Experience Thanksgiving in Lake Tahoe!

If you're planning a Thanksgiving getaway to Lake Tahoe, you're in for a real treat!  Come November, expect chilly afternoons and crisp nights, perfect for enjoying a warm cup of cocoa or snuggling up in one of our cozy vacation rentals.  If you're an outdoor enthusiast, you'll find plenty of uncrowded trails to explore, and some of Lake Tahoe’s ski resorts open in mid-November, providing a great opportunity to work off that Thanksgiving feast on the slopes.  Here are 4 fantastic ways to celebrate Thanksgiving in Lake Tahoe.

1. Thanksgiving Dinner at Palisades Tahoe

Leave the cooking to the chefs at Palisades Tahoe this Thanksgiving!  Enjoy a delicious grand buffet with carving stations, holiday side dishes, and desserts. Guests will receive a complimentary glass of champagne upon arrival, and afterward, a full bar will be available for purchase. Reserve Now.

2. Hit The Slopes in North Lake Tahoe

What better way to spend Thanksgiving in Lake Tahoe than out there on the slopes? Both Palisades Tahoe and Northstar California Resort are scheduled to open before Thanksgiving (weather permitting).  

  • Palisades Tahoe Opening Day: Nov 22nd, 2023
  • Northstar Opening Day: November 17th, 2023


3. Explore the Trails

November is still a terrific time for hiking in Lake Tahoe.  We recommend layers as it's usually chilly in the morning, but that Lake Tahoe afternoon sun will warm you right up!  A few of our favorite fall hikes are Donner Summit Canyon Trail in Truckee, Eagle Rock Trail in Homewood, and Stateline Fire Lookout in Kings Beach. 

4. Stroll Historic Downtown Truckee

For a dose of festive spirit, head to Historic Downtown Truckee.  The main strip exudes a cozy, small-town charm, and a handful of the restaurants, bars, and shops are open on Thanksgiving Day.  Be sure not to miss the annual Truckee Christmas Tree-Lighting Ceremony, which takes place right around Thanksgiving.
