There is no wrong time to visit the Lake Tahoe area. If you’d like to avoid the summer and winter crowds, there's still plenty to see and do so consider spending some time here in the fall. The air is a bit cooler, there's substantially less traffic, and the Aspens are changing. You'll have hiking trails, beaches and local hangouts all to yourself, and as an added bonus rates are generally cheaper for lodging and activities. Check out this list of some of our favorite fall activities to do around the Lake Tahoe.
