Go Full On Fall this Month

Autumn goes by way too fast and sometimes there isn’t enough time to wrap yourself in your favorite scarf, grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte and revel in the fall of it all. To ensure that you have a full on fall experience that will get you through until the next year, we’ve compiled a list of must-dos this fall at Lake Tahoe.

Apple Hill
Apple Hill is a fall fan’s favorite, with rolling apple orchards, wineries, and tons of baked goods made from fresh produce. You can pick your own apples, sip apple cider, pick out that perfect pumpkin, have a picnic, eat your weight in fudge… and much more.

Get Crafty
Spooky sun catchers and scary paintings are the names of the game this fall season at the Kids Club! Parents can get a break – and so can the kids with fun crafts that also double as souvenirs. The Kids Club is in the Terrace building on the third floor. Dial #4FUN when on-site to register for one of the many Kids Club activities.

Hope Valley
One of the best spots for fall colors is Hope Valley. South of Lake Tahoe, this area is full of aspen groves that turn the golden tones that Instagrammers dream of and you can capture after a quick 30-minute drive from the Ridge Tahoe.

Scary Movies
Daily showings at 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. in our Movie Theater in the Ridge Resort Center will feature seasonal favorites. See the weekly Ridge Guide for our current movie line up. Or opt for a night in with a fire roaring in your Ridge Tahoe suite. Curl up with a loved one and scare yourself senseless with a scary movie!

Cruise the Lake
Lake Tahoe Cruises operates through the fall season with the M.S. Dixie II cruising from Zephyr Cove to Emerald Bay and back daily. Ridge guests receive discounted tickets when purchased at the Ridge Market Place.

Beach Days
While it’s a bit too chilly to swim in the water this time of the year, beach days are still possible and a great option for a picnic or sunset. Pick up a few to go items from the Bistro or Market Place and make yourself at home on one of Tahoe’s many shores.

Photo Shoot
The golden hour, which happens right before sunrise or sunset, is an ideal time to take photographs. What could make it even better? Autumn hues! Head to one of your favorite spots adorned with fall foliage and start snapping away!

Happy Fall!
