Toast the Moon always recommends using a passport. We also recommend TSA Pre-Check and Global Entry, because who wants to waste their vacation time in an airport line, am I right? Traveling around the United States is not difficult, but changes are in the air. Please be advised that as-of October 1, 2020 – basic drivers’ licenses will no longer be valid for identification in airports. Sign up for a passport or Real ID now to avoid complications later!

Lake Tahoe – Bringing Out the Kid in All of Us!

If you are looking for a holiday adventure full of play and fun – look no further. Lake Tahoe is a year-round adventure paradise. In the summer and fall, visitors and locals can be found on the trails with their hiking shoes or bikes, zip-lining, boating, water skiing, mountain tubing, taking on adventure courses, mountain roller-coasting, or rock climbing. In the winter, everyone heads to the slopes for world-famous skiing, skating, and snowboarding. This previous Winter Olympic Games destination will leave you breathless – in it’s beauty, it’s altitude, and in the workout you will get in this giant outdoor playground!

But, the Lake Tahoe area is famous for a lot more than just adventure. You can also find top-notch shopping, cozy restaurants, waterfront outdoor movies, spas, casinos, bakeries, coffee shops, and wine tasting! This is a beautiful location to wind-down, turn-off, and simply enjoy paradise. Tahoe has been home to some of Hollywood’s most famous celebrities when they simply wanted to escape it all – including Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Cher, and Liza Minelli.

Should you want to explore the whole region, definitely plan a day or two. It takes around two hours to drive all the way around the lake and see both the California and Nevada sides, but you’ll want to stop off and explore the little villages – including South Lake Tahoe, Emerald Bay, Tahoe City, Incline Village, Sand Harbor, and Stateline.

What We Do

I love Squaw Valley – the host of the 1960 Olympic Games. The village, the gondola, the restaurants and the hotel always make us feel at home. It is on the pricey side to stay at the hotel, but even just visiting puts you into the local spirit.

We also enjoy hiking around the lake, finding new adventure courses in the summer, shopping and exploring in Truckee, and snuggling up next to a fire-pit when the cool nights set in. It’s truly a beautiful destination year-round. Even in the winter, most days are still nice enough to leave your heavy coat at home and play in the snow. It’s Cal-Neva fabulous!
