SUMMER

 

Romantic Strolls in Wildflower Meadows
The wildflowers in the Lake Tahoe Basin are most abundant and colorful in late spring and early summer. Any time of the day can be romantic as you leisurely stroll hand-in-hand along picturesque paths framed with wildflowers. The common wildflower colors include blue, purple, pink, red, white, and yellow. The not-so-common wildflower names include Indian Paintbrush, Shooting Star, Mountain Mule Ears, Pink Monkeyflowers, Ranger Buttons and Cow Parsnip. All of the shores of Lake Tahoe offer splendid opportunities to stop and smell the flowers and stop and kiss your sweetheart. Although the wildflowers are only in bloom part of the year, romance blossoms year-round in Tahoe!

Visit the HIKING page in the OUTDOORS section of the
RECREATION main menu for descriptions and directions to nine wildflower strolls that vary from two to five miles in length.


Romantic Lake Cruises

Early Sunset & Dinner Dance Cruises
The M.S. Dixie II and the Hornblower's Tahoe Queen are authentic paddlewheelers. Both offer an opportunity to enjoy a romantic Sunset Cruise or a Dinner Dance Cruise. During these cruises you'll enjoy breathtaking views of the surrounding Sierra Nevada Mountains and the crystal-clear waters of Lake Tahoe. These vessels offer full-service bars, freshly prepared food and live music. Paddlewheelers can entertain 500 people, but you can still have a personally romantic experience as a couple because the vessels are really big.

Sunset Champagne Cruises
If you are looking for a more intimate lake cruise, Woodwind Sailing Cruises offers a two-hour Sunset Champagne Cruise that lets you enjoy the colorful evening light and spectacular panoramas as you sip complimentary beverages. Two sunset cruises depart daily at 7:00 p.m. most of the season, but may vary based on the time of sunset. The Woodwind II is a 50-passenger, 55-foot catamaran that sets sail from Zephyr Cove Marina. The Woodwind I is a 30-passenger, 41-foot trimaran that sets sail from Historic Camp Richardson Resort.

Visit the LAKE CRUISES section of the
RECREATION main menu for additional information and contact numbers for the M.S. Dixie II, Hornblower's Tahoe Queen and Woodwind Sailing Cruises.

Private Sunset Cruises
For couples who delight in their own company, you may want to charter the Avalanche, a 35-foot J105 sailboat. Tahoe Sailing Charters offers a two-hour sunset cruise for parties of one to six between May 15 and September 15. The Captain is at your command. The scenery is breathtaking.

Visit the SAILING page of the WATER SPORTS section of the WHERE TO PLAY main menus for additional information and a contact number for Tahoe Sailing Charters.
