We settled down for a picnic on the lawn of Commons Beach, which had a small sand beach and a park for the kids. The kids enjoyed hopping along the rocks that dotted the edge of the lake as well as exploring the nearby pier.
Our visit to the beach was the perfect way to escape the heat in Truckee and enjoy the beauty of Lake Tahoe. Despite the low water levels, the views were still spectacular and provided a calming backdrop to enjoy the afternoon as a family.

The details: Tahoe City is located on the Northwestern edge of Lake Tahoe and is about a 15 minute drive from Truckee. Parking and Lake access are free. There are a number of places to eat/drink in town as well as a couple of grocery stores if you want to pick up some picnic goodies. This is an area I hope to explore more this summer when we return to Tahoe for a family vacation, so hopefully I will have some new tips on what to do!
