Start Planning: Autumn in Tahoe

Lake Tahoe

Ready to plan a fall adventure to Tahoe? Here are some of our favorite activities during this beautiful time of year:

Oktoberfest can be found various places and dates from late September through October. Visit Camp Richardson during the first weekend in October or Squaw Valley on September 19th.

The Kokanee Salmon Festival at Taylor Creek celebrates the fall migration of the Kokanee salmon. This free family event is held October 3rd and 4th. This year, for the first time ever, the Lahontan National Fish Hatchery will release 5,000 large Pilot Peak Lahontan cutthroat trout into their home waters of Lake Tahoe. The public is invited to the restocking of the 12″-14″ sized trout over the course of the weekend.

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!

Lake Tahoe’s Favorite Hot Spots

View from the Eagles’ Nest

If you’re heading to Tahoe, we’ve got a few favorite locations to check out:

  • The Loft at Heavenly Village is open 7 days a week from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., and features live theater, a lounge and dining.
  • Cold Water Brewery & Grill features craft beer, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch, as well as special events and live music.
  • Mont Bleu Resort and The Hard Rock Casino offer several restaurants, bars and lounges alongside casino entertainment.
  • Feel like dining right on the lake? Riva Grill is open daily for lunch and dinner and has some of the best views around!
  • There are also spectacular views (and great food) to be found at Brook’s Bar and Deck at Edgewood Tahoe, which features award-winning pub fare. (Golf Digest selected it as a “best golf pub” in 2016!)
  • Or enjoy good German food and bier (along with trivia and open mic nights) at Himmel Haus.
  • Feel like something a bit cozier? Jimmy’s Restaurant (at The Landing) features several private dining alcoves, each with their own fireplace! There are also 5 fire pits on the patio and roof-top deck, which overlooks the lake.
  • Finally, another popular spot is McP’s Taphouse Grill, which has 40 beers on tap and live music every night.

Of course, our personal favorite is Billy’s Bar in the Eagles’ Nest! Come grab a drink and check out our newly re-designed lobby!
