lake surrounded by snowy mountains

Featuring some of the most incredible natural beauty and picturesque landscapes anywhere in the United States, it’s no surprise that Lake Tahoe has remained one of the most popular vacation spots for decades. With so many different activities right at your fingertips and things to do, we’ve been asked one question more times than we can keep track of: When is the best time to visit Lake Tahoe? Well, surprisingly, the answer is simple. There is no bad time to visit Lake Tahoe! Because of the incredible area that Lake Tahoe is in, there’s no “bad” time to come and visit, as the opportunities for things to do doesn’t diminish at all, but rather just changes and evolves!

Fun in the Sun During the Summertime

By far the most popular time to visit the Lake Tahoe area, there is no shortage of fun in the sun to be had during the summer months. Due to our high elevation (we sit at just over 6,200 feet), temperatures during the summertime remain relatively cool in the mid to high 70’s, and this creates the perfect climate to get out and explore the trails or just kick back and relax on the beach! Because of the cool weather, we are also able to have a number of awesome outdoor events every year, such as the Palisades Tahoe Brews, Jazz & Fun Fest, where you can sample beers from over 40 brewers and enjoy some of the best live music the region has to offer!

Hitting the Slopes During the Winter Time

Rest assured-when the mercury drops in the winter months, the amount of fun that can be had at Lake Tahoe certainly doesn’t! Once winter hits, Lake Tahoe receives a generous amount of snow that blankets the mountainsides and creates the ultimate winter wonderland for you and your family! Enjoy snowboarding, cross country skiing, and more! When winter hits, Lake Tahoe truly becomes the outdoor sporting mecca of the United States. It is especially great to visit during the holidays!

As you can see, there really is no bad time to visit Lake Tahoe, as the weather is always beautiful, the scenery is always breathtaking, and there’s never any shortage of things for you and your family to do. Whether you’re looking for fun in the sun and to relax on the gorgeous beaches of the lake, or you want to shred the slopes during the winter months, Lake Tahoe truly is the place to be.
