Our Favorite Fall Activities in North Lake Tahoe
Explore the Great Outdoors
One of the best parts about being in North Lake Tahoe during the fall is that there are fewer crowds, meaning you’ll have entire trails or stretch of beach almost all to yourself! If you visit around mid-September, you’ll be able to enjoy the still-warm waters of Lake Tahoe and see the leaves around here start to change color. There is nothing quite like hiking through a forest of oranges, reds, yellows, and browns or spending time on a boat with a gorgeous view of the changing mountain scene. Are you planning on bringing your favorite puppy companion with you to explore the trails? Check out our many dog-friendly rentals!
