We fell in love with Lake Tahoe! So, we are now looking to buy a small vacation home there!
Old Truckee Wants To Give You A Parking Ticket
WEEKEND GETAWAY - CALIFORNIA
Lake Tahoe is a really special place, and offers something for everybody. It has both a California shore and a Nevada shore, so you can have both the mellow, health fanatic lifestyle on the California side, or slip over to Nevada for some "remember when fun wasn't bad for you" type fun. The scenery is gorgeous, and there is nothing like moonlight on the lake to set the romance mood. Tahoe is an even bigger summer destination and offers a ton of stuff to do, for young and old alike! Whatever you do, if you decide to go for a last-minute week-end, book your trip over the internet and use a travel site that specializes in packages. We flew up from Los Angeles, and booked our entire trip for about $350, including airfare, hotel and a rental car. That's $350 for two people! Without the package discount, our plane tickets would have cost $300 each!
Summertime in the Sierra Nevada
Summer is almost more fun than winter in the Sierras. All sorts of water sports are available and there is usually plenty going on in the way of music festivals, art shows and wine tastings. The Lake Tahoe Shakespeare festival happens over the summer as does the Truckee rodeo. More on the Truckee Rodeo.
(Not really...It's a bull ride at the Truckee Rodeo!)
Tahoe is Still Dog Friendly!
Tahoe Lake Cottages - Lets you bring your four legged friends. We stayed here just for that reason, and took the dogs along with us on our cross country ski day. Tahoe has a ton of vacation rentals, for both winter and summer! Here is a vacation rental in Tahoe Donner.
Naughty gangsters, some boys called Frank, Dean, Sam and Jack, a girl named Marilyn and the Lady of the Lake.
The north of the lake, around Kings Beach, has a few relics of the past.
One that I visited is the CalNeva Resort Hotel and Casino.
Nicknamed the "Lady of the Lake", The CalNeva was built in 1926. It has changed ownership several times over the years, and was even partially owned by Frank Sinatra from 1961 to 1963.
