The Ultimate Weekend Travel Guide to Lake Tahoe South – Simply Taralynn
Where to Eat / Where to Stay / What to do


Writing these “Ultimate Travel Guides” has quickly become one of my favoriteย series on the blog. Being able to share my experience and relive it through the photos is so much fun. I hope you’re ready for the California series that’ll be popping up all over the blog this month. And since I like to do things in order, I’m starting with my weekend in Lake Tahoe! Thisย destination was the spot that kicked off the fun adventure, and it’s the perfect place to spend the weekend with a group of friends.

And just like my other travel guides, I’ll be including a fun giveaway to share a piece of my travels with you!ย Lake Tahoe South, Travel Blog, Simply Taralynn, Travel Blogger, Traveling, Blog, Travel, Mountains, Edgewood Bistro, California, Nevada, Summer, Trips, Traveling to Tahoe, Lake Tahoe, Where to eat, drink, stay, boating, see, things to do in Lake Tahoe, summer in lake tahoe
I loved Lake Tahoe so much that I have already started planning a trip there next year with Kyle. It’s one of those places that you leave wishing you had more time there. When you travel with a group of people, it’s a bit harder to fit in everything you want to do, so I’ll need to spend an entire week there so I can visit the whole lake.

Our trip was very relaxing. We spent a night cooking at the house, a couple of nights trying new restaurants, boating, hanging around the beach, and we even brought the house down at a karaoke bar ๐Ÿ˜†ย  (please refer to video) Lake Tahoe is for any type of traveler. Whether you like camping, hiking, boating, shopping, dining, casinos, bike riding, fishing…you get it. They have just about any activity for any lifestyle.

After getting off the plane, picking up the rental car, and driving 50-minutes to Lake Tahoe, we were ready for a good lunch. I had eyeballed Driftwood Cafe online months in advance because I saw that it was close to where we were staying, and the food looked fantastic. They had vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free options available. Half of the group ate vegetarian, gluten-free or dairy-free, so it was nice having options for everyone.

DRIFTWOOD CAFE

I ordered their tuna salad without swiss cheese. It came with raisins, tomatoes, romaine, slivered almonds, and tuna salad on top. Their vinaigrette dressing stole the show. The salad was fresh and hit the spot. You can also order their tuna salad on gluten-free bread, which is what I brought Caitlin after finishing her half. I can’t let their coffee go unmentioned. I’m always picky about my coffee, but theirs was fantastic. If you’re looking for a smoothe medium-dark roast to spice up your day, their coffee will do the trick.

It made the most sense for the ten of us. The location was perfect! We had two pools, a hot tub, a private beach with a dock, fire pit for roasting smores, parking, enough rooms for everyone, and it was close to everything in town.

LAKELAND RESORT – AIRBNB

On the first night, we figured everyone was going to be a bit jetlagged and tired from traveling, so we stayed in and had a taco night. One of the benefits of staying at an Airbnb is that you can cook your meals, make your drinks, and with a group of ten, that’s a lot of money saved. The place we stayed at was called Lakeland Resort, and if you look it up on Airbnb, so many units from the resort will pop up. This was a very laid back place to stay, and if you have a big group that likes to have fun, this is the place for you! The inside of our condo was cozy and had the whole mountain camp vibe, which was perfect for a weekend in Tahoe.

BEST PLACE TO STAY FOR A COUPLES GETAWAY

If you are looking for a place to stay for a couple’s getaway, I would 100% recommend staying at Edgewood Tahoe. We spent some time there at brunch, drinks at sunset, and the views were breathtaking. The pool was right by the lake, and the staff wasย friendly. That is where Kyle and I are staying next year, for sure. There are more photos and details about Edgewood Tahoe later in this guide.

TACO NIGHT DETAILS

When you’re cooking for a large group, tacos are always a good idea. We made regular beef tacos, tofu & black bean tacos, had vegan cheese, regular cheddar cheese, lettuce, peppers and onions, corn tortillas, guacamole, salsa, and homemade margaritas!

