Any fanatics have favorite spots, sites, hikes, casinos, etc.?
The Beacon Bar & Grill at Camp Richardson, get there as soon as they open, 11am for lunch and enjoy the view. For a bonus go on a Wednesday for cheaper Rum Runners.
I always loved this view and hate the traffic:
Definitely go to the Bistro at Edgewood golf course (where they have the celebrity golf tourney every year) at least for a drink at sunset or for dinner. The place is really cool, good food, and awesome views.
Base Camp pizza is also good.
If you're in to mountain biking the Flume Trail is amazing. You can rent bicycles and ride the trail and the'l'l come pick you up at the end.
Definitely hit up emerald bay but get up early or you won't get a parking spot over there. Spend the day walking down the trail to the lake from there, hiking up to Eagle Lake, and going to the top of the waterfall (right off the main road to the east side of the road at the deepest part of the bay).
Jakes on the Lake is good for food
Not a lot going on at North Lake there but Truckee is a really cool historic town with good bars, restaurants and Donner Pass is close to there
Let me know if you have other questions. We lived in South Lake for a year. The place is awesome and there is tons to do but traffic can be awful, especially this time of the year.
Facetious humor I get it, but I freaking love California and Lake Tahoe is almost in Cali. Some of the best restaurants, scenery- Death Valley, Lassen Volcano, Pacific Coast, Red Woods, Sequoias, etc. Three states in one and I still want to go to Joshua Trees and Catalina Island!
I would like to go there. I just think the clip is funny.
YOU gotta go man-if only to Yosemite. Fly into Reno or Vegas cheap (or Sacramento) rent a car and drive to Lake Tahoe and into Cali. hit the wine country, see Point Reyes more... we drove 2,200 miles without getting much south of San Fransico.
Second Vikingsholm. We stayed in Tahoe for about a week last summer and tried to hit a little of everything. The pictures from the top and bottom of this area are still almost fake looking the scenery is so impressive. Wish my wife and kids didn't get so carsick all the time, I'd love to go back!
you wanna Ski in July? They had just a ridiculous amount snow this past winter, and some mountains still have runs open
Yosemite falls are probably running very strong as well if you go over there
If you are looking for hiking, go to Squaw Valley Ski Area. You hike from the base or take tram up and hike down or across the ridge lines. There are also trails off the road to the south of squaw valley. When you are done, you can swim in the pool up top to cool off.
Also, worth just floating down the Truckee from just past Squaw Valley.
If you're into the TV series Bonanza, the set house if fun to see. Amazingly small.
Floating the Truckee is a no brainer.
The town of Truckee is cool to see as well with good food and bars. We were there last year and they had owi checkpoints setup so plan for that.
Rent a boat at Tahoe City Marina and cruise the lake. It will set you back a few bucks but it’s worth it. Plenty of room out on the water. Really nice hike at the north end of the lake at Brockway Summit. Not too bad to get up there and a great view of the lake. If you like crowds South Lake Tahoe is for you. If you want a little more quiet, stay on the north shore.
u can save some money and do a 2 hour booze cruise as well.
We are actually going to the Golf Tournament so the Bistro might be workable, although likely pretty crowded. Thanks for all the ideas! Very helpful.
