It’s time to celebrate Dad: Sunday, June 17, is Father’s Day — and there’s no place to observe the occasion like Lake Tahoe.

Whether he’s the type to enjoy outdoor adventure, relaxing with a drink in hand or a high-class meal, the basin offers options for every kind of dad. Check out our suggestions and get to celebrating!


Treat dad to a day at the golf course or time spent on the lake itself — there are plenty of options for both in the basin. Edgewood Tahoe and Lake Tahoe Golf Course are among the South Shore offerings, while Incline Village boasts a few courses on North Shore. Prefer to be active on the water? D.L. Bliss State Park, Sand Harbor and Emerald Bay are iconic locations for kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding.

If your dad is a fan of the current craft beer trend, it’s a good thing you came to Lake Tahoe: Check out South Lake Brewing Company, Sidellis Lake Tahoe, Outpost Brewing Co., Tahoe Mountain Brews, Cold Water Brewery & Grill on South Shore and FiftyFifty Brewing Co. and Alibi Ale Works on the North Shore. You can’t go wrong.

Tahoe Modern Makers hosts a Daddys and Daughters Princess Makeover and Craft extravaganza on Saturday, June 16, from 2-7 p.m. Daughters get pampered with a princess makeover at Imagine Salon and then partake in princess crafting at Tahoe Modern Makers. It’s an all-inclusive date night that also features pizza and refreshments. The event costs $40 per child, and reservations are required: Call 530-600-1616 or 530-600-3388 to secure a spot.

For the North Shore dads who love live music, look no further than Tahoe City’s Concerts at Commons Beach. The free Sunday series kicks off on Father’s Day with a performance from Dead Winter Carpenters, a Tahoe City-based bluegrass and Americana band. The outdoor show begins at 4 p.m. and continues for three hours, offering plenty of time to sit back and relax. Additional information is available at http://www.concertsatcommonsbeach.com.


Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, located in Stateline, hosts special Father’s Day meals at both Park Prime and Alpine Union. The former, an upscale option, serves a 38-ounce tomahawk steak and choice of beer. Alpine Union, the more casual of the two, is set to offer a choice of an 18-ounce king cut roasted prime rib or a 12-ounce queen cut roasted prime rib. The meal also includes draft beer and dessert.
