Ideas? April 19- 22nd! 2 year anniversary ideas.  (2 Answers)

Ok, so our first trip we had planned for a one yr anniversary got ruined so this year i need it to be special.

My Fiance and I are traveling to South Lake for our 2 year anniversary. We are on a tight budget and he has never been to that side of Tahoe, and Im not too familiar either. I need ideas!

We both enjoy thee forest areas, he is able to drink, but i am not so bars and night life arent the best.

We are really only looking to make memories not break the bank. I enjoy horseback riding and he enjoys going out and exploring. We both dont ski or snowboard, and arent interested either.

We are going in April on the 19th- 22nd. Right now all I have planned is visiting my favorite burger place from when I was younger, Burger Lounge, and MAYBE go to Zephyr Cove Stables. but that still leaves so much more time in the days we are there.

HELP ME? haha.

Tent camping near Lake Tahoe?  (5 Answers)

Hello, it has been a long time since I have visited this site. I a trying to plan a last minute camping trip for my family. I have 3 year old triplets, so I am concerned the camping in the lake area would be too cold at night for little ones. Are there places driving distance to the park and lake that are at a lower elevation, and thus, possibly not too cold. It looks like the overnight norms are around the low 40s near the lake. Thanks

Lake Tahoe need help with route  (9 Answers)

I arrive into SFO last week of August. Plan dividing my time between Lake Tahoe, and spending some time in Monterey/Carmel, returning to San Francisco for 1 or 2 overnights at end of journey. I have been to San Francisco 5 times and always enjoy walking across Golden Gate Bridge and walking in Golden Gate State Park. Need help planning easiest route as I normally travel Amtrak bus and train and want help traveling most direct way to avoid backtracking. What would be the easiest way to accomplish this, should I continue to Monterey/Carmel for first stop on day of arrival, which is a shorter journey if I get transportation. If so I could avoid having to pay for hotel. What is easiest route from Monterey up to Lake Tahoe, and will it require overnight stopover? If this is the case should I decide on hotel in Sacramento as have not been to that city even though I took a day trip to Lake Tahoe years ago and remember passing through. Would like to spend 1 or 2 nights in San Francisco at end of journey to enjoy the places I visited on earlier trips. I would also consider stopping off in new places if anyone can make good suggestions. Would like help if someone can recommend hotel in Lake Tahoe in convenient area where I can do hiking and nice scenic walks and take local bus or shuttle to other areas around lake. I will not be visiting casinos. I am active senior traveling solo and hope to get lots of help as I plan my travels. Many thanks to all.

North vs South Tahoe for couple in 20's  (7 Answers)

Hi...my boyfriend and I are planning a trip to California at the end of August...We are flying into Reno and spending a few days in Tahoe. I was wondering what area you would suggest for a 25&23 year old? A nice day for us would be relaxing by water, maybe jet-skiing or parasailing or something, a cheap/quick lunch, a cute dinner and maybe some drinks afterwards. I prefer to walk everywhere, if possible, but I do want the best views and scenery. Any thoughts/suggestions would be a huge help!

Also, what is the weather like end of August? And is the water swimmable?

Group ski travel planning, help!  (1 Answer)

My brain is spinning with so much Lake Tahoe info! If anyone can narrow the choices down for me (North vs South, which mountains) that would be great!

Looking to go in late February. We are a group of 8-12 people, some snowboarders, some skiers. 4-6 are beginner and 3-4 intermediate, 1-2 expert. All in early thirties. We would like some kind of group lodging, preferably ski in ski out. Would like to be in an area with lots of things to do so that if anyone chooses not to ski, can do other things (ie ice skate, sledding). Nightlife also a plus.

Basically, trying to find something that fits everyone!

Thanks!

Hello, I am planning an anniversary trip for my husband and I to SLT and am looking for a couples massage. I found the spa I would like to schedule at, A Body Renew Massage Spa and I have found ONE massage therapist that I have read great reviews about, Marla. I can't seem to find any reviews about any other therapists there that can provide the same quality of service as Marla (I'm sure they're all great, but we're splurging on this and I really want to get someone that is recommended from personal experience) - can anyone from the area recommend a second therapist for me please? Thank You!