HOMEMADE SKINNY MARGARITAS

In the blender, we added tequila, fresh lime juice, lime seltzer, jalapenos, and ice! Not going to lie, they were good with lemon Sour Patch Kids floating around. Don’t @ me until you try it. ๐Ÿ‹

It was breathtaking. Imagine being able to spend an entire summer here? Since I had a lot of questions in my DM’s while I was on this trip, I decided to include some frequently asked questions in this guide! I had a hard time keeping up with social media while I was away, but I didn’t want to leave the questions unanswered. Plus, it’ll be helpful if you’re planning a trip to Lake Tahoe in the future!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do you get to Lake Tahoe?
If you’re flying in, you’ll most likely want to book a flight to Reno Nevada, rent a car, and drive to Lake Tahoe. If you don’t want to rent a car, there are shuttles you can hop on provided by the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, which was what a lot of our group did to get back to the airport on Monday morning. If you’re staying at a hotel, chat with them about complimentary shuttles they may offer with your stay.

Is the water cold?
Unbelievably cold. When you’re on the beach near the shore, it’s not as bad, but if you’re out on the boat, you have to wear a life jacket because your body can go into shock. When your body goes into shock from being so cold, you can drown. Cold water shock is one of the most common water-related deaths in Lake Tahoe each year. ย Here’s an article with more details about cold water shock at Lake Tahoe. This isn’t meant to scare you about getting in the water, but I want you to be extra careful and wear a life jacket no matter what.

What should I pack in the summer?
The weather can be anywhere from 40-degrees to 90-degrees. Make sure to pack summer clothes, but also jackets and hats for the cold mornings and evenings. And if you’re out on the water, the boat ride will most likely be pretty chilly. My lightweight jacket hardly did the trick because I was freezing. I have no idea how some of our friends go into the water.

Is it kid-friendly?
I don’t have kids, but if I was a kid, I’d LOVE to visit Lake Tahoe. There were plenty of kids at the place we stayed, ice cream shops all around, trails for bike riding, and the perfect spot to roast marshmallows by the lake. What’s not to love if you’re a kid? If I had kids, I’d 100% take them to Lake Tahoe!

How do you get around?
It all depends where you’re staying, and the time of day it is. We drove to many spots; you could bike/walk the paths to get to the main strip or hop in an Uber or Lyft if it’s late at night. When we went out to the Karaoke bar, we took the best Uber in the world. She pulled out her music and did carpool karaoke with us! It’s in the video ๐Ÿคญ There are also Lime scooters available if you can find them.

Would this be fun for a bachelorette party?
Absolutely! The activities are endless. You can do yoga by the lake, take a boat cruise, spend some time at the casino, dine at the best restaurants, have a spa day, sing karaoke, kayaking, and so much more. I’d 100% do this for a bachelorette/bachelor party.

Are there bears?
Yes, but we didn’t see any.

When is the best time to travel to Lake Tahoe?
Honestly, it depends on what kind of activities you like. If you like skiing, snowboarding, waking up to snowy views, the winter. If you’re like me and enjoy warm days with mimosas and boat rides, the summer for sure, I bet it’s equally gorgeous and fun no matter what time you visit, but it’ll all depend on what kind of vacation you want to have.

If you enjoy destination runs, definitely look into races in Lake Tahoe. A big congrats to the runners in the group for waking up early and running a half marathon at a crazy elevation! The views are breathtaking, so all of the running was worth it.

MAKE LAKE TAHOE A DESTINATION RUN

I believe this was the Rock Tahoe Half that they ran, so if you’re a runner, look into it for next year. It’s a great excuse to visit. ๐Ÿ’œ

You’re going to want to stop at some scenic spots, or maybe schedule in a hike! I wish so badly I would have gone for a hike while in Tahoe, but I’ll have plenty of time to do it next time!

After their race, we made it back to the resort to enjoy an afternoon at the pool and beach. It was so lovely because the pool was right next to the lake so you could change it up. I also loved having the lake views when you were spending time in the hot tub. This was the perfect spot for the whole group to hang out, grab some, eat some snacks, sip on some refreshing drinks, and relax before a night out.

