So you’ve made the decision to spend your hard earned vacation this year with us here in Tahoe—awesome! There are few better places in the world to kick up your feet and relax than on the shores of our beautiful lake. You’ve worked hard all year for this getaway, and if you’re anything like us, you’ll want this trip to be absolutely perfect by any means necessary. We’re here to help! Here are five secrets for you to keep in mind when planning the perfect fall trip to Tahoe:

Figure Out Where You Want to Stay

One of the biggest recommendations that we can make to help make your next fall trip to Tahoe is to figure out exactly where you want to stay. One thing people seem to often forget about Lake Tahoe is just how big it is! Lake Tahoe’s shoreline is 72 miles around, and there’s a plethora of different towns that you can choose to stay in, with Tahoe City, Kings Beach, and Tahoma being some of the more popular spots.

What Do You Want to Do?

Well, this is always the big looming question over any vacation, isn’t it? And this is doubly true when you stay at Lake Tahoe because there’s no shortage of incredible activities for you to be able to take part in! One thing that we would recommend (and you can tie this in with your planning of exactly where you want to stay as well) is to prioritize what you want to do most on your vacation, and then go from there to find the best place to stay. For example, some of the best beaches of Lake Tahoe are located on the northwestern side, while if you’re planning on hiking one of the many peaks surrounding the lake, you’ll want to look at somewhere on the west side of the lake.

Non-Stop Events All Fall Long!

One of the reasons that millions of people vacation in Tahoe every year is because the area is so vibrant and alive, and this is due in part by the fact that you’ll typically find some kind of special event going on just about every weekend! Tahoe is home to a number of amazing festivals of events all fall long that celebrate local music, cuisine, culture, and more! From Shakespeare festivals and readings in Glenbrook to the annual Lake Tahoe Fall Festival in South Lake Tahoe every October, you’ll be certain to find something for everyone when you stay here with us.

Make Sure to Eat Local!

One of the best kept secrets about the Tahoe area is that we are fortunate to have an abundance of fresh and locally grown ingredients, and a number of our local restaurants take full advantage of this! Local favorites such as The Getaway Café use only the freshest ingredients available to make incredible dishes that are truly unforgettable. So when you stay here in Tahoe make sure to stop in at one of our many local restaurants to taste this difference for yourself!

Don’t Worry About Overpacking

A lot of people that we talk to want to visit the Tahoe area because of all of the great outdoor activities you can partake in here, but their worried about the amount of gear they might have to buy and bring. There are a number of great local businesses all around Tahoe that specialize in renting out equipment, so you don’t have to worry! Skis, mountain bikes, kayaks—you name it, we’ve got it for you.
