Thanksgiving means travel for a lot of people. It’s a time to reconnect with family. Instead of debating who should go to whose house, why not settle on a place everyone can enjoy? With so many fun Thanksgiving Things To Do, as well as it’s Norman Rockwell-like atmosphere, Lake Tahoe is the ideal place for celebrating the Thanksgiving Holiday. Here are our top reasons you should spend this Thanksgiving in Lake Tahoe:

The Chance of Snow

For much of California, winter can’t come fast enough—the people in Los Angeles grow tired of having to open up their windows at night to cool off, letting in the street noise. But in the mountains, temperatures drop as early as September. By November, you’ve got brisk afternoons and chilly nights that are perfect for hunkering under the covers or drinking the most rewarding hot chocolate of the year. It’s the perfect time for kids to stay in and play games with the family. In other words, it’s perfect for Thanksgiving.

For the more outdoorsy types, we also have good news: the snow capital of California is already embracing the slopes. Some North Lake Tahoe Ski Resorts open in mid-November, so you can work off your Thanksgiving belly with some quality time on the slopes.

Enjoy the Small-Town Vibe

North Lake Tahoe and the Truckee area are the perfect places to get in touch with the small-town values that seem so critical during the holidays. Knowing (and loving) your neighbor and being close to family are all things that people in our small town understand. When you and your family stay in a small town, you’ll feel more together than ever before.

Day Trips

And perhaps the nicest part of Truckee is that it lets you enjoy the small-town atmosphere within reach of big cities. San Francisco is under 200 minutes away, and Sacramento is even closer. Why not enjoy Thanksgiving in a North Lake Tahoe Cabin Rental, then head to some of America’s biggest cities for some serious Black Friday shopping?

If you’re looking for somewhere to go this Thanksgiving, why not try the festivities of Lake Tahoe? It will be a holiday you won’t soon forget!
