How to spend one more day in Lake Tahoe

If you are one of those Americans who leaves a few earned vacation days on the table every year, let us help you out. We have ten awesome ideas for how to spend one more day connecting with your family and friends, one more day taking care of yourself, or just one more day away from your workplace. Because you don't want to look back and say, "boy, I wish I would have spent one more day working."

1. Rent a boat and get out on Lake Tahoe. Then jump off the boat and go for a swim. D.L. Bliss State Park is a great spot for this. If you kayak south from the beach, look for the rope swing. Pull your kayak up onto a boulder, climb up the rope swing, and let loose. Repeat. Pure summertime freedom.

2. Explore one of the beaches on Tahoe's East Shore. Sand Harbor State Park and Nevada Beach State Park are both incredibly gorgeous with excellent swimming areas and magnificent views across the lake at the West Shore's massive peaks.  

3. Play another round of golf. North Lake Tahoe is chocked full of 18-hole championship golf courses. You need to play at least three rounds to get the full scope of High Sierra mountain golf.

4. Stay over Sunday night so you can rent a bike and cruise down to Tahoe City for the Sunday night free concerts at Commons Beach. Have a picnic dinner, dance a little, and then cruise back along the bike path.

5. Hike up to Shirley Lake from the base of Squaw Valley, take a dip, and then take the Aerial Tram back to the Village for happy hour.

6. Plan a getaway around one of the awesome summer festivals in the Village at Squaw Valley. Or come for the fun mid-week events, like Bluesdays, Truckee Thursdays, and the Outdoor Summer Movie Series.

7. Take a Family Fly Fishing Class with Matt Heron Fly Fishing right here at Resort at Squaw Creek.

8.  Explore the unique shops in Historic Downtown Truckee. Local artists are plentiful in the Tahoe area and this is a great place to find them! Plus, there are plenty of tasty spots to grab a bit to eat.

9. Take a mountain bike tour of Tahoe with Tahoe Mountain Guides. They can set you up with gear, and show you some of the best trails in the area while catering to your skill level.

10. Spent your whole trip outdoors? Treat yourself to a day at Spa at Squaw Creek to get all cleaned up, refreshed, and ready to go back to the rest of your life.

What would you do with one more day in Lake Tahoe?

Coming to North Lake Tahoe for a "race-cation"

Yes, North Lake Tahoe is one of Northern California's best beach destinations in summertime. But becoming even more popular for individuals and groups of friends are weekend "race-cations" focused on the big event weekends like IRONMAN and the USA Cycling Championships.

Amateur athletes have always traveled to compete in events, and with North Lake Tahoe hosting more of them each summer, Resort at Squaw Creek is becoming a second home for athletes in training. 

The USA Cycling National Championships roll into town June 24 - 28, 2015. Individual time trials, tandem time trials, a criterium, and road races will be held all over the region during the course of the five day event. Cyclists will not only be in town for race weekend, but many will come for training weekends to get familiar with the destination and the altitude. At over 6,000 feet above sea level, Lake Tahoe presents a unique challenge to athletes from other parts of the country. 

Considered one of the toughest events on the circuit, IRONMAN Lake Tahoe tests the limits of every athlete who participates. With a swim, bike, and run, IRONMAN Lake Tahoe touches every part of the destination. The course moves through some of the most gorgeous scenery in Northern California. Training weekends are a big part of success in IRONMAN, because if the scenery doesn't take your breathe away, the altitude will.

Athletes are always welcome to stay at Resort at Squaw Creek - a perfect home base from which to train in the area. Miles of road cycling and running trails start right from our door, and Lake Tahoe is a short drive (or bike/run) for open water swim practices. On-site restaurants and suites with kitchens mean you don't need to over-complicate your weekend with reservations or finding a place to eat on Yelp. And the full service Spa at Squaw Creek is the ultimate place to recover from your workouts. 

Plus, we offer a full compliment of Four Diamond amentities to keep your friends and family entertained while you train. They'll be waiting for you at the finish line.

Trail Running season is underway in North Lake Tahoe

With spring already here, and summer close behind, the trail running season in Lake Tahoe is already well underway. 

Spring and summer races will be here before you know it. Add a little high altitude training to your workout to get a leg up on your competitors - or just get your heart racing a little faster.

The trails that surround Resort at Squaw Creek are legendary among trail runners and ultra runners alike - the Western States trail leaves practically from our doorstep. The paved Truckee River trail is another you can jump on straight from the resort - a level 8 miles to Tahoe City along the river. Other gorgeous trails, like the Rubicon trail along Lake Tahoe to Emerald Bay, or the Burton Creek trail are close by.

Competitive runners should check out the Tahoe Trail Running series. With 11 events that span early June through late September, the series offers runs from 5k to 50k. All levels of athletes are welcome. 

And when you're back from your run, check out the Sports Massage at Spa at Squaw Creek - designed to help flush impurities, stretch tight muscles and aid in speedy recoveries. Excellent right before or after exercise.
