South Lake Tahoe

If you follow me on Instagram you might have noticed all my recent pictures from my vacation to Lake Tahoe.

Sorry it’s taken me this long to post about it, but we got home very late Sunday and I went straight to bed. I had to work the following morning, but here is it now. Enjoy!

Mini Vacation To:

South Lake Tahoe

When we’ve gone to Lake Tahoe in the past we’ve typically stayed at a family friends house which she rents out. She lives close to some amazing hikes and we’ll typically go hiking, exploring some grounds around the area, or go to Fallen Leaf Beach or Angora Lake, but this time we did something completely new.


We stayed in a great resort in South Lake Tahoe, the Marriott Timber Lodge, right below to Heavenly.


Our stay at the Marriott was great! The kids had so much fun in the pool and in Kids Club where they had activities all day long! The adults and I on the trip had fun as well drinking by the pool and exploring in Heavenly Village!


Unfortunately, due to very strong winds we were not able to take the gondolas up to Heavenly and do the fun activities up in the area. However, if you do have great weather I recommend you take the gondolas to Heavenly because there are so many activities to do at the top of the mountains. You can go zip-lining, tubbing, and there a fun coaster to ride on too! You can watch a video of the fun coaster HERE!


Food is also very important because well we all have to eat. Well if your going to South Lake Tahoe and need some where to find some great food Heavenly is the place to go! They have an amazing restaurant we visit every time we go, Base Camp Pizza Co. There pizza is amazingly delicious!! And if your not in the mood for pizza that alright because they’ve got many other food options you can choose from on their menu.


Another of our favorite stops is Heidi’s. This is a Pancake house open everyday from 7am to 2pm and it’s been around for over 50 years. There food is great, the pancakes are yummy, and their crapes and one of their specialties.


This next food option is one we just discovered and have rated it a 5 out of 5, Sonney’s BBQ Shack Bar and Grill. This is a new restaurant on the map, it just opened two years ago. The men were in the mood for some BBQ and this definitely hit the spot. Just look at one the meals they got!


I’m telling you know, if you’re in the mood for some great pulled pork or some amazing ribs stop at Sonney’s BBQ Shack Bar and Grill!


Now it’s time to share with you the beaches we went to and swam in! Like I mentioned before it was a bit breezy during our stay in Tahoe, so we didn’t do too much swimming in the lake.

This time around we went to Richardson beach and Round Hills Pines Beach Resort.

Check out some of the amazing pictures I took of the water and the mountains.


An amazing day at Richardson Beach.


Look at the snow at the top of the mountains!


We bought this pink flamingo at a toy shop in Heavenly Village, but I’ve also found that they sell it only! Click here to see it.


Mountains, boats and boys, my favorite view!

And that’s a wrap for my recent trip to Lake Tahoe!!