BEACH DAY ON THE LAKE

It’s crazy how crystal clear the water was. Sometimes I forget how gorgeous the United States truly is.

If you’re looking for a good dinner spot to accommodate a large group, Capisce? Italian Family Restaurant is it. Not only was the food incredible, but the atmosphere and service were great.

CAPISCE? ITALIAN FAMILY RESTAURANT

The menu was so extensive that I had a hard time deciding what to get. One of the cool things is that they had zucchini noodles as a pasta replacement for all of their pasta dishes. I ended up ordering the apple cranberry salad with blackened salmon, and it was unreal. The salmon was cooked so perfectly that I just wanted more. The rest of the salad had fresh spring mix, apples, cranberries, toasted & candied pecans with a sweet dijon vinaigrette. Not one person complained about their food, so it’s safe to say this place was a hit.

ROJO’S FOR KARAOKE

A few of us refused to end the night at dinner. We hopped in an Uber and headed to Rojo’s for Karaoke. This place was a gem, and one of the best parts of the trip. It’s a small bar, but we met some of the friendliest locals, and they made us feel like rockstars! If you’re looking for a fun night out, please add Rojo’s to your list.ย Lake Tahoe South, Travel Blog, Simply Taralynn, Travel Blogger, Traveling, Blog, Travel, Mountains, Edgewood Bistro, California, Nevada, Summer, Trips, Traveling to Tahoe, Lake Tahoe, Where to eat, drink, stay, boating, see, things to do in Lake Tahoe, summer in lake tahoe, sprouts cafe, vegan, healthy, dairy free, gluten free, food, cafe, vegan, breakfast, lunch, juices, desserts, pastries, healthy foodLake Tahoe South, Travel Blog, Simply Taralynn, Travel Blogger, Traveling, Blog, Travel, Mountains, Edgewood Bistro, California, Nevada, Summer, Trips, Traveling to Tahoe, Lake Tahoe, Where to eat, drink, stay, boating, see, things to do in Lake Tahoe, summer in lake tahoe, sprouts cafe, vegan, healthy, dairy free, gluten free, food, cafe, vegan, breakfast, lunch, juices, desserts, pastries, healthy foodLake Tahoe South, Travel Blog, Simply Taralynn, Travel Blogger, Traveling, Blog, Travel, Mountains, Edgewood Bistro, California, Nevada, Summer, Trips, Traveling to Tahoe, Lake Tahoe, Where to eat, drink, stay, boating, see, things to do in Lake Tahoe, summer in lake tahoe, sprouts cafe, vegan, healthy, dairy free, gluten free, food, cafe, vegan, breakfast, lunch, juices, desserts, pastries, healthy food
I don’t go out very often, so it was safe to say I was feeling it in the morning. What better place to recovery than at Sprouts Cafe? I had a reader recommend this place to me, and when I looked it up, I knew I had to check it out. Sprouts Cafe is the perfect spots for healthy cuisine that you can enjoy outside on their patio, or take with you on the go. We stopped into Sprouts Cafe before heading out for our lake day. ย All of the food at Sprouts is 100% organic, and fresh as it gets. They have pastries, juices, smoothies, sandwiches, bowls, cereals, salads, burgers, and more!

SPROUTS CAFE

For my day out on the lake, I ordered a vegetable crunch sandwich on gluten-free bread without cheese. I had them add turkey along with the avocado, sprouts, cabbage, onions, carrots, tomatoes, and honey mustard dressing. Holy Moly was this sandwich delicious!

To recover from the night before, I ordered the ultimate smoothie! It had the “mean green machine” which came with strawberries, orange juice, vegetable protein powder, spirulina, and I had them use water instead of orange juice, added a ginger shot, and wheat grass! I loved it, even with all the extra green goodness.

