What better way to spend a leisurely Saturday summer day than to stroll the sumptuously lovely gardens of the area. This year Lake of the Sky Garden Club invites you to discover some of the North Shore’s finest hidden gardens.  They will be holding their 28th annual garden tour on Saturday, July 30, 2016, from 10 am to 4 pm.

View creative landscapes throughout the area, or just get inspired to add to your own garden. A self guided tour, the best way to experience the garden tour is to grab a bunch of your friends and carpool to the various sites. Stop for lunch along the way at one of North Lake Tahoe’s various fine restaurants, many featuring outdoor seating along the lake.

Last years Lake of the Sky Garden Tour was in Incline Village, Nevada.  We wandered through grounds that were everything from modest homes (a relative term for Lake Tahoe, I’ll grant you) to massive, lake front estates. The weather was perfect, the gardens were lovely, and all in all, it made for a very pleasant – and inspiring afternoon.

This year’s 2014 garden tour will take place at the ‘Magical West Shore’ of Lake Tahoe on July 26, 2014.  A self guided tour, you can pick up tickets at most local plant nurseries. (Be sure to bring cash or checks. Lake of the Sky does not accept credit or debit cards as payment for this event.) And DO get your tickets early. The yearly Garden Tour always sells out quickly. You most probably will not be able to find a ticket for love or money on the day of the event.

Wear comfy walking shoes, bring water, and a camera. Carpool if you can, as parking is often limited. We found that starting mid morning or later was  best, and do plan to take a break for lunch at one of the eateries that dot the west shore of Lake Tahoe.  (Sunnyside Resort, Firesign Cafe, Chambers Landing, The West Shore Cafe, along with a few pizza parlors and deli’s.  I happen to like the sandwiches at the Tahoma PDQ market.)  Most folks start the tour when it opens, and by taking a lunch break, you can miss most of the crowds, as they have wandered off elsewhere by the afternoon.  Do hang on to your ticket when you’re done with the tour, as most of the local plant nurseries give special discounts on that day with proof of purchase of the tour.
