As the skies turn a softer shade of blue and the buds of spring flowers start pushing their way through the soil, our thoughts turn to eggs, bunnies, and the knowledge of sacrifices made for us a couple of millenniums ago. Easter is coming, and although it’s not typically considered a traveling holiday, this new decade in the new millennium has us thinking in new ways—specifically, an Easter in North Lake Tahoe just may be running through your mind! Held on April 12th, this month is the start of our favorite time of the year, and when you begin to explore the area in the spring, especially when you choose one of our Tahoe Signature Properties holiday hideaways for your vacation accommodations, you’ll understand why!
Music to Bring You Peace
Not every minute of your Easter escape has to be filled with holiday happenings. Sometimes just doing something you love, such as listening to your favorite music under blue skies, can bring you a peace of mind that prepares you for frantic moments ahead. The Alpine Spring Music Series, held on Saturdays starting March 7 from 2-5 PM, offers just the fun you’ve been seeking! Every Saturday is a different performer (April 11 has yet to be announced), and if the weather turns unfriendly, the performance will be moved to inside the Alpine Meadows Lodge!
The Hunt for Easter Eggs
After the chocolate bunnies, the search for Easter eggs is one of the most important parts of the holiday for the children in our families, and just because you aren’t at home, it doesn’t mean your children have to miss out! Tahoe City Golf Course, 251 North Lake Boulevard, is our favorite family friendly event, offering a Spring Extravaganza on Saturday April 11. Instead of eggs, the hunt for golf balls will bring giggles, and the chance to meet the Easter Bunny will make this holiday one they will never forget! Starting at 9:45 AM and lasting until 2:00 PM, music, food, and fun are on the itinerary as well, ensuring that every member of your family will get to enjoy!
Adults traveling with children may enjoy the adults-only Easter Brunch and Easter Egg Hunts at Gar Woods Grill & Pier! Located at 5000 North Lake Boulevard in Carnelian Bay, their Easter on the Lake has become a Tahoe tradition and reservations should be made in advance! The Brunch starts at 9:30 AM, with an unlimited Champagne Brunch being offered for $84.90 per person (standard brunch is $20 less and children 10 and under can participate for $34.90.) The egg hunt begins at 11 AM and is divided into three age groups, but after the children have had their fun and are eagerly checking out their haul, the adults get their turn with an egg hunt on the beach; cocktails are the main ingredient, of course!
As the Sun Rises Over North Lake Tahoe
For many celebrants, the quiet beauty and deep meaning of the sunrise service on Easter Sunday keeps them from traveling, but the many churches in our region will give you wings during Easter. Offering words of wisdom and worship, the priests, pastors, and preachers welcome you to their churches, as do their flocks, and although we won’t give specific recommendations—your choice of church is a personal one—we can promise you will find what you seek when you spend your Easter in North Lake Tahoe.
And then there’s the eagerly awaited Easter meal featuring everything from deviled eggs to ham, potatoes, and whatever other dishes that typically grace your dining table. Our Tahoe Signature Properties Easter escapes come with fully equipped kitchens, allowing you to spend some time preparing your family’s favorites, but if you’re not in the mood for chores, many of our local restaurants will offer an Easter brunch. The aforementioned Gar Woods Pier & Grill offers a feast that includes all you can drink champagne (who doesn’t love a mimosa on Easter?). We then move on to the Lodge Restaurant at Tahoe Donner, Manzanita in Northstar, and Granlibakken Tahoe in Tahoe City; the details haven’t been released yet, but all have offered exquisite Easter brunches in the past, and we can’t wait to see what delicacies we can sample on the first Easter of the new decade!
