From the South to the North, these are the best things to do in Lake Tahoe, no matter what season you decide to visit.
Even though I grew up in California, only a few hours southwest of Tahoe, I didn’t visit Tahoe for the first time until I was 27. I had heard anecdotes about Tahoe trips throughout my childhood, but I somehow missed out on this California native rite of passage.
When I finally visited for the first time last year, I realized what all the hype was about. The lake was even more beautiful than the pictures made it seem, and the hushed natural scenery was an interesting juxtaposition with the casinos and busy streets of downtown South Lake Tahoe.

There are countless options for things to do in California. It’s a state that offers so much in terms of varied landscapes – from the desert to the beach, mountains, and redwood forests.
Having lived in California for 23 of my 28 years, there’s a lot I love about this place I most recently moved back to and now call home.
And I’m not alone. In the US, California has been the place to move to, a state of transfers and outsiders who come here for the high standard of living, the beautiful coastline, or maybe to make it big, either in Hollywood or the tech industry in Silicon Valley.
California is a place for laid back vibes, dreamers, and outdoorsy folk. Although there are a lot of stereotypes when it comes to California (and Californians), you can’t put the people or the landscape in a box, it’s much too varied.
