As the summer crowds disperse and the temperatures become pleasantly crisp, Lake Tahoe transforms into a serene autumn wonderland. The fall season in Lake Tahoe offers a unique blend of stunning natural beauty and festive activities. If you're planning a visit to this picturesque destination during the fall months, here are five fantastic things to do in Lake Tahoe.

Fall Foliage & Leaf Peeping

Where To Go: Lake Tahoe's surroundings burst into vibrant hues of orange and yellow during the fall. Some of the best spots for leaf peeping in Lake Tahoe due to the abundance of Golden Aspens include the Truckee River, Spooner Lake, Emerald Bay, and Highway 267. Take a leisurely drive or a scenic hike to immerse yourself in the autumn colors.

Fall Hikes

Noteworthy Trails: Lace up your hiking boots and explore the stunning fall landscapes around Lake Tahoe. Eagle Rock, Lacey Meadow, and State Line Fire Lookout trail are great hikes for enjoying the crisp fall air and autumn views. Don't forget your camera to capture the awe-inspiring scenery.

Autumn Festivals

Festival Fun: Lake Tahoe hosts several autumn festivals that provide a taste of the local culture and community spirit. Check out the Tahoe City Oktoberfest and the Village of Palisades Oktoberfest for lively celebrations featuring traditional music, delicious food, and of course, plenty of beer. The Made in Tahoe Festival and Downtown Truckee Wine, Walk, & Shop event offers unique shopping opportunities for locally crafted goods and wine tasting.

Scenic Drives

Breathtaking Routes: If you prefer to take in the fall beauty from the comfort of your car, embark on a scenic drive. Highway 89, Donner Pass, and Mount Rose offer awe-inspiring panoramic views. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife and photo-worthy viewpoints along the way.

Paddle Boarding and Kayaking

On the Water: While the water may be cooler in the fall, it's still a great time for water activities. Meeks Bay, Donner Lake, and Sand Harbor are favorite spots for paddle boarding and kayaking.
