Tahoe

Our Favorite Tahoe Watering Holes

A trip up to Lake Tahoe is generally an active one. The expansive mountain terrain, the shimmering lake, the crisp alpine air all beckon a visitor to come outside and do something.

But there comes a time when you all you want to do is kick back and relax – preferably with an ice cold adult beverage close at hand – and reflect on your adventures. The following are five establishments that cater perfectly to your post-recreational leisure time.

Ditch the Car and Hop Onto the North Lake Tahoe Water Taxi

Ditch the Car and Hop Onto the North Lake Tahoe Water Taxi

One of the least appetizing things about a summer sojourn in North Lake Tahoe is having to use a car to get to everything that lines the mostly two-lane highway that stretches from Tahoma to Kings Beach. The traffic sometimes can be brutal, and that's even without any road construction going on. Cycling is great... until you find yourself with an armload of bags on the return trip.

When asked to join a Truckee rafting trip with Tahoe's Irie Rafting Company in June, I conjured up fond memories of floating lazily  down the river in an inner tube with PBR in hand. Little did I know that I had signed myself up for a white water rafting adventure instead.

Five Great Tahoe Burger Joints

Five Great Tahoe Burger Joints

Man does not live by bread alone, the philosopher once wrote. You've gotta throw in a half-pound of ground meat, some cheese, lettuce, pickles and other accoutrements of the all-American hamburger to really make things come alive. Add some fresh mountain air into the mix, and well, you've practically attained Nirvana.

There are plenty of places around Tahoe to grab a burger, big and juicy notwithstanding. But there can only be so many great places, and the five establishments that follow easily fall into that category.

Where to Watch 4th of July Fireworks in Lake Tahoe
