Tahoe’s Best Things to Do This Winter 2014

    • Take a Hike

Huh? Yes, a hike does not always mean up the trail with a huge backpack and through the woods. Many Tahoe communities, like South Lake Tahoe and Tahoe City, have paths and walkways that make a day hike in the winter months a walk in the park. Lake Tahoe boasts over 300 days of sunshine every year, making it a mecca for incredible hiking no matter the season. Discover the wonderful world of Lake Tahoe hiking and enjoy the sunshine. Tip: Pack sunscreen. Sometimes winter sun can do even more harm to the skin!

    • Cast a Reel

Who says that fishing is a summer only sport? The fish are jumping and the Lake is calling, so get out and reel in some dinner. Sierra Fin Addicts and Tahoe Sport Fishing in South Tahoe are both open year round, so get out for a family fishing day, or perhaps a father/son experience. Sierra Fin Addicts provides the rods, the reels, the bait, and complimentary snacks and drinks! They will even fillet the fish. Hint: Bring a jacket. Winter is a wonderful time to fish, but it can get cold out on the Lake.

    • Relax at a Day Spa

A winter trip to Lake Tahoe means escaping the stress of everyday life, so go the extra mile and enjoy a day at the spa. There is no better place to enjoy spa treatment than the calming atmosphere of Lake Tahoe. Try Mountain Aloha Massage & Body Work in South Lake Tahoe for an incredibly relaxing escape. Hint: Try for a couples massage. Nothing is more romantic that rejuvenating with the one you love.
