Tahoe City's Five Favorites For Summer

Concerts on the Beach: The lake is high, the temperatures are pretty dang perfect, and the music is fine at the edge of Lake Tahoe every Sunday at Concerts on The Commons. Whether you are there to enjoy the view, socialize with the throngs of locals and second home owners, or dance to the tunes right up front, there is nothing that says summer in Tahoe City better than the Sunday concerts on the beach. Bring a blanket and your low back chair, wine and food, and kick back. There are also a few food vendors if you didn’t have time to put together your own feast.

Movies on the Beach: Bring the kids to The Commons every Wednesday through August 24th to lie back and watch the stars and experience a movie outdoors next to the shore of Lake Tahoe. Early arrivals get the best seats and a chance to enjoy Cheri’s Hand Dipped Ice Cream. Bring plenty of layers as well as sleeping bags and blankets, as the temperatures drop rapidly once it gets dark.

Farmers Market: Combine your love of fresh produce with your love of Lake Tahoe, by doing them together, every Thursday between 8 am and 1 pm right on the shore of the lake at The Commons. The market not only has fresh veges and fruits, but also baked goods, cheeses, crepes and Indian concoctions to eat now, or meat and fish to enjoy later.

Sidewalk Saturdays. The second Saturday of the month is time for the Tahoe City merchants to entertain us with sip and shop, special sales and music. Take a stroll through town and enjoy Tahoe City’s eclectic shopping experience.

Tahoe City Kayak. You can take off right from the beach in Tahoe City every day of the week. The water is high, meaning you can begin paddling just a few feet from the parking lot. This is the summer to get out on a kayak or paddleboard in Tahoe City.
