Santa Changes Things

Your child may be worried that Santa doesn’t know where he or she will be at Christmas this year, but you can relieve the fears with a visit with Santa on December 4 in Tahoe Vista! Tahoe City Winter Sports Park is the spot and the jolly old elf himself promises to take a few hours of his very busy Christmas schedule to sit and chat with your favorite kiddos. Offering arts and crafts stations, fun Christmas games, and a picture with Santa PLUS a Christmas gift, the joy on your child’s face will be the most memorable part of your winter getaway!

A Little Last-Minute Shopping This Christmas in North Lake Tahoe

No matter how hard you work to get it all done before Christmas Eve, there are always little gifts that need to be purchased in the waning days before the holiday, and the Holiday Bazaar, held on December 11 at the Tahoe Flow Arts & Features in Tahoe Vista, is sure to offer the gifts that will be a hit with their recipients. Participate in a discounted class to help you find your center, purchase raffle tickets for amazing prizes, and dance along to the live music as you browse tables filled with the perfect gifts. Christmas doesn’t have to be another chore when you spend it in Lake Tahoe, and the proceeds go to helping local artisans perfect their crafts, so you will be doing a good deed as well!

Missed the First Bazaar?

Big families require lots of gifts, and if you didn’t find all you needed at the Holiday Bazaar in Tahoe Vista, you get a second chance with this sweet bazaar found in Truckee! Held on December 18 at the Mountain Lotus Yoga Studio, you can shop till you drop as DJ Disco Terrorist spins some of his favorite tunes. Featuring special antiques, handcrafted jewelry, and a variety of gifts destined to make your family feel special, this Holiday Bazaar also will be serving up sweet treats and tasty drinks to ensure your personal fuel tank stays filled. It can take up a lot of energy to get all your shopping done, and they don’t want you to fall behind!

Keeping Up with Your Holiday Traditions

Every little girl remembers her first time seeing the Nutcracker, and if your journey brings you to North Lake Tahoe, you can give your own daughter the unique experience that has become everyone’s holiday tradition! Tahoe Nutcracker is being performed nearly every Friday during the month of December, with special extra performances being held on Saturday, December 18th and Sunday December 19th at the North Tahoe Middle School in Tahoe City! Performed by the Lake Tahoe Dance Collective and offering a unique twist to the traditional performance with the addition of 1919 Lake Tahoe being the setting behind the show, the stars in your daughter’s eyes will be mirrored in your own as you recreate the experience for the child that has changed your life!

Starting New Traditions

Watching the Nutcracker, opening a single present on Christmas Eve, even sipping wine as you lay under the Christmas tree with your soulmate, staring up at the colorful lights twinkling on the branches—these are all traditions you hold dear to your heart, and they can be enjoyed during your stay in one of our holiday hideaways. But holding onto old traditions doesn’t mean there is no room for new ones, including a dinner out on the town on Christmas Day! Why should mom be stuck in front of the stove, cooking and cleaning much as she would any other day of the week when restaurants like Caliente, 8791 N Lake Boulevard in Kings Beach, offer the opportunity to start a spicy new Christmas tradition? Skip the turkey, add tequila, and you have the perfect recipe for a relaxing and fun Christmas dinner!
