I am still on a high from our fun vacation to Lake Tahoe last month. I loved how far removed I felt from everyday life and my daily routine. I swear, I almost forgot what real life was like!
Getaways benefit our health in numerous ways, most significantly, they bust stress and give us something to look forward to. If you haven’t been to Lake Tahoe, I highly recommend booking a trip. It’s beautiful and there are tons of fun things to do!
Check Out the festivals Made in Tahoe Festival ~ live music, food, local vendors of local artisans, kids zone with paint ball, wall climbing and more. Jazz & Funk Festival ~ entrance fee benefits the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe, Art, Wine & Music festival, the Shakespeare, the Wanderlust Festival & more
Go River Rafting
Take a Gondola Ride Most of the ski resorts offer rides up the mountain during the summer, the view is spectacular & once you get to the top you can hike, river raft, zip line & more
See a Show Imagine Dragons, Dave Matthews Band & Elton John are all playing at Harvey’s in South Lake Tahoe this summer
Take an Ariel Tram Ride
Camp Not my cup of tea but I seem to be in the minority. If I ever end up in the woods for 3 days that means I’ve been dead for 2 of them
Cruise the Lake Emerald Bay Sightseeing Cruise, Tahoe Queen Dinner Cruise, Tahoe Queen Emerald Bay sightseeing cruise & M.S. Dixie II Emerald Sunset Dinner Dance Cruise are some popular cruises
Golf & Miniature Golf if you’re traveling with kids
Do yoga There are many free classes including Squaw Valley’s ‘Yoga Squawed’ that offers some free classes
Feel the need for speed Few things are more exhilarating than a speed boat ride
Snow Ski! If you head there in the winter, this is obviously the thing to do. They have awesome ski resorts ~ Heavenly Valley, Diamond Peak, North Star, Squaw Valley, Kirkwood, Alpine Meadows
Rollerskate at the rink in North Star. The kids can have fun while you enjoy some vino. If you’re like me, you’ll hit the rink too 🙂

Hit The Ca$inos
Bike along the Truckee River
Catch a flick at Squaw Valley’s free outdoor movie series
Visit New Moon Natural Foods Ok, this doesn’t really qualify as ‘fun’ but if you’re like me & in search of healthy food, stop by & grab a pint of they’re delicious 7 seed salad. Oh I wish I could find that salad around here, or at least get the recipe!
Have little ones? Take them to the KidZone Museum in Truckee
Parasail! The view of the lake is breathtaking
Hang glide and soar over the gorgeous lake
