient almost any time of year. If you like skiing or snowboarding, schedule your visit for winter. The largest crowds are actually in the summer months, when all of the historic lodges are open and moderate temperatures let folks from the surrounding desert areas in Nevada cool off a bit. Summer's the time for the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival and the Fourth of July celebrations at South Lake Tahoe. To save money, you can visit during fall just after the kids go back to school, save some money and enjoy the turn of the leaves.

Things to do in Lake Tahoe

Concerts and live comedy

Thanks to large casino venues Lake Tahoe draws bigger names than other mountain towns. Plan ahead by checking the Montbleu and Harvey’s lineups.

Casinos

Hello, party time! The stateline on Tahoe's south shore is a mini-Las Vegas with Montbleu, Harrah’s, Harvey’s and more. Find karaoke, flashy clubs, all-night eats and gambling galore.

Slopeside happy hours

Popular spots include the tiki bar at Sierra-at-Tahoe, the village at Heavenly and the on-snow swimming pool at Squaw Valley.

Mountain Bike Northstar-at-Tahoe

Shelling out extra dough for a top-of-the-line demo bike and protective padding are worthwhile Lake Tahoe travel investments. If steep dirt trails are too gnarly for your style, try the 3.5-mile paved South Lake Tahoe Bike Path.

Relax at a spa

Keep Lake Tahoe’s dry air and high-altitude effects at bay with a hydrating spa treatment. Options along the quiet north shore range from the small Lighthouse Spa, where massages are done overlooking the lake, to the upscale Hyatt Regency spa.

Ski resorts

Hit the trails at major resorts (Alpine Meadows, Kirkwood, Mt. Rose, Squaw Valley, to name a few) or opt for smaller-scale (Boreal, Sugar Bowl). Want lake views? Point your skis (or snowboard) toward Heavenly. Get some air in the very resort town where halfpipe riding was invented: Tahoe's Sierra and Northstar world-class terrain parks.

Kings Beach

Forget palm trees! Sunbathe next to pine trees at the best sandy beach on Lake Tahoe's north shore.

Blue Water Bistro

Lakeshore dining is a must-do on any Lake Tahoe vacation. Try this elegant, casual indoor-outdoor spot on its own dock overlooking the lake. Crabcakes and California wine at sunset are faves.

Celebrity Golf Championship

It’s no secret that Hollywood loves Tahoe, with its location just hours from SoCal and a scenic backdrop perfect for blockbusters like The Godfather Part II. Witness this connection in person at the annual spectator-friendly July golf tournament.

Boating on Lake Tahoe

Get out on the water during your Lake Tahoe vacation for views of the snow-capped mountains from afar. Everything from personal kayak rentals to full-on Tahoe Queen Cruises are on hand.
