It may be hard to believe, but not only have the holidays arrived, now is the time to start planning your New Year’s Eve activities! In past years you may have decided to stay home, but haven’t you had enough of staring at the same four walls over the past 12 months? Between quarantines, telecommuting, and food delivery options, most of us have rarely left the house in 2020, and if you’re ready to get out and play, North Lake Tahoe has some wonderful ways to say so long to 2020 and hello to a very happy 2021! This guide to the fun you can have during your New Year’s getaway to Tahoe ensures that every minute of every day will be fun, exciting, and best of all, offer something different from you normally experience at home!

Hike Through the Snow

Even when it is cold and snowy, North Lake Tahoe is one of our favorite places on earth, and after a year of uncertainty and turmoil, just getting out and breathing in all that fresh clean air is a good way of ensuring that 2021 will be better than 2020! The Spooner Lake Loop, Eagle Rock, and Donner Summit Train Tunnels all offer hikes that will make you thankful you chose North Lake Tahoe for your New Year’s adventure.

Culinary Adventures

Eating out is a changem and if you are looking for something special, Drunken Monkey Sushi located at 11253 Brockway Road Suite #105 in Truckee may be just what you’re looking for! Toast the new year with your favorite crunchy tuna rolls and invite your family to give up their unimaginative food choices of the previous year! Dedicated to pushing the boundaries of good flavor, it’s a toss up as to what we love more; their classic sushi dishes or the new ones they invent!

Cheers to the New Year

With the advent of the pandemic, the nightlife in North Lake Tahoe has changed, but if you’re looking for an evening of cold beverages, warm friendships, and a few games of pool, the Tourist Club Bar (also known as the T-Club) at 10110 Donner Pass Road in Truckee has exactly what you need! It is not fancy, but it’s laidback vibe and friendly staff gives the T-Club such a great feel, it really is a wonderful place to from which to greet the New Year’s in North Lake Tahoe, especially since it’s one of the few places that has maintained its 2 AM closing time during the current crisis.
