With back to school looming, a never-ending list of house chores and summer commitments, we all could use a vacation to Lake Tahoe right about now! Something about laying in that warm sand and hearing the sparkling blue water crash to the shore just makes everything else melt away. To help you truly embrace the stress-free living of Lake Tahoe, we’ve put together some travel tips for the perfect Lake Tahoe vacation!
Limit Screen Time
Get off your phone! Nowadays, most of us are addicted to our phones in some way, shape, or form. Whether you’re constantly texting and calling people or just enjoy scrolling through social media for hours, take a break when you vacation in Lake Tahoe! Make rules for yourself when it comes to checking emails and responding to family and friends. Of course you want others to get a hold of you in case of an emergency, but other than that, you need to take some space away from your phone and enjoy the relaxing moments and stunning scenery during your Tahoe vacation!
We all have been guilty at some point in our life for overpacking WAY too much. We understand that you want to be prepared for anything that comes your way during your vacation, but packing up your whole house for a week’s vacation can be a little too stressful. Truly bring only the necessities on vacation and if you find yourself needing to buy something small that you forgot, it’s not a big deal! Lake Tahoe has plenty of shops around the Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel area and you’ll be sure to find anything that you’ll need. Packing lightly will relieve your stress and keep your hotel room clutter-free!
Nothing screams relaxation more than a perfect beach day! Put on your bathing suit, lather on some sunscreen, and grab your towels because a day at the beach is a perfect way to be stress free on vacation. Lake Tahoe has beautiful beaches and stunning views for all of your relaxing needs. Maybe think about trying yoga on the beach or take part in some meditation practices to really unwind and relieve that tension. If yoga or meditation isn’t really your thing, simply lay on the warm sand and soak up the sun. Whatever activity you do to relieve stress, doing it on the beach makes it ten times more relaxing!
Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff
A big piece of advice that we can give you is to not sweat the small stuff. When in Lake Tahoe, you’re on vacation! There’s no reason to get worked up over something small that could potentially ruin a day when you’re in paradise. If a problem does occur, take a deep breath and ask for help! Here at Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel, we have a friendly, helpful staff just waiting to make your trip the best ever.
Set Up A Budget
Another helpful tip is to set up a budget before you leave for your vacation. We’re not oblivious to the fact that vacations can come with a pretty hefty price tag. When you set a budget before you go, you’ll know exactly how much you want to spend and you won’t have to stress about finances during or after your vacation. Make sure to have room in your budget for fun attractions and souvenirs because after all, you do want to treat yourself!
If you like to be an active person on vacation, this one’s for you! Breathe in some fresh air on the beautiful hiking trails in Lake Tahoe. Our hiking trails have a very serene feel to them, but they also get your heart pumping and your legs moving. Exercise is a great way to relieve stress and what better way to do that than with exploring the absolutely gorgeous Tahoe views!
Don’t Plan Every Minute
The last thing you want to do on vacation is create an itinerary for every waking hour you’re there. It’s important that you don’t plan out every minute of your stay so that you don’t stress over being “late” to any activities. Create a wish list of the top activities that you want to pursue and when the time is right, you’ll get to have an enjoyable experience and create memories with your loved ones. When in Lake Tahoe, you have to go with the flow!

Let Go Of Expectations
You need to let go of expectations! A vacation in Lake Tahoe is the time for you to let all worries and expectations go. Handle your days one at a time without expecting anything to come from them. When you don’t have any expectations, nothing will be able to let you down. Whether it be the weather or the activities you experience, just take it one day at a time and you’ll be sure to have the time of your life!
With these tips, you’ll be sure to experience the most stress free vacation of your lifetime! Book your stay now at the Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel for a much needed relaxing and peaceful getaway. We can’t wait to meet you and make your stay as stress free as possible!
