It's Snowing in the Sierras! September 10th we had our first snowfall, so you know what that means? We are going to have a short fall, but we want to make sure it is memorable for you. So here are our 3 must do activities for Tahoe.
1. Spend a night in a motel. Basecamp, Franciscan, and Mourelatos to name a few. One night staying on the Lake and exploring the shoreline mom and pop restaurants can be good for the soul. Nothing beats a moonlit Tahoe and being able to watch that sunrise. Some of our favorite late night restaurants include Lanza's and Mountain Cap Pizza.
2. Find those hot springs. 1862 David Walley's is a popular resort feel hot spring right outside of Carson City, about 30 minutes from Lake Tahoe. If you're traveling south we recommend following the mountain passes and looking for the hot spring gems, but if you are traveling north Lassen National Park is a must stop at attraction. There are hot springs for humans and geysers and mud pots to look at as well!
3. Paddle board or crystal kayak. Try a stand up paddle boarding or a kayak trip with a friend, there are less boats on the Lake in the fall so you do not have to worry about tourist traffic! The water will be COLD so be prepared for that, and always wear a life jacket. We recommend SUP yoga i or Wild Society for clear kayaks in South Lake, and Emerald Bay is always a popular destination!
