Lake Tahoe, California (PRWEB) May 24, 2013
The temperature is warming up in Lake Tahoe, so there’s no better time to visit for the unofficial summer celebration. VirtualTahoe.com suggests Memorial Day weekend as the prime time to visit the lake and take advantage of the all of the fun activities Tahoe has to offer. This holiday weekend, honor fallen troops at a commemorative service, celebrate Opening Day at the lake, and spend the weekend getting back into all those summer sports that were forgotten about during the winter months.
Opening Day at the Lake
Lake Tahoe is jammed packed with fun things to do during Opening Day at the Lake. Swing by some of Tahoe’s hot spots and receive passport stamps for each visit. The Gatekeepers Museum, Ehrman Mansion, and the Tahoe City Marina are just a few of the many Tahoe locations passing out stamps. Rack up at least ten stamps and qualify for prizes, raffles, and discounts at local Tahoe businesses such as the Lighthouse Spa, Jake’s on the Lake, Vikingsholm, and more.
Tahoe also features tons of lakeside events for the whole family to take part in during the holiday weekend. From live music and patio openings, to scavenger hunts and tours, there’s plenty of things to do in Tahoe to celebrate the unofficial summer kickoff. Join the restaurant patios and tour companies as they open their doors to the warmer weather and welcome Tahoe visitors and guests to ring in the upcoming summer months.
Come Memorial Day weekend, cyclists can carve up the newly opened Tahoe bike trails while water skiers can glide on the lake. Bike trails have opened and boating season has begun in Lake Tahoe. No bike and no boat? Don’t worry, Tahoe offers numerous bike shops and boat rental shops where visitors can find the mountain bike and speed boat rentals of their dreams.
Looking for a slightly calmer way to spend the weekend? Various Tahoe golf courses open up for the season on or before Memorial Day. Squaw Creek Golf Course, Old Green Golf Course, and Tahoe Donner Golf Course in particular will be open Memorial Day weekend for eager golfers to hit the greens. Book a tee time or schedule lessons, and spend the long weekend putting away with stunning views of the Sierras.
