Best Fall Activities In Lake Tahoe

Pumpkin spice lattes, flannel, apple cider, and corn mazes are just a few things that remind us of fall. Lake Tahoe is a perfect time to come up and enjoy beautiful mountain surroundings, crisp autumn air, and fall foliage before they disappear. Here are the top things to do in Lake Tahoe during the fall:

Enjoy a hot apple cider or s’mores around the camp fire

Telling camp fire stories is a perfect way to end the day, no matter if it's with your significant other or with your whole family. Grab some gourmet s’mores from Sandy’s Pub and hot apple cider (add some cinnamon schnapps - yes we're talking to you, parents) and relax by the fire or just relish in the breath-taking views from the patio.

Spa Specials

Take advantage of the special spa deals during October at the Resort at Squaw Creek.  Relax with a day at the spa and book one of these treatments only offered during the month of October: Cashmere Quench Therapeutic Massage, Anti-Aging Pumpkin Purifying Facial or the Organic Cashmere Quench Body Wrap. They will leave you feeling rejuvenated and ready to take on your next adventure.

Ride your bike into town

Rent a cruiser or mountain bike from our High Altitude Adventure center and ride along the stunning Truckee river on a 6-mile bike ride (one way) into Tahoe City.  Experience the outdoors with fall foliage and the flowing river on a paved bike trail. Once in Tahoe City, you can view all the scarecrows on Parade outside the shops and vote for your favorite one (this is a kid's favorite)! Once you find your favorite scarecrow, enjoy a bite to eat at a lake front restaurant or catch a movie at the Art Haus.

Enjoy a Historical Haunted Tour

For your local insider scoop, Truckee offers an unforgettable Historical Haunted Tour in downtown Truckee. For participants 21+ you can have an evening filled with haunted tales performed by talented characters at 6 different locations, complete with laughs and cocktails. These tickets sell out quickly so make sure you grab one in advance.

Take a hike

Put on your cashmere and enjoy one of the many day hikes that Tahoe has to offer. With perfect weather for a hike during October, decide what kind of hike you would like to do if it’s with the family or your significant other: a challenging hike or just a simple walk in the woods. No matter what, Lake Tahoe has the perfect trail for you. We recommend D.L. Bliss state Park, or Fallen Leaf Lake, Skyline Trail and Mt. Rose. Whichever you decide, you will be happy you worked off that Pumpkin Spiced Latte.

You'rr running out of time before fall is over. What are you waiting for? Jump in the car and head up to Lake Tahoe!
