Forever Holiday

January 2, 2010

After celebration of the New Year, and Christmas the week before that, many think it’s all over for a year or at least until July 4th rolls around. This, however, is not so.

You’ve been up here enough to realize Lake Tahoe is not just another place. It’s special. It has scenic qualities that are not duplicated anywhere else in the world. Add to that the crystal clear water of the lake and the crisp, clean mountain air and one might think it just can’t get any better…but there’s more.

When you factor in year around recreation of every imaginable kind and stir in 24 hour gambling and entertainment the end result is one huge, non-stop celebration.

Winter has only just gotten started. It can only get better. Gather up the family and c’mon up here and enjoy the fun. There is always something exciting to do.

Grover Hot Springs

Now folks, this is a super neat place to visit. It is perfect for people who love the mountains. Just consider…sitting in a pool filled with 102-105 degree water from 5 natural hot springs. Add to that it’s all outdoors so while you soak you are surrounded by the beauty of 10,000 foot mountains and pine forests. Talk about an experience!

Grover Hot Springs, a part of the California State Park system, is open all year. In fact, if you’re sitting in that hot spring water during mid-winter and the snow begins falling the effect is something you’ll not soon forget.

It only takes about 30-45 minutes to drive there from South Lake Tahoe. For more information check their website link below.

Lots of people know about Lake Tahoe’s crystal clear waters, but did you know that there’s a famous hot-spring resort just 20 minutes away from its south shore? Walley’s Resort hosts 7 natural mineral hot-spring pools, a spa, and some of the best dining and wine in the area. In its 135 year history it’s hosted both Mark Twain and Clark Gable, so it’s the place to go if you want celebrity caliber relaxation.

Hot Spring Pools

Mineral infused water heated beneath the earth’s crust bubbles up to the surface into 7 different pools. You can relax in these pools in the shadow of the High Sierra Mountains, and enjoy a steam room and dry saunas.

Spa

Walley’s offers both Swedish and deep tissue massage as well as a whole menu of facials, including a couple just for men!

Wine and Dine

Wine Spectator magazine has given Walley’s wine selection an award of excellence. They offer 300 wines, 34 by the glass. The contemporary American cuisine is some of the best around too. In addition to the regular menu items, the chef prepares a new special entrée every night using the fresh ingredients at hand.
