Hurricane Bay, California, USA
The best way to see Lake Tahoe to get out on it, or in it. The crystal-clear waters make for beautiful float-seeing. Look for big boulders below you and scan the shoreline for hidden cabins and mansions you can't see from the road. Kayaking and...

Tahoe House is a wonderful bakery. It is a little out side of Tahoe City's main down town, and worth the extra step of getting there. My biggest dilemma at Tahoe house is deciding what to get as everything looks amazing and taste equally...

Located in North Tahoe, Cal Neva Resort at one point was a happening spot. Formerly owned by Frank Sinatra, this was the place that Frank and his Rat Pack would hang out at times. Occasionally even Marilyn Monroe would be spotted here. It's a much...

When my boyfriend and I are in Tahoe, we visit T's at least once a day for their chicken burritos. The rotisserie meat (the restaurant also serves pork and tri-tip) is fall-off-the-bone tender and tastes great after long days on the water. Order...

The almost century-old Fanny bridge in Tahoe City received its name (supposedly) from all the fannies that were visible to passers by when people stared at the blue-green waters. The traffic on the bridge is thick and while the bridge is quite...

Most people feel as though they've died and gone to photography Heaven when they visit Lake Tahoe, and I was one of them. Slivers of blue between the coniferous forest, striated clouds patching a brilliantly blue sky means there is more than the...

"Brunch Kayaking?" I almost gasped, and then ran straight into the kayak rental at Tahoe City to make sure I had read the board correctly. It turns out that Tahoe City Kayak, the best-known (and reasonable) kayaking outfit in the area does brunch...
12593 Donner Pass Rd, Truckee, CA 96161, USA
Every Californian knows the story of the Donner Party, the ill-fated emigrants who took what they thought was a shortcut while making their way westward from Illinois in 1846. Caught in a series of early-season snowstorms near Donner Pass, the...

Located in the Olympic House at Squaw Valley ski resort, Wildflour is a magical grab-and-go snack spot that is home to the world's best cookies. About 2 inches in diameter and an inch or so high, they're baked to perfection. Crispy, golden...

The Franciscan has a variety of lovely little cabins to choose from. These cabins are a nice alternative to hotels that lack the personal cozy feeling of home, or the larger vacation rentals that can come with a large price tag and I find ideal...

A meal at Vinny's is not only delicious, it is also friendly, local, and fun. The owners are the ones to greet customers and cook up signature pizza specials. We loved to pesto pizza, local talk, and trivia cards accompanying us at our table. The...
