Sierra's Travel Tips for Lake Tahoe

What are the best places to eat and drink in Lake Tahoe?

Tahoe House Bakery for yummy sugar cookies shaped like bears and the lake!

What are the best things to do in Lake Tahoe?

Our favorite hidden gem is the beach at Hellman-Erhman Mansion in Sugar Pine Point State Park on the west shore. The water is incredible for swimming and water rentals, the grassy area is perfect for picnicking and frisbee, the trails are great for strolls, and it is jam packed with history.

What is the best tip for travelling with kids to Lake Tahoe?

Lake Tahoe is perhaps our children's very favorite place to go on vacation! Whether you hike to Eagle Rock for the views, swim in the gentle wakes at Zephyr Cove, pick up ice cream at Camp Richardson, bike along the East Shore trail, or kayak at Sugar Pine State Park, your kids are sure to be in heaven. The area is camping, hotel and Airbnb friendly, so accommodations are available no matter what your vacation style. Tahoe is bear country though! You won't want to leave any crumbs in your tent or a half eaten cracker in your car, or you'll likely find yourself with an unwanted visitor.

Try all kinds of different foods and get to hiking spots early! There are absolutely stunning views around the area but it’s best to catch them before large crowds come out.

Hike Eagles Rock on the West Shore. Its easy enough for kids - and the view from the top is breathtaking. Bring some snacks from West Shore Market with you, so that you can have a picnic amongst the pines.

Joey's Travel Tips for Lake Tahoe

What is your best overall travel tip for Lake Tahoe?

If you’re going to ski or snowboard, definitely stay at the Ritz Carlton Truckee. It’s so convenient since they are located right next to Northstar. Their mountain concierge helped setup all our equipment rental and we can get on the lift right outside the hotel. There’s also a gondola that takes you to Northstar Village every 10 minutes.

Supicha's Travel Tips for Lake Tahoe

What is your best overall travel tip for Lake Tahoe?

The touristy part of Lake Tahoe is in the South Lake Tahoe area where there are a lot of restaurants, shops, ski resorts, and casinos. It gets pretty chilly there in September so make sure you bring a coat to wear in case the temperature drops. Our photographer, Carly, told us it snowed 4 inches the week before we visited (we were there on September 30th) so snow came very early this year.

We travelled to Lake Tahoe as part of a west coast USA road trip and would highly recommend it! It is beautiful! We also stayed in north Lake Tahoe which was much more quiet!
