The Ultimate Travel Guide for Lake Tahoe


Greetings from TAHOE!

After some somewhat serious consideration, and by that I mean deciding to not be lazy and cheap, I decided to spend two days on the lake, recharging my batteries. I need a fresh start and what better of a place than the relaxing and gorgeous Lake Tahoe!? I am staying the Hyatt and it's amazing. I chose them because they are super nice, obviously, and because I wanted lakeside. And well after much research, they are about as lakeside hotel as you can get in Tahoe!

The first part of my adventure was packing. My best friend Casey knew this about me. I am the worst packer in the world because I ALWAYS over pack. In order to avoid that, I usually have to list each day, what activities I have planned, and what outfits I need. Then I make a list, overpack still, unpack, repack, and finally I have enough to fit in one carry on. But for this trip, I have my beautiful Stella (that's my car!) so I loaded her up. Whenever I go anywhere, I take my Delsey bag. Seriously this bag is a carry on but I can easily fit 2 weeks worth of clothes in it! The shoes are Vionic and you may not believe me but they are comfort shoes. I wear them to work all the time, 10.5 hour days, and my feet don't hurt at all! They are totally worth the price tag. And the hat, I think I got it at Target years ago, but it matched and every girl needs a beach hat!

When I finally got to Tahoe (I took my time getting ready) I was dying of hunger. I really wanted to a burger and I heard the Lone Eagle Grill is to die for so I headed over. I was able to steal a window seat and my server was seriously amazing! I totally over-tipped him but I have been having such poor quality service lately - I wanted to hug the guy! And the burger was amazing! Restaurant burgers are so good but they usually give me a stomach ache because of the grease. But this burger did not. And it was honestly the best burger I've ever had.

After my burger, I went outside and finished my beer by the firepit.... where I proceeded to spend the rest of my afternoon! It was GORGEOUS out! I ended up taking off my coat. I sat by the fire, the sun beaming on my face, the waves crashing in the distance, and I was happy. I also chatted with some fellow sun-soakers. They vacation up here and gave me some great food suggestions.

After I could sit no longer, I went to the hotel and checked in. I'm kind of a freak about hotel rooms so I spent a lot of time inspecting everything. I relaxed for a bit then finally walked back down to the beach. I was hoping to catch the sunset but the clouds had come in. I wandered the beach some and took some pictures.

PS I just want to point out: I think this is the second time I've stayed in a hotel just me alone and I LOVE it! :)

Then I decided I just wanted a quiet night in. So I went back to the hotel, grabbed some junk food, and spent the night blogging and editing photos. It was a good day! I can't wait for tomorrow!

I couldn't find the jeans (American Eagle) or the shirt (Vanity, which has since gone out of business) or the hat (Target years ago). But everything else is exact! :)
