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.

Shake It Up at Squaw Creek's Summer Cocktail Hour,

We all know the feeling, a refreshing splash of fizz hitting your tongue after you just hiked 5 miles in the sun, and the comforting sip of whiskey as you sit on the deck, remembering your day. Whatever your libation, and whatever your salvation, a Tahoe day is full of adventure and you've earned your cocktail prize by the end of it.

Resort at Squaw Creek's Summer Mixology Cocktail Series provides guests with a fun Tahoe experience. We're serving both new and classic cocktails that use fresh herbs grown right here in the beautiful Lake Tahoe sunshine.

All you have to do is arrive at happy hour time and our renowned mixologist will teach you how to muddle, crush, and infuse different kinds of flavors and spirits...and then shake things up and have you try it too. Remember this: the best way to learn to make a cocktail is to taste test.

So "taste test" away and join us for a unique cocktail crafting and culinary treat at Six Peaks Grille, the resort's fine dining restaurant, on Saturday, August 13, 2016 from 5 pm - 6 pm. Small plates will be served throughout the event, you can enjoy dinner in the restaurant after.
