Morning-Go play outside
Wake up early and pick your poison for the next few hours. Whether you want to hop on first chair at Heavenly Ski Resort or go snow shoeing or cross country skiing right from the back door of your South Lake Tahoe vacation rental, you have plenty of options. Snow sports not your thing? That is ok! All of our vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe are conveniently located close to plenty of other activities. Hop on the Heavenly Gondola and ride up to the observation desk to check out our famous view. Or take a walk down to a local beach. We also have art galleries, ice skating, paint and sip, shopping, spas and more. If your time is limited, you can put in 2 to 3 solid hours and still be done by lunch time. Which leads us to….
Our vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe are located all throughout the South Shore, which means you have convenient lunch options just minutes away. If you are staying near Heavenly Resort or the village, Base Camp Pizza, Fire & Ice, Azul Latin Kitchen and California Burger Co are all super popular places to eat. If you are looking for something inside a casino, each one has plenty of dining options. If your vacation rental in South Lake Tahoe is located more in the middle of town or down by the Y, you have local favorites like the Keys Café, Freshies, Cold Water Brewery & Grill, MacDuff’s, Evans & Off The Hook.
Mid Afternoon-Still Plenty of Options
Once you are done with lunch, you can either go back to playing outside and exploring. If Emerald Bay Rd is open, take your camera and go snap some photos of one of the most photographed spots in the world. Or head back to the South Lake Tahoe vacation rental for some R&R before the evening. Our South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals feel like a retreat and several of them offer plenty of great entertainment options. From hot tubs to fully equipped game rooms, you can enjoy these features before venturing back out.
Evening-Dinner, Drinks & Entertainment
With all of our South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals located all throughout the South Shore, it makes it easy for our guests to have a wide variety of entertainment options. Several of the bars and restaurants feature live music in the evenings if you are looking for something lowkey. You can also easily take a cab from any vacation rental in South Lake Tahoe and get to the casinos and village for more entertainment options. The casinos offer the obvious gambling but usually there is something going on every night, like a local band, comedy act or magic show. Our best tip for this is to keep an eye on the local entertainment calendars to see what big acts are performing. The village offers a movie theatre as well as The Loft, which has weekly entertainment.
No matter where your South Lake Tahoe vacation rental is located, you have plenty of great activities to choose from, even if you only have 24 hours! For more recommendations, ask us at booking what we recommend based on your interests. We’d be happy to help!
