Is there a better place to reflect on the weightier side of Memorial Day than from a scenic, natural setting?

Venture out of the Bay Area this holiday weekend and connect with some of the awesome nature around us. Need some inspiration? You got it!

Tahoe
Maybe you’re a weekend warrior tearing up the mountains during the winter, but have you soaked up the summer sun in Tahoe? Here’s your chance – this weekend marks Lake Tahoe’s 6th Annual Opening Day at the Lake, the official launch of boating season and SUMMER! Dine on discount at one of the many local restaurants offering celebratory specials, time travel to Tahoe’s earlier days at the “Tahoe Twenties” exhibit at the Tahoe Maritime Museum or take a bike ride around the lake. It’s all at your fingertips. Get up there already!
