    Hi all,

    My husband and I are considering a trip to Lake Tahoe next month - no kids!  (grin).  We'll be making the long 12-hour drive from our home, so can be pretty flexible.  Looking for some input on places to stay - or not - and places to see.  I haven't been to the area since I was about 12.  I ski, but he does not, so we'll be looking to do some snow shoeing, or maybe cross-country skiing.  Other than that, taking photographs, reading, relaxing.  I can't wait!

    Love to hear what you all have to say - thanks!

    I go there every summer and one of the things I like to do is rent cabins, there are some very good listing services online that you can use . They offer very simple 1 room condos to outrageous mansions. Just do a google search, I feel for the price of a hotel its always much more fun to stay in a cabin with a view. I also like to do the snowmobile trails and/or Atv depending on the season.

    Thanks Las Vegas,

    A cabin sounds ideal!  I was hoping to sort through all the ads/info I'll get with a Google search and see what people have to say about specific placees to stay.  It is such a beautiful spot.  I'll bet its hard to go wrong.

    Thanks - Steph

    Oh man, too bad I was too late with this thread.  My family goes there every year (and my wife and I went there last year).

    I was actually considering doing a hub on Lake Tahoe- I've got a TON of pictures.  While we were there I even came face to face with a wild bear!  I took photos of him charging at me, eating out of the trash can, etc.  Well, I thought my camera was having issues when it took like 3 seconds to snap the photos and much to my dismay I later found out that's because I had it on the "film" setting.  So yeah, the pictures were really short 1-second movie clips that took place 3 seconds later than I wanted them to!

    I might just have to write that hub, though.

    Tahoe in Nevada, great place to spend quality time with your love ones:
    Great attractions like skiing in Heavenly Valley and Squaw Valley
    Entertainment in Harrah's Casino and Live Shows.
    You can also go sightseeing over Emerald Bay, Reno and Virginia City.

    I've only stayed on the South Shore on the California side camping.  Absolutely beautiful.  Just remember that at the elevation and time of you are traveling it can get pretty cold at night... even snow.

    Have fun.

    I went there once when I was younger with my parents. It is GORGEOUS! Very nice and a perfect place for some romantic couple time. smile I don't remember where we stayed and all that. all I can remember is the lake and how blue it is.

    Oh and WeddingConsultant, do write the hub. I wanna see pictures and read your hub about Lake Tahoe. big_smile

    You probably won't take any notice of a kiwi giving advice on US venues... but For better value I have found that there are many better options (cabins etc) in places like Lake Donner and Soda Springs areas, in both summer & winter.

    Just a few mins drive from Tahoe; you get the best of both worlds and you don't have to always be looking over your shoulder to see where your Godfather is! smile
