We know Lake Tahoe has been hit the past few weeks with epic storms that have left a ton of snow, but we are already thinking about summer. Sure, the snow is beautiful and peaceful, but all this newest snowfall has us thrilled for a full lake, clear roads and sunny blue skies. Thinking about booking a vacation rental in South Lake Tahoe this summer? We have a few reasons why the mountains make for a great place to spend your summer vacation.
During the summer there seems to be an outdoor concert every night. Whether it is a major headliner, the Live at Lakeview or live bands at the farmer’s market or lakeside happy hours, you don’t have to go far to enjoy live music outside. This makes those lovely summer evenings feel festive without having to go far from your South Lake Tahoe vacation rental.
Adrenaline pumping activities
Mountain biking, hiking, trail running, paddle boarding, boating and water skiing are just a few of the things you can do during the day. The beauty of our vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe is that they are super close to these opportunities, regardless of where they are located.
South Lake Tahoe has started forming quite the beer loving scene. Whether you are staying at vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe near the Y, the Casinos or midtown, there are plenty of breweries with outdoor seating allowing you to relax and breathe in that mountain air.
Is there anything better than an outdoor happy hour with friends under the summer night sky after a long day of playing outside? Just like the countless outdoor breweries, we have restaurants offering burgers, pizza, charcuterie, Latin, sushi and more on a patio. If you are staying at a South Lake Tahoe vacation rental near the village, your kiddos can play Mini golf while you watch from Kalani’s. Or watch the Gondola go up and down the mountain from Fire & Ice. If you are staying at a vacation rental in South Lake Tahoe down by the Y, check out Ale Worx or Tahoe Pourhouse. The outdoor areas are combined and there is a stage for live music.
One of the best things about summer is the various Farmer’s Markets throughout the week. Ski Run has created what feels like a fun Friday Night block party. A few blocks are closed down, there is delicious food, local vendors, the nearby restaurants open their doors and it is about 4 hours of fun for the whole family. If you are looking at vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe and are thinking of staying in the Ski Run area, this is a great activity. There are a couple more local Farmer’s Markets during the week in various areas of South Lake Tahoe, so if you are staying at a South Lake Tahoe vacation rental in midtown or Meyers, you have options.
Whether you are looking for an action packed, wild whirlwind of a vacation or a relaxing, family getaway filled with quality time, the fresh air here in the Sierra’s is amazing. Not only does fresh mountain air have health benefits, it allows you to unplug and enjoy the present moment.
