If you are familiar with our beautiful lake in the sky, you may wonder why anyone would even need a reason to visit Lake Tahoe? If you are not familiar, let us list the reasons why you should visit and book a South Lake Tahoe vacation rental this summer.
- The Lake
Let’s be honest, the lake draws about 3 million visitors alone. Even if water sports are not your thing, the sheer beauty and size of it is breath taking, even to the most city person you know. It looks like it has layers of blue depending on the depth and the clarity seems to be crystal. During the summer, you can sit on the beach and take it all in or you can get out there and surf, swim, paddle board or just cruise. Plenty of our South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals are within minutes of popular beaches, making it easy to access the main draw that millions come to see each year.
- The Mountains & Trails
Whether it is winter or summer, the mountain views are just stunning. In and around the basin, there are 16 resorts. While skiing is usually not option in the summer, a lot of the resorts open up their summer recreation. You can simply take the gondola up to the view deck, go mountain biking, hiking or check out one of the day adventures Vail has set up for those warm weather visitors. Our South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals are all located close to Sierra, Kirkwood and Heavenly. If you want to hit a trail right outside your door, Lake Tahoe has an endless amount of trails winding its way around the lake.
- The Weather
You know that famous saying “Don’t like our weather, wait 5 minutes”? Sometimes we think Lake Tahoe was the location that forced that saying. The good news is that no matter what season, Tahoe rarely gets too hot or too cold. We can have some chilly winters, but because it is a dryer climate, it isn’t bone chilling. In the summer, the temps are usually around 80 and dip down to 40 at night, which means you don’t have to worry about trying to sleep in a muggy room. We also get about 274 days of sun each year, which means that you can usually count on beautiful, sunny weather.
- The Locals
If you have never booked a South Lake Tahoe vacation rental before, we’d highly recommend it and not just because that is what we do! This town oozes small town charm with laid back, friendly folks who aren’t afraid to make small talk or say hello. We are all on Tahoe Time, which means no one is too busy to be kind. When you book a vacation rental in South Lake Tahoe, you see even more of that kindness from your neighbors. So long as you are courteous of course. Loud parties, leaving trash about and parking all up and down the street won’t impress them, but as long as you follow the ordinance, you may find yourself some new friends!
- The Homes
There is a variety of properties available throughout the area from classic cabins to modern cabins to new construction to large estates with lake views. Some homes are built into the natural elements and feature boulders and trees inside the homes. If you are looking for a true home away from home, a vacation rental in South Lake Tahoe is a great choice. You not only get to pick your location, but also your amenities!
5.) The Events
Summer at the lake features no shortage of farmers markets, live concerts, big festivals, fundraisers, athletic races and more. Our big headliners are usually during the Celebrity Golf Classic in July which fills the town with famous celebrities and athletes. There really is no shortage of things to do and see. Just be sure to check out the event calendars to see what is happening so you can plan accordingly before you come!
