Every Wednesday, join The Idle Hour for a wine tasting. Each week guests have the opportunity to try a variety of delicious wines from different wineries.

Yoga in the Park

AUGUST 12 and AUGUST 26, 5:30pm - 6:30pm

Join professional yogis for an hour of mental and physical relaxation – all skill levels are welcome. Yoga is a practice that is meant to ground and center you, and what better place to do so than in one of our state parks. This is a donation-based yoga series, with a suggested donation of $15 per class, and all donations go back to state parks.

Please bring your own mat or towel. Masks will be required until you’re on your mats.

Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival


In case you missed it last month, the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival continues for almost all of August. The show features three ambitious actors, clad in classic Converse tennis shoes and armed with an outrageous assortment of outerwear and props, cram the Bard’s entire canon of plays (and sonnets!) into two hours of sheer Elizabethan-esque ecstasy. Perhaps The Today Show captured its spirit best when they said, “If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show!”

Full Moon Guided Kayak Tours

AUGUST 21, 5:30pm - 8:30pm + AUGUST 22, 6pm - 9pm

Tahoe Adventure Company’s Full Moon Guided Kayak Tours have two time slots during two evenings towards the end of April. The first night is the night before the Full Sturgeon Moon, and the second is the night it becomes full. The Sturgeon Moon, known to some as The Red Moon, appears as if it has a rouge tint due to the haze of the late summer skies, and what better way to appreciate it than on Lake Tahoe.