Before we left Lake Tahoe to take off for our California coast trip, Caitlin & I stopped there for breakfast. This time, I ordered the oatmeal topped with bananas, apples, strawberries, oranges, and the same smoothie on the side. Caitlin had theirย rice bowl which came with steamed vegetables, salsa, green onion, rice, and tortilla chips.Lake Tahoe South, Travel Blog, Simply Taralynn, Travel Blogger, Traveling, Blog, Travel, Mountains, Edgewood Bistro, California, Nevada, Summer, Trips, Traveling to Tahoe, Lake Tahoe, Where to eat, drink, stay, boating, see, things to do in Lake Tahoe, summer in lake tahoe

If you’re traveling with a group, renting a boat for a day out on the lake is a must. It’s the best way to see all the gorgeous views, relax with music, and swim in the lake water if you’re brave enough. Caitlin was the badass of the group and was designated, captain. I was impressed because I have no idea how to drive a boat, and I even grew up with my family having one.

PONTOON BOAT RENTAL

Make sure to bring snacks, drinks, sunscreen, sweatshirts, towels, lifejackets, and your camera! If you don’t know how to drive a boat or don’t feel like being captain for the day, you can always schedule a fun boat cruise. That was one of our options while planning the trip, but since we had Caitlin, we decided to rent our own pontoon.

EMERALD BAY STATE PARK

Take the boat to Emerald Bay State Park. This is where a lot of people anchor out to enjoy the views of the waterfalls, kayak to Fannette Island to see the old stone tea house or visit the Vikingsholm mansion.

She said they served the ultimate cup of coffee, and their specialty donuts were to die for. Locals always have the best suggestions, so I had to check this place out.

GLAZED & CONFUZED TAHOE DONUT

She was NOT kidding about the coffee here. I went in to grab two cups of coffee, and they also threw in some free donuts for us. The place is so fun, and it was walking distance from our Airbnb. If you like fun flavored donuts, good coffee, and really friendly staff, definitely stop in!

One of my favorite spots to visit during the trip was Edgewood Tahoe. While the runners were out doing their thing, the rest of us had brunch at Edgewood Bistro. This spot was a gem, and I could have spent my entire day there. The views with coffee were breathtaking, and the food was fresh and tasty! Even though it’s a bit chilly in the morning, do yourself a favor and sit outside by the fire.

THE BISTRO AT EDGEWOOD TAHOE FOR BRUNCH

I started with a black coffee and a fun french lavenderย drink, which was one of the best cocktails I’ve ever had. I’ve never been a cocktail person, but if they all tasted as good as this one, I could quickly become one. For my breakfast, I ordered gluten-free avocado toast with a poached egg on top and a side of fresh fruit. 10/10 would recommend! If you want to treat yourself, order the banana bread-style steel-cut oatmeal with glazed pecans and banana slices for the table to share. You’ll be in for a real treat.

I also have to note how amazing our waiter was. His name was Todd, and he made our brunch experience 10x better ๐Ÿ’œ

If you wanted to do dinner with a large group like this, make sure to make a reservation, but if you’re just stopping by for drinks and appetizers, you’ll be able to sit outside on the cozy couch. I would 100% recommend adding this to one of your evening plans while you’re there. They even had a smores bar set up for you to roast marshmallows by the fire.

THE BISTRO AT EDGEWOOD TAHOE FOR DRINKS & APPETIZERS

We all enjoyed drinks while the sunset and snacked on the most delicious fries with red pepper and garlic aioli. The purple drink I ordered was actually a mocktail that had blackberries, mint leaves, seltzer, and lemon. We ended our evening at Edgewood with wine and toasted to our last night together.

After drinks and appetizers at Edgewood, we headed over to The Naked Fish for some of the best sushi I’ve ever had! They had a gluten-free menu that I ordered my sushi off of. Mine had yellowtail, jalapeno, sriracha mango aioli, avocados, jalapenos, and gluten-free soy sauce. This was one of the best things I’ve ever had at a sushi restaurant. It’s safe to say that the food in Lake Tahoe did not disappoint.

