For women who are looking for a trip to the great outdoors, but with the creature comforts that we love and enjoy, Lake Tahoe is the answer. Situated on the Border of California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe is one of the top destinations for women who love nature and who also want a place to unwind and relax. The natural beauty that surrounds this location makes it the perfect getaway for any occasion. And with so much to do, women flock here to take advantage of the beautiful scenery and fun activities. One great place to stay at the Lake is Hollys Place.
Here are the top 10 things for women to experience while in Lake Tahoe:
- Take a Photographic Hiking Trip – There are plenty of hiking trails available in Lake Tahoe, but to add another fun twist, try taking a day hike with capturing beautiful scenery as the focus. Photographic tours with a guide are best so they can direct you to the most scenic areas. Simply start hiking and whenever you see a scene that can be captured well on film, snap a photo. You will be left with wonderful memories and beautiful photographs to frame, use as cards, or scrapbook with when you return home.
