Second closest ski resort to the cabin, with a great mix of runs for all experience levels. It's 14 miles (22 minutes) from the home. Smaller than Heavenly but typically gets more snow than Heavenly. It is a medium sized ski area and is well known for being a more family oriented resort and also having a high annual snowfall. Sierra-at-Tahoe's terrain is 25 percent beginner, 50 percent Intermediate, and 25 percent advanced. Great local resort to spend the day with the family.

Located in the Swiss Chalet Village on Lake Tahoe Blvd, it's just short 7 minute drive from the cabin. This is a great place for drinks and comfort food, and the staff and service has always been excellent. And they get creative with their food; it's appealing to look and eat. My recommendations are their Mac and Cheese (so large it can be shared), their fish tacos, and their burgers. I've never ordered something here where we were disappointed.

Highly rated and unique. I would personally call this more of a BBQ and Mexican fusion style restaurant. The staff is awesome and food is great. Located on Ski Run Blvd not far from downtown. Parking in the small lot may get tricky, but there's usually plenty of street parking within a block of the restaurant.

If you plan to drive around the lake to take in some sights and want to dine in a very nice establishment on the water, you must check our Gar Woods on the north shore for lunch or dinner. Do plan to make a reservation ahead of time or you may not get a table (its a very popular place). They also have a public pier so if you are boating around the lake, you can also dock your boat there while you are dining. Yes Gar Woods is on the pricy side, but you are right on the water with an unparalleled view of the lake, the food is excellent, the service is excellent, and of course try the Wet Woody (their signature drink).

Sightseeing
An absolutely must see. Overlooking the majestic Emerald Bay, this national landmark and dramatic bay setting is the most iconic and "most photographed" view of the lake. Landmarked in 1994 for its glacier-carved granite, this park features panoramic views of the lake, including Eagle falls. There are also some great hikes in the area, including paths down to the lake. If you've never been to Tahoe before, put this on your list. Note that this area may not be accessible in the winter.
