With temperatures dropping but the weather still mild, autumn is one of our favorites times to visit Lake Tahoe. If you’re planning to join us, here are a few local activities to keep in mind:
Oktoberfest can be found various places and dates from late September through October. Visit Squaw Valley on September 21st or Camp Richardson on October 5th and 6th.
The Kokanee Salmon Festival at Taylor Creek celebrates the fall migration of the Kokanee salmon. This free family event is held October 5th and 6th. Join in a salmon feed or perhaps a 5k, 10k or 1/2 marathon.
Apple Hill is open year-round but is always fun during autumn. Pick apples, sample apple ciders and apple pies, visit a winery and enjoy the fall colors!
