5 Reasons to Travel to Lake Tahoe in Summer
Discover Lake Tahoe's summer delights. We've put together a quick hot list of reasons to choose Tahoe for your annual mid-year getaway.
Outdoor Shakespeare -
Every summer, the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival brings top-quality drama to the resort. More specifically, visitors can watch one major production (and touring musicals) at a beautiful outdoor theater in Sand Harbor, right next to the lake itself.
Renaissance Faire -
Lake Tahoe stages some excellent Renaissance-themed events throughout the summer season, allowing guests to dress up as wenches or knights, watch jousting, listen to minstrels, and generally have a great time. The Valhalla Faire is probably the most popular.
- Above all, people visit Lake Tahoe for, well, the lake. Visitors can hire kayaks or jet skis, strap themselves in for some wakeboarding, take water skiing lessons, or just chill out during a week of tranquil fishing. If you love to get out on the water, Tahoe is unbeatable.
- July's American Century Celebrity Golf Championship is one of the most enjoyable events around. Attracting sporting giants like Charles Barkley, Reggie Bush, and Roger Clemens, it's excellent autograph hunting territory, and a light-hearted feast of golf at a pretty high standard.
- When the sun shines, Tahoe becomes a superb spot for al fresco dining, and there are plenty of acclaimed eateries within a mile or two of the lakeshore. Squaw Valley's bistros and alehouses offer a nice mix for evening recreation, while restaurants open up onto the lake at Sunnyside. There's no more enjoyable dining experience in the mainland USA.
