By: Sam Pinsky

Summer may be winding down, but there’s still plenty of fun in the sun waiting for you along Lake Tahoe’s south shore. There’s more to this special place than pure outdoor recreation, though. Check out our ideas to see a different side of Big Blue.

Heavenly Village Summer Concert Series

The Shops at Heavenly Village will host free outdoor concerts every Friday and Saturday evening – Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day – from 5:45 to 9:15 pm. Their concerts are free of charge and welcome to all friends, families, and solo wanderers alike. These concerts are perfectly timed to watch the sunset. It’s not too early or too late, making it perfect for both early birds and night owls. Being located at The Shops, you can indulge in some retail therapy before or after the concert. From boutique stores to nice restaurants, the options to compliment your evening are endless.

Bike Big Blue

In September, South Lake Tahoe becomes a haven for bikers. As summer turns to fall, the already stunning trails and roads around Lake Tahoe become full of changing foliage, making the views even more breathtaking. The mountainous terrain offers a range of challenges for mountain bikers, with trails through dense forests, along ridge lines, and beside beautiful streams. Meanwhile, road cyclists can enjoy the relatively cooler temperatures while cruising the scenic roads around the lake. The combination of high altitude, pristine nature, and a network of well-maintained paths makes biking in South Lake Tahoe this September a memorable adventure for riders of all levels.

Kane Brown at Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena

Kane Brown in South Lake Tahoe promises to be a memorable night. His blend of country melodies and soulful lyrics has created a loyal fanbase that makes for a great atmosphere at his shows. And set against the awesome backdrop of South Lake Tahoe, this concert will be a bit more special than most. Combining Kane Brown’s musical prowess with the natural beauty surrounding the concert, this concert is sure to be an amazing event for all who attend.

Be a Next Level Visitor

No matter what you decide to do around Lake Tahoe’s south shore, be sure to leave with everything you brought with you and make sure it is properly thrown away. Some trash areas may be full, so plan to dispose of your waste when you get back to where you’re staying.

You could even be a next-level steward and pick up a few pieces of discarded trash while you’re there. Cleaning up a few small pieces of plastic or bringing an extra dog waste bag can go a long way toward protecting Lake Tahoe’s wildlife, clear water, and breathtaking views.
