Outstanding views, plenty of recreation opportunities and the finest lodging in the pines await this Cinco de Mayo weekend The Ridge Tahoe.
There’s no other place quite like South Shore Tahoe – where you can hit the beach, take a boat ride, tear through single track trails on a mountain bike or climb to the top of a mountain during the day and spend the night exploring South Shore’s fiesta hot spots for the ultimate Cinco de Mayo celebration.
Dining and drink options can be found onsite at the Ridge Tahoe’s Hungry Bear Restaurant, or have the bartender at the Bear Trap Bar mix you up a frozen Margarita on the rocks with salt.
If you’re looking to venture out to spend the holiday, The Ridge Tahoe offers regular shuttle buses to the casino core through BlueGo public transit which offers additional transportation around the South Shore.
The fiesta begins early with the Cinco De Mayo Festival at Heavenly Mountain Resort’s California Main Lodge, Friday, May 3 from 5 – 10 p.m. This 10th annual community fundraiser and locals’ favorite party features a Mariachi band, traditional dancers, great food from South Shore area Mexican restaurants and raffle prizes.
Within walking distance from The Ridge is the Fox and Hound Lake Tahoe Bar and Grill, which promises plenty of food and drink specials with a zesty Cinco de Mayo twist.
Nothing spells south of the border at South Shore more than Cabo Wabo Cantina inside Harveys Lake Tahoe. Red Rocker Sammy Hagar lent his name and franchise to this hotspot that serves every any kind of Margarita possible and delicious food. As a pre-party warmup, Sammy will perform at Harrah’s Friday and Saturday nights inside the South Shore room.
Whether you’re hungry or thirsty, there’s nothing quite like ice-cold Margaritas found at Café del Soul inside MontBleu Resort, Casino & Spa. Cinco de Mayo festivities will go on all day, including 99-cent Margaritas and tacos.
Latin Soul inside Lakeside Inn and Casino offers authentic Mexican fare and has some of the tangiest Margaritas in town. Your best best is to come early and expect to stay through dinner.
Voted Tahoe’s Best Margarita and Mexican Restaurant by Tahoe South locals, The Cantina Bar and Grill is where the food comes piping hot and the Margaritas are blended anyway you like.
