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?

Things to do over Memorial Day weekend in North Lake Tahoe

Memorial Day weekend is the official start of summer in North Lake Tahoe and there is plenty to do at the Resort at Squaw Creek to kick things off.

The Links at Squaw Creek opens for play on May 20. Tee times are just $59 and the course is in great shape. Nike rental clubs are available in the golf shop. 

Six Peaks Grille opens for the summer with a seasonal menu, signature cocktails, and the first of our 25th Anniversary mixology dinners on May 24.

The Made in Tahoe Festival at Squaw Valley features dozens of local artisans, food vendors, and musicians. 

When you're not out and about, there are plenty of family friendly activities to keep you busy right here at Squaw Creek. 

The fly fishing is terrific right now - learn a new sport with Matt Heron Fly Fishing. Cast in our two private ponds or venture out onto local waters.

Celebrating Mother's Day in Lake Tahoe

This Mother's Day, treat the mom in your life to a sumptuous brunch with bottomless mimosas, then send her to the spa to relax for the afternoon.  

Our family brunch includes all the traditional favorites like house-made pasteries, eggs benedict, and made-to-order omelets, plus our signature California breakfast bar with house-made granola, seasonal fresh juices, and other healthy options.

All mothers can enjoy complimentary bottomless mimosas during the brunch. Dads can choose from the make-your-own Bloody Mary bar, or join mom for a mimosa. Kids love to mix and match the seasonal juices (and sometimes even sneak a little extra candy from the top-your-own-waffle bar).

After brunch, send mom to the Spa at Squaw Creek for a little pampering. All treatments are 20% off. After an afternoon relaxing in the Sanctuary and enjoying a massage, facial, or skin treatment, she'll feel rejuvinated and ready for another year of being a mom.

Call the Spa to book a treatment at 530.583.6300 and mention the Spring Spa Sale to save 20%.
