When I was growing up, I spent many summer vacations at Lake Tahoe's Sand Harbor State Beach. It was my home away from home and something we always looked forward to as kids.
I've compiled a list of must do's in Tahoe so get some peeps together and take a ride!
*Numero uno is lunch at Gar Woods but don't plan on doing anything else that day if you go for the Wet Woody pitcher. It will knock you on your bum.
*Lakeshore Blvd driving through Incline and admiring all the huge "Cinderella houses" (as my sister and I like to refer to them).
*Sand Harbor State Park- White sand beaches, clear blue waters, sunburns, childhood memories. Hands down my favorite place. Get there early in the a.m. to secure a good beach spot!
*The 'nudey' beach as our parents liked to call it. Just down the highway from Sand Harbor, you can reach it by boating in or hiking in. Not much experience here except for a quick drive by in the boat, though dad never let us get too close to the beach, lol!
*Emerald Bay- if you are in the car, get out and do some rock climbing and take some pics. Much better to boat in. Its crowded on a good day but well worth it. Lunch, drinks, swimming = good times.here except for a quick drive by in the boat, though dad never let us get too close to the beach, lol!
*Gambling, eating, drinking in South Shore. Little too touristy and crowded for my taste.
*Fire Sign Cafe for cheesey gouda eggs and hashbrowns!
*Sunnyside Restaurant & Lodging good eats and drink, but super crowded on the deck during the summer. Private beach and docks, spent many hours sunburning on a raft in the water..
*Rafting down the Truckee river from Tahoe City to Squaw Valley...looks cold. brr
