Want to take a trip to Tahoe? We got the opportunity recently and jumped on it. For accomodations, we chose the very beautiful and well-manicured Squaw Valley Lodge. This hotel is known for being extremely clean and also for being one of the most ideal locations available in the North Lake Tahoe Region.

Not only are the rooms at the Lodge nice and well cared-for, but the hotel manages to keep their rates very reasonable. If you’re looking for your Tahoe hotel, Lucas and I highly recommend Squaw Valley. It’s an even better choice if you’re the type who doesn’t like to plan activities ahead of time; this hotel is close to a lot of activities that could suit  the most avid outdoor enthusiast.

The next day, we drove around the entire Lake. Although some Tahoe tourists spend their vacation time in the smoky  casinos, we always prefer to stay outdoors and explore in the daylight. Why would you want to stay inside with scenery like this?!

Tahoe has such a great story! Imagine this beautiful body of water discovered entirely by accident! Not only that, but the explorer who found Lake Tahoe actually challenged Mark Twain to write the proper words to describe its splendor.

You can go crazy on the lake with jet skis and other fun toys during the summer, but that doesn’t mean Tahoe isn’t a blast in winter too. Squaw Valley (a famed resort at Tahoe which we found out actually hosted the Winter Olympics in 1960), is known for its great skiing and snowboarding.

Even though it gets cold enough for lots and lots of snow, Lake Tahoe never freezes. Ever! This is because its water is constantly in motion. The cold water at the surface of the lake is circulated to the bottom, and the nice toasty warm water at the bottom flips up to the top. No freezing!

I imagine it would be hard to go wrong with any vacation planning choices at Lake Tahoe. The locals are so kind and informative that you’ll be able to talk to one person and get all the info you need.

Our advice? Enjoy the surroundings! Summer, winter, whatever time of year it may be, Tahoe rocks.
