M.S Dixie II Sunset Dinner Cruise

263 reviews
Watch the sun slip behind the mountains on a Lake Tahoe dinner cruise aboard the M.S. Dixie II, and enjoy champagne, live music and an elegant dinner on the water. Dance to tunes from the local Steve Walker Band, see a spectacular Sierra sunset, then sit down for a freshly prepared meal. Enjoy selections like grass-fed beef or trout, organic greens, and vegetables. Finish the evening with fresh berries and cake as the first stars appear above the peaks, and Lake Tahoe’s scenic shoreline is illuminated.

We were able to get a spot in the parking lot around 3 PM on a Saturday. We took a walk along a trail that heads straight up the mountain, below the gondolas, until it terminates in a large outcropping of boulders with some nice views of Lake Tahoe. We could have backtracked and found more trails. The short walk was mostly uphill, so we decided to head back to the car. It was a pleasant experience overall. There were very few other hikers on the trail, which was nice.

We got a little lost. We were headed for the 'rim trail' (for a true panorama of the area but missed the turn when the trail we were on split in 2. If you're heading to the rim trail, remember that when you see a trail heading to the left via a few natural stone steps, take that one (don't continue walking straight). Although there was a trail marker there, the left turn was not marked (unless you looked on the BACK of the trail marker which, of course, we did not until we ended up on a 'city street' and turned around). Even without making that turn, we came upon a fantastic vista point that 'ticked all of the boxes'. Just use care in climbing the rocks up to this point (there are easier ways through the rocks; explore your options before hoisting yourself up). The trail itself, though was gorgeous. One of my pet peeves about hiking are switchbacks (where the trail goes back and forth across the face of the mountain so you have the same view over and over). There was none of this, here. The trail meandered and every section was new, unique, and beautiful. Don't miss this hike (even if you only do the shorter, lower one that we did).

The park entrance is only steps away from the center of South Lake Tahoe and offers a great escape from the crowds. Hiking trails abound throughout the park and vary in degree of difficulty so there are trails for all levels of hikers. The TRT connector was improved and the new trail with switch-backs now provides a pleasant hike to the waterfall for all levels of hikers.

The trails go under the gondola. At first we thought it was a dud being so close to the main drag, but after a few minutes you got above noise and it was a very nice hike with lots of views. Some points seemed to have other hikers and mountain bikers.

Van Sickle is easy to get to and features some beautiful hiking. The entrance is behind the Marriott Vacation Club so you can walk to it from anywhere in town. There's a nice hike up to some quaint falls that will provide breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding area. And there's a longer loop hike you can do if want to log more time on the side of the mountain.
