June without the gloom

Let the Sunshine In Summer Weekend Guide June 1st Tahoe U Blog

June is finally here, and it brought with it sunshine and warm weather. This weekend is shaping up to be pretty close to perfect with high 70s and not a cloud in sight. We have a few fun things we recommend going on around Truckee and the lake this weekend in our first Summer Weekend Guide.

Truckee Running Festival | 6/3 7:00 AM - 2:00 PM 

One of the best ways to experience the views around here is on a nice run. The air is so clean up here that it's quite refreshing. The Truckee Running Festival is part of the Tahoe Trail Running Series and is fundraising for Girls On The Run Sierras. With a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, and Kid Run there's a level for every type of runner.

Bear photo opp at Tahoe University

Tahoe University (duh)

And of course we always recommend a little shopping with a pit stop at Tahoe University! Our patio is open and WiFi-enabled, and our bear friend is there to greet you and take a photo, plus he's a really great listener. Mark your calendars for June 14th, the first Truckee Thursday. We'll be revealing our bear's name and celebrating his arrival with a party in the patio. Details coming soon.

We have lots of new fun items for summer and look forward to hopefully seeing you this weekend!
