Is there really a perfect time to visit Tahoe? With sunshine and watersports in the summer and snow sports in winter, this popular vacation destination is an ideal adventure year-round. Late fall draws family travelers looking for the perfect getaway to enjoy a little bit of everything.


At Zephyr Cove Resort in South Lake Tahoe, late fall offers families the best of both worlds. Sunny skies and temperatures yet to reach freezing offer tranquil days among the brilliant reds, oranges and yellows of fall colors, while the chilly evenings are perfect for cozying up to a warm fire.


When it comes to outdoor adventure, there is plenty to be had during late fall. While it may be too cold for a dip in the lake this time of year, you can still enjoy the beauty of Lake Tahoe with a scenic cruise. The resort, which partners with Lake Tahoe Cruises, offers day cruises around the lake, focusing on the beautiful Emerald Bay, a National Natural Landmark hiding fascinating history and hidden underwater treasures like sunken ships.


From land, not only can you enjoy strolling along the peaceful lakefront, which lies just steps from Zephyr Cove Resort, but the area is also ripe with great horseback riding and hiking trails for all skill levels, letting you explore the Alpine landscape. Eight main hiking trails are easily accessible from the resort, including Genoa Canyon Waterfalls Trail, which takes you to a nearby local waterfall and is perfect for hikers of moderate skill level.


Zephyr Cove features both lodge and camping options. Guests can stay in a room in the lodge, book one of the private cabins on the lake, or go for a true outdoors experience by camping under the stars. Camping options include tent sites and RV sites, or you can opt to rent one of the resort’s Airstream campers to enjoy the outdoors in style.


In addition to great restaurants and shopping in the city of South Lake Tahoe, Zephyr Cove offers everything you need for your stay. Dining is available at Zephyr Cove Restaurant in the lodge year-round and the on-site gift shop has all the necessities and souvenirs you may need.
