Anyone who has visited Lake Tahoe's beaches at the height of summer knows the drill: Get up early for a parking spot, and get ready for crowds.
An outdoor meal and a frosty drink in the mountains during summer become even better when partnered with some free, live music. This summer in Lake Tahoe, several restaurants and communities will be offering free tunes along with their menus and beer gardens. Cheers!
If you are heading up to Lake Tahoe for the weekend you might not have the time for a 15 or 20 mile hike (like the one from Echo Lakes to Desolation Wilderness at 14 miles round trip). You might also not want to deal with the sore muscles and feet afterwards. However, Tahoe does have a nice selection of great hikes that are less than five miles round trip allowing you to get in some more beach time.
Wanderlust, the world's largest and fastest-growing yoga and music platform (which was started in Squaw Valley, California and expanded to seven locations around the world) will go down July 18-21, 2013 at High Camp and the village. But for yoga-philes who need their fix in Tahoe year-round, the festival will also open up a permanent yoga studio at the resort in late June.
The Memorial Day Weekend is the official kickoff time for summer up at the lake.
Based on how many brides you see on the beaches of Lake Tahoe during the summer, the mountain lake has got to be one of the most popular places to get married in California, if not the country.
