El Nino showed up big this year, with storms that continued to roll in late spring, though we know there wasn’t any griping about that! But with summer around the bend, school is almost out and you can feel the anticipation in the eyes of all the kids: freedom.
If you’ve booked your summer getaway already, kudos! If not, we still have some lodging available during the height of summer, though we can’t guarantee guests won’t snag the lakefront townhomes and other rooms with a view (what a summer view it is). If you’ve already put together your bucket list for this summer, we have a few we think you should add while in town:
- Wake up at dawn. Slip on your favorite sweater and stand at water’s edge and watch the sun rise over Donner Lake. Watch that alpen glow on fire.
- Take the 20-minute drive to the West Shore of Lake Tahoe and order your first cup of traditional Swiss coffee at Tahoe House. Enjoy the frothy cream of a drip coffee. It’s like nothing you’ve ever had. You’re welcome. (Try a raspberry twist pastry while you’re at it!)
- Snag a Donner dock in late morning and hang there in the heat of the day. Jump and swim off the docks, and bike into town for ice cream in the afternoon.
- S’mores by the campfire. Soak in the stars. They shine really bright in Truckee on a clear night.
