Grab your snacks and get your playlists ready, we’re going on a road trip!

Whether you've got a three-day weekend coming up that you want to take advantage of or you're looking for a getaway from Lake Tahoe, we have some suggestions to make the most of your weekend trip.

1. Sierraville Hot Springs

Here, it is impossible to resist the overwhelming sense of tranquility. The natural spring water is as smooth as silk, and the pools are a true experience. For centuries, Native Americans have regarded this land as a sacred healing place.  Now we invite you to discover its incredible powers for yourself.


2. Donner Summit and Serene Lakes

Donner Summit and Donner Pass, just a minute or two from I-80, feels quaintly removed from the hustle of everyday life. There are small general stores, knick-knack and curio shops, motels and cabins, pleasant cafes and restaurants, public piers, hiking and biking trails, endless views, fishing guides, sandy beaches, and an amazing selections of slopes that lure boarders and skiers alike.

3. Donner Lake

A hidden jewel! Donner Lake is a freshwater lake in Northeast California on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada and about 20 miles northwest of the much larger Lake Tahoe. A moraine serves as a natural dam for the lake.

4. Loch Levon Lodge

Overlooking Donner Lake, this down-to-earth lodge is a mile from Donner Memorial State Park and 9 miles from Castle Peak in the Tahoe National Forest. The wood-paneled, rustic-chic rooms feature free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs, along with microwaves, minifridges and coffeemakers. Upgraded rooms add furnished, lake-view balconies.


5. Thunderbird Lodge

The Thunderbird Lodge, also known as the Whittell Estate, is a historic 6.51-acre (2.63 ha) waterfront estate located on the east shore of Lake Tahoe, in western Washoe County, Nevada. It is now within Lake Tahoe – Nevada State Park.
