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!

A unique way to explore Lake Tahoe, and one of its most historic estates, is to cruise a 1950 woody to Thunderbird Lodge. The cruise begins on the east shore, where the captain and crew will offer you a continental breakfast along with a fascinating history of this beautiful area. Once you reach Thunderbird Lodge, you’ll enjoy a walking tour of the estate, including the Thunderbird Yacht (one of the most valuable wood boats in the world), followed by a picnic lunch overlooking one of the most beautiful views you’ll ever see. This cruise is a delightful, one-of-a-kind experience, and we highly recommend it! Find more information here.
