5 Fall Favorites in Reno Tahoe
Happy first day of fall! I assume you’re reading this while you’re either waiting in line for a PSL (no judgement here) or you just finished searching the back of your closet for your box of scarves. Either way, it’s time to read these five solid reasons to make Reno Tahoe your fall-cation destination.
Prime Paddling at Lake Tahoe
Summer is over and you know what that means… no summer crowds at Lake Tahoe! With over 300 days of sunshine in the Reno Tahoe area, fall is the perfect time to get out onto that famous crystal clear water. Kayaking and paddle boarding are my two favorites. The water is still warm(ish) from summer, and if you head out in the morning, you won’t be bothered by too much wind. It is fall (haven’t you heard?) so maybe wear something a little warmer than a bikini. Totally up to you. If the weather seems a little too dreary to be out on the water, try one of the many world class hiking trails that offer panoramic views.

Must-Try Seasonal Sips
Mmmm fall drinks. Whether it’s filled with caffeine or of the adults only variety, fall drinks are kind of the greatest thing about fall. There’s a whole world of specialty coffee shops in The Biggest Little City, and some of them are creating seasonal classic drinks. Several of our 30+ breweries are also getting into the autumn spirit by releasing seasonal brews. Go ahead and get festive and visit all of them. Maybe not in the same day.
Monday’s are for Lattes! The Tulip pour is named after its similarity to this flower Pouring one tier after another causes them to push into each other and open up giving it that tulip flower like aesthetic. #latteart #oldworldcoffee #specialtycoffee #monday #knowledgeispower #craftcoffee #summer #renonevada #midtownreno

No filter needed in Reno Tahoe. These colors are just begging to be photographed, and you must oblige. The leaves begin changing at the end of September and peak in October. You’ll see plenty of tourists and locals walking along the Truckee River for some great shots… and some great spots to grab a bite. Be sure to tag #RenoTahoe when you post for a chance to be featured on our Instagram.

Winter is coming. While the ski resorts up at Lake Tahoe don’t officially open until late October/November, the anticipation is growing. Mother Nature even seems excited herself, blessing the Sierra Nevada with some snow today. Wait, it’s the first day of fall, right?
