In a perfect world, every vacation would last forever, but in real life we rarely have more than a week off at a time, and quite often we’re lucky to get three days away from the “chain gang!” The good news is that while three days in North Lake Tahoe isn’t the optimal situation, it is possible to see the lion’s share of the sights and still come away feeling as if you experienced the vacation of a lifetime. This guide will ensure you don’t miss out on anything important and you check out the main North Lake Tahoe attractions. Just remember: There is a difference between winter visits and summer ones, so we’ll try to get a nice mix of both!
North Lake Tahoe Attractions – Day 1: Raring to Go
Although the beds in our Tahoe Signature Properties are cloud soft, you won’t have time to dally; three days will go by fast! Start with breakfast at Rosie’s Caféat 571 N Lake Boulevard in Tahoe City, as you’ll want to fuel up and prepare for a day of fun and adventure. Today, we’re heading to the lake! It IS the main reason for visiting, so spending your precious hours kayaking or SUP’ing on the waters in the summer is not to be missed. Order the necessary equipment at North Tahoe Paddle by calling 530-448-7054. This activity will take up most of the day, and by dinner time you will be ready for a lakeside dining experience at Christy Hill(115 Grove Street in Tahoe City). If you’re an outdoorsy person, this will most likely be one of your favorite North Lake Tahoe attractions.
Day 2: Winter Adventures
It’s a tad chilly on Lake Tahoe in the winter, but the cold isn’t going to stop you; today’s adventures will be all about the mountain! Mt. Rose is our favorite place to spend a winter’s day, offering slope-side parking, longer ski seasons, and Tahoe’s highest base elevation! Lunch on the mountain is easy, as Mt. Rose offers a variety of dining choices that will fill your stomach as they feed your soul,and when it’s time to come out of the clouds for dinner, Jake’s on the Lake at 780 North Lake Boulevard in Tahoe City is there to help you finish your Tahoe winter adventure in style! Serving hearty meals that will warm and comfort you, the petite filet and prawns is our favorite dish, but feel free to explore the menu to discover your own favorites! If you are visiting North Lake Tahoe in the winter, this is one of the best North Lake Tahoe attractions.
Day 3: Wow, That Went Fast
Before you know it, it will be time to start packing and saying goodbye to our lakeside paradise, but before you do, there are still a few exciting activities to partake in, so put that suitcase back in the closet and put on your most comfortable pair of walking shoes! In the morning we are going to hike along the trails that traverse the area; check out the Brockway Summit Tahoe Rim Trail Trailhead in Tahoe Vista and enjoy the sights, sounds, and scents of Tahoe in its finest form.
Save up your energy for an afternoon of shopping. The North Tahoe Arts Center at 380 North Lake Boulevard in Tahoe City is our suggestion as to where you should start! Offering a gallery of everything beautiful as well as classes to take when you have more time on your next visit, you’re guaranteed to find a sweet something to bring back home with you!
To round up another perfect day, dinner at Wolfdale’s Cuisine Unique at 640 North Lake Boulevard in Tahoe City is the best way to end your day; offering high-end cuisine and a dining experience you will never forget, THIS is how to say goodbye to Tahoe on a high note.
