Lake Tahoe is the perfect place for a quick weekend getaway, and August is the perfect timing to visit because the town isn’t too busy but the weather is still amazing. From beach days to concerts, stunning hikes to gourmet dinners, South Lake Tahoe is the place to be if you need a break from back to school or for an end of summer vacation.
A family favorite day trip among locals and tourists would have to be going on a mansion tour. The Lake Tahoe shoreline hosts a multitude of magnificent mansions with tours operating daily. Vikingsholm is located in Emerald Bay State Park and boasts some of the most beautiful views of the bay and the surrounding mountains. Thunderbird Lodge (aka Whittell Estate) is located on the east shore, there are home tours daily between 11:30 am and 1 pm. Or located in the Camp Richardson area of the south shore you can take a tour of the Pope House, with a recommended donation, which is located at the Tallac Historic site, which is a free site to tour without entering the mansions.
There are summer concerts throughout the South Shore on almost any given night. A family favorite is the Live at Lakeview summer concert series which is put on every Thursday evening at El Dorado Beach/Lakeview Commons. There’s music, food, and vendors throughout the evening, as well as a free bike valet! Don’t forget to also check out the Summer Concerts that are always happening at Harvey’s Outdoor Arena! Slightly Stoopid, Dierks Bentley, Sammy Hagar and the Circle, and Dave Matthews Band will be finishing out this summers series!
