Here’s a throwback Thursday post if I ever met one. Before the craft show marathon I got to meet up with my parents for a quick weekend getaway. Here’s a 24-hour guide to Lake Tahoe!
Visit Tahoe City.
Enjoy shops, foods, and lake views. On our stroll I spotted a couple of cute boutiques. I visited a home goods store – Pineapple.
Plus a handmade gift shop – Tahoe Trunk Show. They carry items made by California and Nevada makers.
We headed down to the lake for waterside photoshoots and serene scenes.
For lunch, we enjoyed sushi at Tahoe City Sushi. They served us free sake!
And we found the Ursa Mater, bear of pennies! This piece is on display now thru July 31, 2019.
Go be fancy.
In the evening, we lounged at the Ritz-Carlton because my parents are fancy. What’s nice is that the hotel is non-guest and family friendly. Outside, there’s bocce, views of the slopes, horseshoes, and fire pits; and inside, lots of seating for gathering with friends.
We had dinner at the hotel restaurant, Manzanito. Those potato leek rolls!
Afterwards, we looked up and saw So. Many. Stars. My wish for 2019 is to learn how to spot constellations.
The next day we watched the sun rise. Sunrise is always magical for me!
Drive around the lake.
On our way back home, we drove on the Nevada side of the lake and stopped at various photo and food ops along the way.
We stopped at Zephyr Cove Beach and in South Lake Tahoe for snacks, caffeine, and a brief watercolor session. Plus, I made a pit stop to a nearby yarn store. More on that later.
This was my first Fall trip to Tahoe; it was beautiful and so relaxing! Where are some of your quick getaway stops? Share below!
