Vacation time is our most favorite time of the year, and if you’re anything like us, we bet you feel the same way and would take a vacation every month, if at all possible! Of course, we all have jobs and responsibilities,and if we tried to get away every month, we wouldn’t have those jobs to pay for the responsibilities or the vacations! Besides, even with a once or twice a year break, it still can be difficult to finance trips away—unless you are renting one of our Tahoe Signature Properties, that is! Offering reasonable prices and innumerable vacationing tips, (including this article about free Lake Tahoe activities!), you are guaranteed a fun and exciting time during your once in a lifetime visit to Tahoe!

Kings Beach Recreation Area

While many activities come at a cost, enjoying the beauty of nature in Tahoe is ALWAYS free,with Kings Beach Recreation Area being one of our favorites spots to do so. Walking along the water’s edge hand in hand with your favorite traveling companion and watching the sun set over the lake in a fiery ball of color is an experience you won’t soon forget!

Donner Memorial State Park and Emigrant Trail Museum

Commemoratinga sad time in Tahoe’s history, this state park and museum offers insight to the trials and tribulations faced by early settlers in the area. Costing nothing, visitors can spend a few hours or more hiking through the park and a couple of hours more in the museum, which in addition to the Donner Party information, also has exhibits exploring the history of the completion of railroads in the area. Find this attraction at 12593 Donner Pass Road in Truckee.

Rock Climbing on the 90 Foot Wall

Your Tahoe vacation is supposed to be an adventure,and what’s more adventurous than precariously hanging from the side of a cliff? To be perfectly honest, most of us probably would never even attempt anything more dangerous than the rock climbing wall at our local children’s gym, but we do know that our guests are far braver and more daring than we could ever be! And for those daring souls, the 90-footwall located in Eagle Creek Canyon offers breathtaking views and a variety of moderate to difficult climbs for the intermediate climbers.

As the Sun Sets on Your Fun and Free Lake Tahoe Activities

Our Lake Tahoe Beach Wedding!

Hi everyone, in this post I’m going to share our experience of one of the most important days of our lives, OUR WEDDING DAY!!!

We were fortunate enough to be able to have our dream wedding on Lake Tahoe’s West Shore, in Rubicon Bay, what an amazing day, Aug 10th 2013 turned out to be an warm and sunny day, as most days are in Lake Tahoe, meaning sunny, not so warm in the winter 🙂

The Lake Tahoe beach wedding took place at a private home on the lake with a private beach and a gorgeous view, we had our ceremony on the beach and the cocktail hour and reception at the same property, everyone had a wonderful time, including me, even though I only remember bits and pieces, my emotions got the better of me.

As with all weddings the planning part started month before the big day, I will list all the vendor we’ve used in case you’re planning a wedding at Lake Tahoe or know someone who does.

My gown came from David’s Bridal and my husband’s (still not used to the new title:) suite came from Men’s Warehouse. My bridesmaids wore dresses form Alfred Angelo (it’s the tuxedo style they have) and the groom’s men got their tuxes from Jos. A. Bank, I was only able to find teal at Alfred Angelo and Jos. A. Bank.

Flowers- I ordered flowers at Costco and me and one of my bridesmaids helped with the flowers, we’ve worked in a flower shop before so we decided it’ll be a fun project to tackle.

All the tables, chairs, linens, serving utensils… came from Event Masters, they have an office in Truckee and they deliver all over the Lake.

The cake came from Tahoe House Bakery, they did such an amazing job and the service we’ve received from Barbara and the stuff was great, I’ve tried to get a hold of a few places but none were so accommodating. Our cake was chocolate raspberry, very moist and delicious. When we went tasting we were going to get the chocolate mouse, after the tasting our mind has changed and we loved it.

The pictures were taken by a friend, here’s his website:

The days of the wedding we took pictures at the property, a week after we scheduled a boat ride on the lake and went to Emerald Bay, we hiked all the way to the top and took some pictures in the tea house.

I hope I didn’t miss anything, if you have questions please feel free to get in touch with me.

Vacation Rentals are Growing in Popularity in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee

Here’s why Families and Couples on Vacation Choose Luxury Vacation Rentals over Hotels.

Many times it’s business as usual when planning a vacation to Lake Tahoe and Truckee, hop on a travel website and look for the best deal on a hotel or motel.  Now as we all know most of these hotels and motels may offer additional amenities such as on site restaurants etc.  But the truth is that hotel and motel accommodations lack for more than they offer.

Hotel rooms are small averaging 400-800 sq ft (Compared to vacation homes that range from 800-10,000 sq ft).  If you have a family a hotel room is going to be cramped.  And usually these hotel rooms offer no kitchen or refrigerator.  Now if you have a family of 6 you most likely will have to get two hotel rooms and with small children this can be a major hassle and expense especially in peak season.  Trust us… free breakfast and internet doesn’t cover the added hassle. Also, hotels and motels can be very crowded and loud.  You never know who is going to be sharing a wall with you and sleep can be tough if you have a loud neighbor and thin walls.

So what do you do?  We would suggest you investigate a vacation rental property.  The homes and cabins in Lake Tahoe and Truckee are beautiful.  Most offering wonderful spacious floor plans, amazing views and a true family environment that offers space to enjoy and privacy galore.  Families who travel for vacation do MUCH better in a vacation rental.  You can BBQ on the deck for dinner, if your home has a pool you can swim or take a dip in the hot tub.  And some homes offer game rooms, free internet, video games and big screen TV’s.  As for breakfast, there is nothing better than cooking a nice breakfast with the favorite food you bought or arranged to be delivered stored in your own full size refrigerator and sip your morning coffee overlooking the beauty of Lake Tahoe while you get ready to enjoy your day of outdoor adventure.
