Ski Vacations and Summer Activities Near Northstar

Things To Do in Northstar

Northstar ski vacations
The area surrounding Northstar, California, is a beautiful woodland surrounding Lake Tahoe. The activities available range from snowboarding to scuba diving, so take a look at the following things to do when planning your Tahoe vacation.

Winter Activities

The slopes around Northstar, California, have been rated some of the best in the nation. In fact, the 1960 Winter Olympics were housed only a stone's throw away. With such excellent skiing available you are sure to love your ski vacation. If you are traveling with a wide range of people, you will find something for everyone to enjoy in the snow. Kids can have fun ice skating or sledding, and less energetic members of the group can opt for a shopping trip, or, if they are feeling adventurous, a dog sledding tour.

Summer Attractions

In the summer, head to the beaches for a beautiful day in the sun, including sand castles, sun tanning, and swimming. Rent a boat and try your hand at water-skiing, or take out a sail boat for an incredible afternoon. You can also go scuba diving, and discover some ship wrecks at the bottom of the lake. In the evenings, come back to the beach for a movie on the beach, or take a walk along the shoreline to watch the stars. With such a clear California sky, the stars shine especially bright as they reflect off of the water.


This California retreat area is full of festivals to help you enjoy your vacation. Spend an afternoon wandering around one of the wine and food tastings, or enjoy an arts festival that embraces the creative side of the community. The Shakespeare festival brings in some literature to your week away, and the Living History Day gives you a taste of what the west was like in a past era.


The food in Northstar, California, has an incredible variety to give you a taste of several cultures. Local haunts are the Wildfire Café and Café 333. Of course, you must try the interesting mix of cultural taste buds found at Ciao Mein Trattoria, or enjoy some good Mexican dinners at Hacienda de la Sierra. With plenty of good grocery stores around, and your own beautiful kitchen, however, you many want to stay in and cook some familiar food from home.


Head across the California line for an evening of drinks and gaming. You will find plenty of chances in the poker rooms and game floors of one of the several casinos. The California shoreline gives you the perfect distance for the chaos of the casinos, but keeps you close enough that you can pop in for a hour or two when you want. The Crystal Bay Club is one of the more well known casinos in the area, so stop in for a classy evening of live music and dancing.

Vacation Homes

Staying in one of the many Northstar vacation homes in California gives you the space and luxury of your own home, with a new and beautiful location. While you have the privacy of your own complete house, you can decide to stay right on the slopes, in town or in a quiet and private location.

Step out your door and walk to the beach, or stop out into the middle of a quaint town afternoon. Wherever you decide you want to go, you know you will keep the luxury of your own room, living space, and kitchen so that you can eat, sleep, and relax on your own time.
