Best Fall Activities In Lake Tahoe

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

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

If it’s with your significant other or with the whole family, telling camp fire stories is a perfect way to end the day. Grab some gourmet s’mores from Sandy’s Pub and hot apple cider (add some cinnamon schnapps, yes I’m 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!

Top 5 Things To Do In Lake Tahoe Over Labor Day Weekend

The kids are ready, the car is packed, room reservations confirmed, and you've made your final Starbucks stop. The open road lies ahead and the promise of a fun family weekend away awaits. 

But one last thing...did you plan the activities? Whether you're a planner or a wing-it type of family, Resort at Squaw Creek's got you covered. Here are the top five FUN things to do this Labor Day weekend at Resort at Squaw Creek.

1. Bike to Tahoe City

Rent a bike from Squaw Creek's High Altitude Adventure sports department and you can cruise to Tahoe City along a paved bike trail that runs alongside the beautiful Truckee River. Mountain bikes are available for those who want a little more pep in their wheels.

2. Golf at Links at Squaw Creek

Golfing on Resort at Squaw Creek's golf course is an experience to remember. You'll be surrounded by the peaks of Squaw Valley and beautiful wooded hillsides, while playing our par-3 course. Keep an eye out for the wildlife who call the golf course home. Osprey, fox, deer, and finch are the most commonly seen residents. For lessons, call our pro shop at 530.581.6637.

3. Pool time!

Resort at Squaw Creek is truly an outdoor oasis for two reasons. A:) it's in Lake Tahoe, which is an outdoor-lovers dream. And B:) the six outdoor pools and hot tubs are called Oasis Pool Complex and come complete with an outdoor bar and grille, mountain views, a 120' waterslide, and a plethora of poolside recliners. Sit back, relax, and get that Pina Colada while the kids splash away.

4. Eat. Eat. Eat.

Traveling is for eating, don't you agree? Here's what you do at Resort at Squaw Creek: head to Sweet Potatoes Deli first thing in the morning for your Starbucks fix. Then, Cascades Breakfast buffet can make you a made-to-order omelette or you can opt for the million other breakfast options that they have. Then, Sandy's will serve you the best Chopped Salad you'll ever eat on their patio (sub in Salmon if you're a seafood lover - you won't regret it). To top off your day, head to Six Peaks Grille where you can sidle up to the bar for an herb-infused cocktail pre-dinner, and then indulge in a Filet Mignon, Steelhead Trout, or a salad made with fresh veggies from our garden. If you're doing the salad - may we recommend the Davis Bynum pinot noir.

Why finish with the Banana Cream Tart? Because you're on vacation. And plus, the kids ordered Chocolate Lava Cake and you don't want to share.

5. Work off the food...hike away

Hiking trails are plentiful in Lake Tahoe and there is truly a trail for every age and every ability. Take the resort's complimentary shuttle bus to the Village at Squaw Valley and walk over to the Shirley Canyon trailhead. It's about a 2.5 mile hike up to Squaw's High Camp and the Olympic Museum, summit views, and tram ride down are worth it. For shorter hikes, ask the resort concierge about Lake Tahoe's West Shore and all of the trails that line Emerald Bay.
