The North Lake Tahoe Historical Society will be conducting a free Historic Walking Tours of Tahoe City on Saturdays starting at 10am.
Lead by local residents, the tour includes legends, history, facts and figures about the stunning wilderness surrounding the majestic mountain lake, along with shopping and dining tips. Tahoe’s colorful history will unfold in fun stories and legends about the people who have called the lake home.
Family friendly. Mostly flat, easy. Leashed dogs OK. Meet at Gatekeeper’s Museum. $5 donation includes museum admission.
You’ll learn about the significance of our historic landmarks like Watson Cabin located smack dab in the middle of Tahoe City, above Commons Beach.
The free tours highlight points of historic interest, as well as local businesses and favorite hot spots.
The free Walking Tours were researched and developed by NLTHS Board Member Karen Willcuts, professional tour guide.
Tours meet at the Visitors Center next to the fire station, and will end at the Gatekeeper’s Museum. Tours are free, donations are welcome.
Please call the Gatekeeper’s Museum for more details at 530-583-1762.
