Our visit to Lake Tahoe

We are so lucky to live so close to Lake Tahoe! {Only about an hour and a half drive}
We definitely don't take advantage of going as often as we should.
What makes Tahoe so beautiful {besides the lake & mountains} is all of the little villages & towns surrounding it.  Beautiful homes, hotels, & lodges, cozy restaurants, & the people are very friendly.
TL's mom invited us to come along with her and her friends for the night & it was fun!

TL and I ended up driving the long way to see them because it was a perfect sunny day to see the views of the lake. 
{the dog was up a little staircase off of one of the shops in Truckee}
{Downtown Truckee}

We rode our bikes around Incline Village & Donner Lake.  We also explored around Truckee & Northstar - all of the places are just gorgeous!

Who's been to Tahoe??
We can't wait to go back!

The boyfriend and I have been to Tahoe once or twice a year since we've been together. We usually go to South Shore though. He gambles and I shop - perfect situation!

I've been to North Shore a few times - it is absolutely gorgeous!

Anna Walker said...

Oh my gosh! That looks gorgeous! :D
I have never been to Tahoe, but it's where my parents went on their honeymoon, and my friend works in Truckee on her winter breaks! It looks sooo cute, and quaint and lovely with all the nature!

I LOVE Tahoe! I haven't been in years, but when my family went, it was one of the best trips we've been on.
Your pictures are absolutely gorgeous - and I loved seeing all the ones you took on Instagram (such a fun app!). I love how many little trips you and Tim take together - it's so fun to see what you two are up to, and how much you get out to do together! :)

Katie said...

Absolutely gorgeous there! Ahh! I haven't been but it's on my list :)

Laura said...

What a fun weekend! It looks so pretty up there!! The closest I've ever been to Tahoe is Mammoth- which I love and think is amazing...your pics are great!

I have never been but it looks absolutely gorgeous!

Shannon said...

I agree! We definitely don't take advantage as often as we should. I told Scott we need to start "exploring" the Sacramento/Tahoe/SF area more this summer. There's so much to do and as much as I love other places, like Santa Cruz and Tahoe and would love to live there, you can't get the best of all worlds anywhere else!
Great pictures!

Jamie Pickle said...

LOVE Tahoe, it is so pretty. I especially love the fresh air, stars at night and views of the lake/mountains. We have a cabin in Homewood, but don't get up there nearly as much as we would like.

Jessica said...

Yay, I love Tahoe! I'm going in August to see Miranda Lambert. Your picture of Emerald Bay is so pretty!

Lori said...

I've been to Tahoe! For our honeymoon a few (11!) years ago. Soooo beautiful. I remember our favorite places to eat were Sprouts and Fresh Catch. Wonder if they are still around? We want to go back too :)
