Our Favorite Activities for Summer and Fall:

Lake Tahoe really does come alive during the summer and fall seasons. Beautiful, clear sandy beaches await the bustling visitors who stroll down the sidewalks, anxious to find them. Aspen trees burst with color throughout the valleys and the smell of evergreen pines lingers in the cool fall nights. From music festivals, to movies on the beach, there is always something amazing happening daily. Experience all that North Lake Tahoe can provide with tips and secrets from our knowledgeable staff!
