As the rest of the country's summer simmers down, weekend sojourns and sun-drenched days remain fresh on our minds. Hey, things are just starting to heat up in the Bay and seasonal getaways are the perfect way to celebrate.
So, we’ve hit the road and headed about two hours north, where the adventures (and hotter temps) really are. We scurried into the blue … to South Lake Tahoe, to eat, chill, drink, and soak in all the action-packed activities found around the storied, crystal-clear lake. And boy, is it a sight to see. With the brand-new, hip-meets-rustic Basecamp Hotel as our starting point, we got our outdoorsy girl on, hitting the best beaches, hiking trails, and grub spots that add up to the perfect weekend road trip. Click through, because the only South Lake Tahoe summer itinerary you'll ever need awaits!
