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.
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.
People come to the Tahoe area for a million reasons– its world-class skiing and snowboarding resorts, its mountain biking terrain, its vista-strewn hiking trails, its top-notch golf courses, its abundant lake and stream fishing, or to laze away the day, sitting lakeside in a beach chair.
But these varied visitors all have one thing in common: They need a decent breakfast to get them through their daily Big Blue adventures. Here are five suggestions on where to get a great start on your day in Tahoe.
If swinging guitars and adult beverages sound like a fine combination, then Squaw Valley and Northstar resorts have just what you are looking for this weekend.
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.
