Thanksgiving at Lake Tahoe

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays. From sitting with my large family at the table creating new memories and catching up on life to laughing, comparing each other’s side dishes, to who’s the best cook, sharing what we’re thankful for and planning our theme for our family Christmas party and of course football!  I love that there is a whole day dedicated to gathering friends, family and great food. 

If you’re planning a visit to Lake Tahoe for the Thanksgiving holiday, You’re in for a treat!

Many of our local restaurants get into the spirit and offer their variations on the traditional meal. Delicious sides, decadent desserts, and lakefront (or mountain) views are all served up to help you and your family create your best Thanksgiving memories yet. Here are some of our top picks:

If you are renting a vacation home and would prefer to cook your own Thanksgiving dinner, a turkey from Overland Meat Company makes the perfect centerpiece. Plus, they also have bacon.

Happy Holidays!
