There is still plenty of summer left, and plenty of great summer adventures and events to enjoy at Lake Tahoe.
The Lake Tahoe Summer Concert Series at Harveys Outdoor Arena has an incredible line up of Superstar performers. Plan your weekend to catch your favorite with Train appearing July 25, Journey and the Steve Miller Band on July 30, Boston and the Doobie Brothers August 3, and Aerosmith August 8.
July 25 and 26 you can also be a part of Hot August Nights, a car show and festival celebrating the musical and automobile culture of American past. For some its a trip down memory lane, for others a glimpse at the ‘good old days’ you’ve only heard about. Doo-wop music will fill the air and chrome will glisten in the summer sun, you may even see a poodle skirt or two.
If classic cars don’t get your motor running, then maybe you’d prefer to view boats on display at the South Tahoe Wooden Boat Classic. Enjoy live music, wine and food vendors along with vintage vessels. The glow of polished mahogany against the sparkling blue lake waters will inspire you to take to the water, so round out your weekend with a dinner cruise on the Tahoe Queen.
Its not too late to book your Lake Tahoe vacation!
If you think Lake Tahoe fun ends when the snow melts, think again. We’ve discovered some great fun ideas for enjoying Lake Tahoe this summer.
Kayak, Stand-up Paddleboards
A nice quiet way to get up close and personal with the lake. Recommended for those who are rather athletic, as it can be strenuous, but awesome fun. Local vendors have equipment for rent.
Sightseeing and Dinner Cruises
See the lake, from the lake! Choose your boat, and decide if you prefer a lunch-time sightseeing cruise, or a Dinner Cruise, with superior service while you enjoy the view of Lake Tahoe aboard a memorable paddlewheel boat.
Bring your own gear, or hire a local guide to take you to the “hot” spots. Anglers can hope to land Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Lake Trout, or Kokanee Salmon in this Alpine lake.
Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival
Enjoy the complete works of Shakespeare in this open air venue on the lake’s East shore. It’s a casual gathering, so bring your chairs, blankets, and snacks, although there are some food vendors. It gets chilly by the lake in the evenings, so bring warm clothes, and take in the sunset and some Shakespeare. Contact Sand Harbor State Park for details if you plan to attend this festival.
