Planning a proposal can be a stressful event. The story of your proposal will be one that you retell to friends and family members for years, and you want everything to be perfect! One way to create a memorable proposal is to pop the question while on vacation. For the couple that loves the outdoors, there is no better place than Lake Tahoe! Here is our list of favorite Lake Tahoe proposal spots to ask the love of your life to marry you.

Heavenly Gondola

The Gondola at Heavenly Village is the perfect spot for a sweet proposal with a great view! Whether you visit in the winter, during the ski season, or during the summer when the surrounding forests are lush and green, you are sure to create a romantic backdrop. $38 pays for a ride to the top of the mountain and sets the mood for you to pop the question while overlooking the mountain’s beauty. For added romance, pack a picnic lunch!

Lake Tahoe Balloons INC

Imagine popping the question from 10,000 feet in the air, surrounded by views on all sides of Emerald Bay, Fallen Leaf Lake, Cascade Lake, and Desolation Wilderness! A hot air balloon ride is a romantic and thrilling way to propose. Lake Tahoe Balloons INC offers hot air balloon rides early in the morning. Enjoy breakfast while you watch the balloon inflate and then fly high in the sky for a romantic hour of stunning views. When you get back down to Earth, celebrate by popping a bottle of champagne!

Tahoe Sailing Charters

Go above and beyond when you propose by renting a sailing boat and taking a chartered tour of the lake. From May to September, Tahoe Sailing Charters operates tours along the west shore of Lake Tahoe. You can book a spot on their 30-passenger yacht, or reserve a private boat for a more intimate experience. Sweep her off her feet with the experience of a lifetime, and then make it even better by taking a knee and asking her to be your wife. She is sure to say yes!
