The clear blue waters of Lake Tahoe beckon travelers to a cozy retreat between the borders of Nevada and California. Visitors can find outdoor activities for every taste all year long — and the Halloween season is no different.
Find local haunts and family fun just a short drive away from your Diamond Resorts suite in this short guide to Halloween in South Lake Tahoe.
Searching for a truly haunted mansion to explore this Halloween? Look no further than the Nevada Governor’s Mansion in Carson City. This ghostly site is about a 45-minute drive northeast of Diamond’s Lake Tahoe Vacation Resort. The mansion has reportedly been haunted by the spirits of a woman and a young girl for several years, as noticed by residents, staff and guests. At night, some witnesses have heard footsteps on the stairs, seen doors that seem to have opened themselves and glimpsed these ghosts on the second floor of the mansion. It’s said that you can even feel a cold spot, which is a common sign of a ghostly presence, if you stand near the grandfather clock on the first floor.
Fun for the Whole Family
For families looking for a safe candy-filled night, check out the Downtown Halloween Trick-or-Treat event on the northwest edge of the lake. Drive about an hour up the beautiful lakeside to start in Heritage plaza. Then, make your way through local shops and businesses to collect a hefty stash of candy for the kids. This free event takes place on October 31 from 4-6 p.m. The little ones will have a blast and parents can enjoy immersing themselves in the local culture as you make your way through Downtown Tahoe.
