Autumn in Tahoe is perhaps the most underrated season. Many locals often wish that summer would just turn into winter as quick as possible, but Fall can easily become a the favored season.  The crowds are gone leaving ample space for activities for the Saavy Tahoe traveler, looking to relax on uncrowded beaches and explore hiking/biking trails all to themselves.

Among the crisp breath of fresh air that this time of year yields, don’t miss these great suggestions should you choose to sneak away to the mountains in the coming weeks.

While being a New England Native nothing holds a candle to foliage back home, however nothing quite makes me feel at home than seeing Tahoe’s Quaking Aspens pop yellow every Fall. Here are some great spots to see foliage at its best in town.

Go to the beach! Chimney Beach is my absolute favorite and nice reward after a little hike.
