Parental Bliss – Far right column – Incline Village
Grab takeaway coffee and pastries from Tunnel Creek Café before heading to Monkey Rock. Be on the lookout for a "Keep Tahoe Blue Sticker" and fill up your water bottle with refreshing Tahoe tap water as you're bound to get thirsty on the 2.6 mile trail. Snap pictures of the amazing views and wildlife and watch the kids climb the boulders and trees. Grab takeaway lunch at T's Mesquite Rotisserie for famous Cali Mex. We're talking huge tacos and burritos! Then head to Brewforia for beers and cocktails. Move across your BINGO card in a diagonal to leave an online review and you've just scored double BINGO!
Family Fun – Far left column – Squaw Valley & Tahoe City
Start at the bottom of the far left column and head straight up the BINGO card! Take a picture in front of the Squaw Valley Olympic Flame and in front of the HUGE Squaw Valley chair in the Village. Grab tacos and margaritas at The Blue Agave in Tahoe City or at Hacienda Del Lago. Then take a relaxing walk down to the shoreline. That's one column off your BINGO card!
Kid Time – Top row & 4 corners – Squaw Valley, Tahoe City, Incline Village & Northstar
This is a great one to do after Family Fun because it involves dessert! Tahoe City Chocolates in Tahoe City has handmade chocolates and candies from all over the world and delicious ice cream perfect for a hot summer day. Buy a gift card while you're there at the Boatworks shops and head to Northstar to find Howdy the Bear. If you've already done Parental Bliss, then Monkey Rock has been ticked off the list and you've just finished the top row AND four corners on your BINGO card!
