Your Guide to Tahoe - Best time to Visit for Family Fun!

Marin Mommies presents a sponsored article from Tahoe Luxury Properties.

Tahoe offers so much more than winter sports. Sure, it’s a winter wonderland of skiing and snowboarding, snow tubing, sledding, ice skating, and snow-filled fun. But there’s also a packed calendar with unique events to make your Tahoe memories for a lifetime. As long time locals, we put together a list of our favorite kid-centric events.

Traveler’s Tip: Plan ahead for the best selection of lodging options closest to the events you want to attend.
