North Tahoe is perfect for a summer family vacation and gives you the chance to experience the mountains throughout the region. The crowds are far less than during the winter and it’s great to get up high in the mountains when it’s warm out and the sun is shining. We’ve visited Tahoe plenty of times before, but this was our first vacation with the little ones in tow, so it was a special and new experience. We’ve outlined our itinerary, which was a little slower paced to accommodate nap time and feedings, but also offered just the right amount of fresh air and picturesque views that we crave.
There is something about a stay at The Ritz Carlton that is always a bit magical. Add a coating of snow and a cozy fireplace and you’ll never want to leave. Their Lake Tahoe location is truly a vacation destination in itself. Perched upon a ski hill there are plenty of experiences right at your doorstep. Adventure and luxury are two of our favorite things. They don’t always mix, but The Ritz somehow always delivers.
We love to visit Half Moon Bay when it heats up in the South Bay. You can’t beat the cool ocean breeze and the coastline is just gorgeous. The fresh seafood is also a big plus. With many classic seafood and chowder stops that draw a big crowd, this time we tried out some new spots (for us) that we are excited to share with you. We also crossed a big one off of our bucket list…a stay at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay! Below is an overview of our weekend getaway. Feel free to share your own favorite Half Moon Bay spots in the comments below.
