Are you struggling to think of the perfect Mother’s Day present? We all want to show that special woman in our lives how much they mean to us. Show her how much you care, by doing something beyond just flowers and a nicely signed hallmark card. A trip to beautiful Lake Tahoe is sure to create a memorable experience that she’ll treasure for a lifetime. Here are a few ideas that are sure to impress and provide the perfect backdrop for Instagram-worthy photo memories.

Glen Alpine Falls

Glen Alpine Falls

May is the perfect time to catch the roaring waterfalls at the Glen Alpine Falls. The melting snowpack from the surrounding peaks is prime for viewing until early summer. Lower Glen Alpine Falls is easily accessible as it only steps from the road. You can get very close to the falls, and feel the water spray as it washes down the 60-foot multi-tier rock beds. From the bottom of the falls you can feel the rushing water coming at you, but venture to top and see the calm waters that feed the falls, for a different experience. Before making your way to falls spend some time walking the historic grounds of the Glen Alpine Springs Resort. The resort buildings were designed by renowned architect, Bernard Maybeck, designer of the San Francisco Palace of Fine Art.

Riva Grill Mother’s Day Brunch

Located just a half mile from Hotel Azure, borrow a pair of complimentary beach cruisers from the hotel and leisurely make your way to ski run marina. The culinary team has assembled a perfect Mother’s Day brunch that includes Prime rib and oven-roasted turkey carving stations, made-to-order omelet station, and assorted entrees and desserts. Enjoy Riva’s outdoor patio seating area and take in some of the best views of Lake Tahoe for a nice relaxing day.

M.S. Dixie II Brunch Cruise

There’s no better way to see the sights of Emerald Bay than from the water. The 500 passenger paddle wheel M.S. Dixie II does not disappoint, offering up the breath-taking views of Emerald Bay and Fannette Island Tea House, along with a mouthwatering buffet. The two-hour cruise takes off from the Zephyr Cove Marina and is a one of a kind experience only found in Lake Tahoe.

Cave Rock Lookout

The lookout point from the top of Cave Rock has spectacular views of Lake Tahoe that are hard to beat. The trail is great if you're limited on time or want a hike that's short, quick, and straight to the point. The hike follows a wide dirt path with beautiful views of the lake along the way. For the best views, navigate the pile of rocks to reach the top. From the top lookout, you can see the different hues of blue water around the lake. The sunsets from this lookout point are some of the best in Lake Tahoe.