THE NAKED FISH SUSHI

This is a great spot for groups, and just like all the other places, the staff was so friendly! I recommend having a cup of their warm green tea after dinner. It’s a very casual spot, so the perfect place to have dinner after a long day out on the lake.ย Lake Tahoe South, Travel Blog, Simply Taralynn, Travel Blogger, Traveling, Blog, Travel, Mountains, Edgewood Bistro, California, Nevada, Summer, Trips, Traveling to Tahoe, Lake Tahoe, Where to eat, drink, stay, boating, see, things to do in Lake Tahoe, summer in lake tahoe

    Ahhh love this!!! I haven’t been to Lake Tahoe since college! My teammates and I used to go there every President’s Day weekend. It was always a blast ๐Ÿ™‚

    Also, all of your pictures turned out gorgeous (as always)! I know you dyed your hair a while ago but it looks amazing ๐Ÿ™‚

    The last place I traveled with friends was to Lake Cumberland! We went down for a bachelorette party about three weeks ago and could not have asked for better weather. The water in the lake was super warm an the beer was ice cold ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Taralynn, thank you so much for this gorgeous Lake Tahoe blog, I loved it from the beginning to an end. (in fact I didn’t want it to end!) And hearing you say how great the coffee and vegan/gf options are this definitely is a must visit place.

    I have been to Tahoe once almost 7 years ago now! We were there for a cousin’s destination wedding, and it was on the northern edge of the lake! We stayed in the Squaw Valley Resort area in the Olympic Village, and it was so much fun! They had the most AMAZING scenic areas to walk, bike, or run, and the kayak/other water toys rentals were almost unlimited in possibilities! The river was so clear, and being there in August, the weather was amazing. I still dream about the Plumpjack Inn. โ™ฅ

    When I travel, I like to have a combination of leisure and adventure! If we don’t have some “down” time, the whole trip can feel like you’re constantly running from one activity to the next. That can be fun, but it also leaves you more tired when you return home than when you left for “vacation!” But if the entire trip was leisure, I may just get bored, to be honest. I can only lay around *so much*. Even on our honeymoon, we planned excursions to a couple different active areas in Jamaica and it was the PERFECT addition to a week of pool time, beachside drinks, a spa day with my love, and we even did a couple sports they offered while we were there! There was a tight rope/adventure course on the resort grounds that was super fun, and we also participated in a water biking class (literally a spin bike… in the pool. What?) as well as sand volleyball! The funny thing about the volleyball was that we were the only resort guests to show up at that hour, so they filled in the other handful of player spots with workers from around the resort! I think they had as much fun (on the clock) as we did!

    We most recently went to the east coast to DC, Philly, and up the coast of Maine to Bar Harbor, but that was just my husband and me! The last “friendcation” I went on was in 2017 to the Grand Canyon with Matt and another couple that we traveled with! I would redo that whole vacation over again as well. *sigh*.

    I’d love the mug, but am fresh out of mug room in my cabinets, and getting rid of any feels like choosing a favorite child. So, I’ll have to go with “entering” giveaway #1 because coffee is the bomb, and destination roasts like this are so fun to try! I love it!

    Keep being you, girl. I hope you’ve fully recovered from the trip (the terrible things and stressors as well as just regaining your natural flow and energy of your day-to-day!) and I can’t wait to see more of these trip posts!

    1) I’ve never been to Lake Tahoe, but you’ve definitely changed my opinion about going! Those mountains are gorgeous and I must experience all of the mountain viewing possible. ๐Ÿ™‚
    2) So, I’m a leisure traveler until I get there and get rested back up, and then it’s allllll adventure!
    3) The last place I went with friends was camping for the weekend at Greers Ferry Lake in Arkansas. We went during October and got to just hangout all weekend and make yummy campfire food. It was seriously the best. We even got to pick out campsite so we ended up right by the lake!
    I seriously love all of your travel blogs, you’ve definitely added so many places to my lifetime travels board. ๐Ÿ™‚ #1

    What kind of traveler are you?
    I am a “both” type of traveler. I think I like that feeling of relaxation to kick in after some exploration. Nothing better than a quiet cup of coffee from somewhere local when you’re traveling to get the relaxation vibes to kick in, then doing something active like hiking or paddle boarding or bike riding and then ending with a delicious dinner somewhere to relax again. Lake Tahoe looks incredible and a great place to travel if you’re a “both” traveler. Thanks for the guide!

