Tahoe locals have been protecting a little known fact about vacationing in Tahoe. Shh, don't tell anyone, but fall is the best time of year for your vacation! Here's why:
5 Reasons to Visit Lake Tahoe in the Fall
#1 It's Generally Less Crowded
After Labor Day, Tahoe returns to its quiet slumber. It's the perfect time to escape the crowds. Traffic is gone, restaurant orders are quicker, and you get the beach all to yourself. There's nothing like taking a paddle on the lake and not having to worry about all the motor boats buzzing by, or going for a hike when no one is on the trail.
#2 It's Not as Hot
Temperatures continue to be warm enough for a swim during the day, but in the evening it's cool enough to start a fire and drink hot cocoa (or perhaps a hot toddy is more to your liking). When the lake temperature dips below your comfort level for a swim, you can still enjoy many of our trails for mountain biking or hiking, or take a casual bike ride down the paved bike path without the crowd.
#3 The Aspen Groves are Glowing
Taking a scenic drive to see all the beautiful yellow aspen trees amidst the green forest is always a good time too.
#4 There Are Still Plenty of Outdoor Activities to Enjoy
From golfing and biking to hiking and exploring local state parks, Lake Tahoe is brimming over with outdoor activities and attractions to enjoy.
