Lake Tahoe, California is one of my favorite places to visit especially during Spring, Summer or Fall seasons. Haha, I guess I prefer not having to bundle in snow gear. Fresh air, hiking, water sports, family fun time and DOG FRIENDLY!
If you have an adventure dog, Lake Tahoe is a place you should consider spending some time exploring.
The water level has been low this summer on Lake Tahoe. I’ve considered getting Sherlock into Dock Diving where your dog’s jump off of a dock is measured. I was really happy that I haven’t done because I would have been stressed the whole time he’d jump and that he would have landed in shallow water on the rocks. Nope, no dock diving for us, at least until California gets some serious rain and the Lake level goes WAY up.
The morning is my favorite time on Lake Tahoe because the water is so calm, as people say “just like glass.” The saying is true and it’s the time I can be on the water without getting sick. I know, I’m a total wuss.
My whole family, Sherlock included enjoyed the mornings on the Lake and afternoon adventures off the Lake.
Note above, it was in the afternoon and the asphalt was too hot for Sherlock. But, that didn’t stop us from taking him shopping with us. (see previous post with estimates of how much hotter the asphalt than you’d think.)
Char Pit is a family favorite of ours. Super casual, out door picnic tables and dog friendly. There is an extensive burger menu and they have delicious onion rings. I recommend skipping dessert here and you’ll see why…
Because we love ice cream –
Cable Car Ice Cream is a cute walk up stand with changing flavors of Ice Cream. It’s a must visit when on the North Shore for my kids and Sherlock. Sharing is caring and Sherlock can patiently wait a long time for the last lick.
Late afternoons are always spent relaxing. Isn’t that what you do during Happy Hour?
Summer vacation has ended, school and soccer has started… We’ll be back Lake Tahoe!
