As the weather begins to cool, the adventure begins to heat up in Reno Tahoe. You can get a wide range of Reno NV hotel options during off-seasons that are very affordable as compared to a normal tourist season. You can spend days while mountain biking, hiking, and explore that Reno Tahoe culture.
A walk with a view
Are you looking to explore off the beaten path? Grab your favorite pair of hiking boots and head to Tunnel Creek Road where postcard-worthy views of Lake Tahoe await. Fall is an ideal time to take pleasure in the outdoors in Reno Tahoe. Have the benefit of fewer crowds, cooler temperatures, more animals, and take pleasure in nature at its finest. Closer to Reno, you can explore Hunter Creek where you can take in the changing leaves and a waterfall.
Get out and ride
Reno Tahoe is home to world-class biking trails. Ride the single tracks situated less than 5 miles from the Reno Arch, or your luxury motel in Downtown Reno, or take in the epic lake views situated along the Tahoe Rim Trail and the Flume Trail. If you are an adventure addict like a lot of other people, then you know there are countless biking trails to explore. Once the adrenaline rush wears off, head on over to Tunnel Creek Café to loosen up and sip on some cold ones.
Picnic at the lake
Fall is an ideal time for a picnic on the shores of Lake Tahoe at picturesque Sand Harbor. Bring your cooler packed with your favorite drinks and snacks, and soak up the sun while enjoying the tranquility of the turquoise waters. While Sand Harbor is a popular summer destination, the beach is just right regardless of the season. The off-season is an ideal time to rent a paddleboard or kayak and explore the rugged eastern shoreline without the crowds.
And guess what? From mid-October to mid-April the park is pet-friendly!
An Apres Adventure
You have had a wonderful day of exploration and now you are ready sit back and watch the sunset over the lake. To end your day, cozy up near the lakefront fire pit at Lone Eagle Grill with appetizing bites and s’mores. For more end of the day fun, either you can relax at your motel in Reno or grab your coat and take a stroll around one of the city’s neighborhoods.
While strolling along the Reno Riverwalk, warm up with a pumpkin caramel latte at Hub Coffee Roasters or quench your thirst in Midtown at Brauhaus 701 with their German / American fusion menu.
Do you have some little ones joining you on the trip? Kids always have a blast playing on the beaches of Lake Tahoe, hiking in the trees at Tahoe Meadows near Mt. Rose Summit and checking out the exhibits at The Discovery in Reno. There is a plethora of ways for little legs to explore and spark their curiosity!
