There is a little bit of everything in Lake Tahoe. You have casinos on the Nevada side, snow in the wintertime along with ski resorts and other snow sport activities. For the summertime visitors it the perfect place for swimming in the crystal clear waters. Other water sports like paddleboarding, kayaking, jet skiing, boating, and more are at your fingertips. But if you have a limited time there are some beautiful sights and activities that you can still participate in. I share my Lake Tahoe itinerary and how you what 24 hours in Lake Tahoe looks like if you’re visiting during the summer.
Lake Tahoe is the second deepest lake in the United States and straddles on the California/Nevada border. The alpine area makes the lake unique as its surrounded by mountains and pine trees. In the colder months, it’s a winter wonderland and during the summer the gorgeous blue water makes you feel like you’re in paradise. It’s an absolute dream place to photograph since you have different elements to capture. If you’re planning a visit then check out my list of the best photo spots in Lake Tahoe.
If you like warm beaches, hiking, some nightlife, great food and a bit of the city, Nicaragua might just be the place for you! Located in Central America, and neighboring Costa Rica and Honduras, Nicaragua is paradise on a budget. With all around good weather with some occasional showers, it’s the place to be for a chill getaway. The nightlife is quite happening in cities such as San Juan del Sur and Granada but if that isn’t your thing there are so many other things to in Nicaragua.
Sedona, Arizona isn’t exactly a hidden gem. I would say it’s pretty well known but not as heavily visited as say the Grand Canyon. However, Sedona is a magical wonderland that deserves a visit if you love desert landscapes and enjoy the outdoors. The backdrops of the mountains and rock formations are breathtaking. Just driving on the freeway and approaching Sedona is an experience in itself. There’s just something about the reddish-orange formations against the clear blue skies that will leave you in awe.
And if you enjoy the desert but love camping in a cooler climate then head over to Fossil Creek for the night and enjoy the activities and scenery that the area has to offer. More on Fossil Creek below.
