My Fiance and I are thinking of planning our July 2013 honeywmoon to include 5-6 days over July 4th in Lake Tahoe at the Marriott Grande Residence. We would love to do some short hikes, bike, take the ski lift/tram to he top of the mountain, maybe a river raft, and probably a cruise on the lake. - and of course enjoy the fireworks on the 4h. It looks like there are festivities all week long the week of the 4th.. Just wondering if it will be so crowded it will be not so pleasant to drive around and tour the area. (we have never been there) Or is the celebration/fireworks of the 4th worth putting up with the crowds. We could delay to the week of July 13th, but of course, we would miss the fireworks display.
One thing we thought of was staying farther north for the , maybe closer to the Redwoods Park area... Then come down to Tahoe AFTER the July 4th weekend. ANy suggestion for a nice place to stay closer to the Redwoods?? Thanks for any input.
