Five Awesome Tahoe Breakfast Spots

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.

This Weekend, Check Out the Coolest Golf Tournament Ever in Tahoe

Beer and Music Festivals in Tahoe This Weekend

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.

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

Nothing shouts 4th of July more than a day at the beach followed by a spectacular evening fireworks display over the water. Up in Tahoe, they've got that Independence Day tradition covered quite nicely.

Catch Free Live Music All Summer in Lake Tahoe

As the old song goes, the hills are alive with the sound of music. And folks around Big Blue are getting an earful. Regularly scheduled, outdoor live performances abound this time of year in the Tahoe area, and many of the bands serenade their audiences free of charge.

High Sierra Music Festival Brings Big Acts to the Mountains

Size isn't everything, and the High Sierra Music Festival can attest to that.

Sometimes referred to as "the greatest little festival, with the emphasis on little," the High Sierra Music Festival is returning for the 22nd straight summer to Quincy, about 90 minutes north of Truckee on Highway 89.

Star-Gazing in Tahoe

Star-Gazing in Tahoe

If you want to witness one of the greatest light shows around, just toss your head back and watch the night sky for a while. But since light pollution has made naked-eye star gazing in the urban areas a bit difficult, you have to head to the hinterlands (and by that, we mean Tahoe) to get a better look.

One great place is Northstar California resort, just outside Truckee, where a slew of star-gazing tours will take place on a weekly basis through the end of the summer.

Don't Have Tickets to the US Open? Catch the Action in Union Square

Don't Have Tickets to the US Open? Catch the Action in Union Square

All the big names in golf  – Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy and more – will be taking aim at one of the sport's major titles when the U.S. Open Championship begins a four-day run Thursday at the Olympic Club Lake Course in the southwest corner of San Francisco.

Tickets to the event are no longer officially available – US Golf Association officials declared the Open to be sold out yesterday, for the 26th consecutive tournament – but fans can get an almost "you are there" experience nonetheless by wandering over to Union Square during the four days of the championship.
