Everything you need to know for visiting North Lake Tahoe – things to do, where to stay, where to eat, best hikes, scenic views and so much more!
North Lake Tahoe is a nature lover’s paradise year-round, with a wealth of outdoor activities and opportunities to connect with nature. It’s also the place to catch fall colors in Northern California. We visited the first week of November and still managed to catch the tail end of the season.
Fall just might be the best season to visit Lake Tahoe. It’s between the busy summer and winter seasons, meaning traffic from San Francisco is almost nonexistent! It took about three hours to get there from the city. Off season also means it’s easy to get a table at some of the most popular restaurants and hotel prices take a dip. There was hardly anyone on the hikes we did and the beaches were nearly empty at sunset. If you’re lucky, you may even catch mild weather – it was in the high 60’s while we were there.
