Lake Tahoe - Top 5 activities not to miss from a local's perspective


Ginger Threads Collections Grand Opening in South Lake Tahoe, California

As we get ready to celebrate the grand opening of our flagship brick and mortar storefront/workshop, I reflect back on a few of the memories I have of growing up in South Lake Tahoe, and the subsequent visits I made before moving back in the fall of 2019. For starters, I never truly appreciated the natural beauty and splendor of Lake Tahoe until my early thirties.

I was raised primarily at Lake Tahoe from age 4, but spent a good deal of time in Monterey with my Dad and his family. After high school, I lived on Kaua’i, the Big Island, and O’ahu for a combined 10 years - all stunningly beautiful, picturesque places. So it really took living in spots like Syracuse, NY; Alexandria, VA; and San Antonio, TX for me to realize and appreciate the exquisiteness of Lake Tahoe, and how it always mesmerized me on first glimpse when driving in over the mountain pass for a visit. 

Tahoe is the epitome of a year-round playground, with the endlessly sunny summer days and seeing it’s fair share of snow flurries in the winter (anyone remember 1984???).

    I enjoy reading your history and experiences in Hawaii and other excursions you have taken. Your items on line are beautiful. I gravitate towards the jewelry display. There is definitely something for everyone. I can’t wait to visit the store.
