Maybe it’s the blue skies. Or perhaps the crystal-clear turquoise water. Or we bet it’s the 300+ days of sunshine every year. Well, we don’t know exactly, but people are often referring to Tahoe as “paradise.” And we tend to agree. Between the unparalleled natural beauty and all the fun Tahoe South offers, it is a top-notch location for destination weddings, but why stop there? Why not extend the celebration of your union with an equally memorable honeymoon in Tahoe?

No matter what time of year you decide to honeymoon, Tahoe South offers so much — from relaxing on the beach to vigorous hikes up to ah-mazing overlooks, golfing, biking, paddleboarding, and parasailing to skiing, boarding, snowshoeing, or cuddling up next to a blazing fire. But no worries if you’re not really the outdoorsy type. Check out the nightly shows, casinos, shopping, brew pubs, and restaurants galore, or plan a leisurely sightseeing drive around the lake. Tahoe South has got something for just about everyone. And what better way to kick off your marriage than spending some quality time together in paradise?

A Winter or Spring Honeymoon in Tahoe

Between awe-inspiring outdoor activities and endless opportunities to get cozy in a premiere resort, a winter or spring honeymoon in Tahoe South couldn’t be more alluring. Invigorate your active side by hitting the slopes, exploring on snowshoes, or going for a twirl in ice skates, then bring a little fairy tale to your romance with a sleigh ride. In terms of where to stay, you can’t go wrong, but you can go really, really right with a cozy cabin at Zephyr Cove Resort or booking a room at The Ridge Tahoe so you can slip into an outdoor hot tub whenever the mood strikes (which will probably be often).

Heating up Your Honeymoon in Tahoe

For many, it doesn’t get much better than the idea of a honeymoon in the summer or fall, especially in Tahoe South where you’ll be surrounded by the lake, mountains, beaches and waterfalls. Whether your idea of getting active means working up a sweat with hiking, biking or kayaking, getting intensely leisurely with beaching and boating, or getting a little extreme with hot air ballooning, parasailing or a gondola ride, Tahoe South has got what you want. And for anyone looking for romance overload, we’ve got five words for you: sunset horse-drawn carriage ride. And there’s also the romantic sunset dinner cruise by way of historic Mississippi paddle wheeler. The authentic Lake Tahoe Cruises vessel sets sail from Zephyr Cove and meanders into picturesque Emerald Bay.

Decompress During Your Honeymoon in Tahoe

Whether your muscles are aching from a nine-mile hike or your honeymoon is all about living a life of leisure, a spa day or couple’s massage is practically mandatory. Indulge at The Landing’s day spa, or bliss out in your own room with The Ridge Tahoe’s in-room couple’s massage.
