5 Fall Favorites in Reno Tahoe

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.

Paddling out of a lake life kind of weekend. #laketahoe #tahome

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.


Cool Colors

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.


Entertaining Events

We have almost as many events as we have colorful leaves. Almost. With events this fun (and unique!) you are guaranteed a good time this fall in Reno Tahoe. Here are just a sample of the many events happening in the area.

Seeing Snow

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?

The 1st day of Fall brought us #snowflakes! #dreamingofpow #diamondpeak
