Busy July

By Tim Hauserman
Fourth of July is past us, so of course the rest of the summer will be all about warm and lazy days with nothing to do. Poor locals and Tahoe visitors, all we have to do in Tahoe City is:
Wednesday night movie nights on the Commons Beach
Thursday Farmers Market
Sunday Concerts on the Beach
Tahoe Gal Cruises
Water Shuttles between Carnelian Bay and Homewood
Lake Tahoe Music Festivals 
First Fridays
Gatekeepers Concerts at the Park
Sunset kayak tours
Art Tours
Historic Walking Tours
1860s Afternoon tea
Experimental Expo
And then of course you can:
Bike ride along the Truckee River Bike Trail
Hike the Tahoe Rim Trail to Page Meadows to the south or glorious views of Lake Tahoe to the north
Walk on the Lakeside Trail
Kayak and paddleboard anywhere and everywhere
Shop at one or all of the shops at The Cobblestone
Visit a museum-Gatekeepers, Watson Cabin, Sierra Ski History and 1960 Winter Olympic Games Museum
Watch a movie in the Art Haus Cinema set to open soon.
Dine with a view of Lake Tahoe
Play Golf on the Tahoe City Golf Course
Swim in Lake Tahoe, swim in the Truckee River, drive to Meeks Bay and then hike to Crag Lake for a swim in a mountain lake. 
Stop by the Tahoe City Visitor Center
Walk over Fanny Bridge and behind the Truckee River Dam
Take the kids to play at The Commons Beach playground, while you sit along the lake and read a book
