Summer is over and, for most people, that means vacations are over and it’s time to get back to the daily grind.
However, Fall is also a beautiful time of the year and it’s well worth it to check out some new destinations just to experience the season.
Here are some locations you can have a small adventure of seeing nature’s journey to sleep with all the yellows, burnt oranges, and reds fall has to offer.
A location no stranger to its beauty that it has detailed guides on biking and hiking trails, driving tours, peak season information and the best time and suggested settings for photography.
You can explore by boat or by land, with many trail options from the main highways or as deep as a back-country dirt road. This also means that paddleboarding is definitely an option for visitors! Check around for events and join up with other SUP enthusiasts basking in the beauty of nature.

Starting around the end of September, fall foliage begins to show in Lake Tahoe. For the best places to see the fall foliage is in South Lake Tahoe at Hope Valley or Fallen Leaf Lake.
With that in mind, just because it’s fall doesn’t mean you can’t take part in some water activity. You can bring your SUP to the lake while you take it all in!
