If you don't have any plans for New Years and are still thinking of what to do with yourself, you should consider heading up to South Lake Tahoe. The scene is gonna be crackin' up here and there will be plenty of activities going down all weekend.
There's so much stuff going on you're gonna need some help deciding what to do. I've narrowed it down to the best things to do on your last days of 2011.
Heavenly HolidaysThe best day of Heavenly Holidays is New Years Eve. The Village turns into a party, the streets are shut down, and all of South Lake comes out for the free concert and for the best firework show in Tahoe. Click here for a complete schedule of Heavenly Holidays and to check out the line up. All the fun begins December 19th.
Casino PartiesPretty much all the casinos have big New Years parties. If you like to party indoors and enjoy the club scene, you will love the scene in South Lake. Check out Montbleu Casino basically the whole casino turns into a party. There's a pool party as well as a party at Club Blu. Harrah's also has quite the scene going on throughout the casino with a NYE party in Vex nightclub.
Snowglobe Music FestivalThe Snowglobe Music Festival in South Lake has one of the best line-ups of all time. The festival runs from December 29 to the 31 and tickets are going fast. A few headliners are Thievery Corporation, Bassnectar, Glitch Mob, Dilated Peoples, and one of my personal favorites, Pretty Lights. This festival is going to be sick and the best part about it is that everyday it kicks off in the afternoon so you can still hit the mountain before all the shows.
Sking/Riding at HeavenlyHopefully by the time all the partying and snow dancing goes down, it should bring in some fresh snow just in time for 2012. Snow is in the forecast for the holidays and there are possibilities of a white Christmas. Heavenly had the most terrain open in Tahoe and has the best terrain so theres no reason to not head up to @skiheavenly this New Years Eve.
