Thinking of slipping away to Lake Tahoe for a weekend of fun? Great idea! Tahoe is an excellent vacation spot, pleasant more-or-less all year round. If you’re looking for a vacation that’s a short distance from Danville, it’s the perfect option.
Here are some sweet deals available at the moment (in South Lake Tahoe) that’ll make your stay a lot more fun – not to mention budget-friendly!
- Scavenger hunt
Get ready for a day of fun, mystery, and excitement! ScavengerHunt.com provides entertaining games for groups of up to 6 people in Lake Tahoe, and for a limited time you can get tickets for two for just $25! Engage your brain in something interesting instead of switching it off. You’ll end up a couple miles away from the starting point, though, so make arrangements to get your car to the end location – see the reviews.
- Snowboarding and skiing
If visiting in the winter, you don’t want to miss the chance to go skiing. Trust me on that. Lake Tahoe is a popular skiing and snowboarding spot, and BlueZone Sports are offering one-day rentals at heavy discounts. Their price for a one-day basic adult snowboard rental is $19 (down from $34.99). Get them before they’re sold out!
- Mexican food and drinks
There’s really nothing better than some good old spicy Mexican food. Oh wait, there is – good old spicy Mexican food at a 50% discount! Yup. Chimayo Street Grill is giving out vouchers that knock almost 50% off the price of food and drinks. It’s a lovely, clean place with Mexican décor, and the servers are pretty friendly.
- Craft beer
The South Lake Brewing Company is offering beer at a 17% discount. The place is nice and atmospheric and has some good IPAs, although we hear some of them are an acquired taste. Regardless, a 17% discount is nothing to sneeze at! If you’ve been meaning to try out some new beers, here’s your chance. You get one beer flight and souvenir glass for $14, and two beer fills and two glasses for $20.
- Supercar driving experience
Sit behind the steering wheel of a Ferrari F430 or Lamborghini Gallardo and drive around an AutoCross course for a heart-thumping, adrenalin-fueled ride. At Calispeed Motorsports you can drive a supercar for $289. Or try out their 6-laps AutoCross challenge (as a driver!) for only $97. It may not be for everyone, but for some, it’ll be an experience to relish. If CM is all sold out, try LTF Adventures.
- Local coffee café
Freel Perk Coffee House and Café are offering a coupon for 50% off. You get $2 worth of coffee for $1. Not a huge amount, but we actually like that, because this way you don’t need to buy an awful lot of stuff to avail the offer. It’s a nice place for a coffee. You can sit there and enjoy the beverage in peace – and the coffee’s pretty darn good, too. Do try it out; we recommend Freel Perk.