    I’m glad you enjoyed the lake, the pictures are amazing and the water is so clean! I hope I could visit this place some day.

    I am more the adventure person, I love to explore and walk a lot. But sometimes it’s good to have one day of total relax as well ๐Ÿ™‚

    My last trip was to Poland last week. I live with my boyfriend in Barcelona. I am Polish and he is from Venezuela ๐Ÿ™‚ I took him to my country for the first time and he met my friends and family! It was so exiting… definitely one of the best moments of my live! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1) I have never been to Lake Tahoe but I am dying to go there, especially now after reading through this post! It looks like you all had an amazing time!
    2) I am a little bit of both! I love to hike, zipline, horseback ride, etc., when I am traveling but you can definitely catch me beach-side/pool-side reading and relaxing!
    3) I was in the Tuscany area of Italy this past January and we really lucked out with weather. It was an awesome time going to wineries and exploring little towns so I am really looking forward to reading the rest of your travel blog from California.

    Thanks for posting this awesome blog, it looked like you had a blast! Also, the picture of the entire group… how did everyone color coordinate so well, ha, it looks GREAT! Trying the coffee you had in Lake Tahoe would be super fabulous!

    This blog was so fun to read! I really want to check out Lake Tahoe now.

    I havenโ€™t had a lot of opportunity to travel, but I take day trips to Portland with my cousin. It is seriously amazing. She is a vegan and knows all of the best restaurants. DoViVi pizza is probably the best pizza I have ever had and it was vegan ๐Ÿฅฐ Portland is just great for walking around the different areas, exploring museums and hiking. If you havenโ€™t been to Oregon I suggest going. Iโ€™ve lived here my whole life and canโ€™t imagine being anywhere else.

    I have not been to Lake Tahoe, but it looks absolutely gorgeous, so it’s definitely on the list. I recently went to Tacoma/Seattle, and the mountains and forestry were breathtaking – I don’t get to see such beauty in the city.

    A little bit of both – every year, my mom, brother, and I take a family trip to a new destination and my mom has every detail mapped out on a timeline so we are constantly on the go. We’ve done all kinds of things, from cycling in the mountains to visiting a free-roam wildlife park to jet-skiing in the ocean and seeing whales and dolphins, so it’s fun but exhausting! With friends or my SO, though, I take my time and enjoy my surroundings without being rushed.

    My friends and I had a girls weekend in Vegas. We did visit the Vegas strip, which was kind of overwhelming, but we also spent time in my friend’s pool and hiked. It was insanely hot when we went, but since I’m from Chicago, I was totally enamored with the palm trees, wildlife, and flowers out there!

    Just got home from my yearly one week stay in Tahoe, Northside by Squaw Valley. Got in a lot of hiking some were cut short due to still so much snow on the mountains. Also lots of bike riding on the trail that follows along the Truckee River with awesome views the whole way.
    Lake Tahoe and the whole area is absolutely beautiful and was sorry to have to leave but look forward to going again!

    Hi Taralynn!

    Looks like an amazing trip! You always look so stylish and your photos are so bright and cheerful! I have never been to Lake Tahoe, but I definitely want to go now. Added to the list!

    I like a little bit of leisure and little bit of adventure when traveling. The last trip I went on with friends was to Denver, CO. We went to Red Rocks to see a concert, hiked a lot, ate at a local restaurant called The Denver Biscuit Co and went to a little mountain town outside of Denver, called Georgetown. We mostly packed our own lunches to eat while hiking instead of going out to eat. Nothing better than sitting by a mountain stream eating a sandwich with friends and dogs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don’t drink a lot of coffee but I do drink tea so #2! ๐Ÿ™‚ As always love your post!
