We almost can't believe that the last holiday weekend of the summer is already here. What an amazing summer it has been here in Lake Tahoe...and it's not over yet! The Lake Tahoe water temperature is the warmest it's been all season, there is still plenty of sun to soak up, and this weekend is packed full of awesome Labor Day Events. See you on the lake!
