note from our publisher

Wow, what a difference a year makes. In 2020, we were busy pivoting and wondering what was closed, where to get a mask, and who had the best takeout. This year, thanks to science, vaccines and time, we now look forward to getting back to some sort of normalcy. With our hybrid Spring/Summer 2021 issue, we’ve included inspired articles highlighting great things going on in the area. Take a walking tour through Weird Reno’s unusual past. Fishing Feels Good highlights great ways to enjoy an amazing outdoor pastime and Fierce Fire is a must read to truly understand the dangers of and what we can all do to stop wildfires. Getaway has also created a dedicated Getaway App where you can download and access all our issues. Feel free to sign up…

trails less traveled

W hether you’re visiting the Lake Tahoe area, or a local, one advantage to this region is the ability to escape crowds, if you know where to go. Whether biking, hiking, or paddle boarding, there are opportunities to find that secluded spot to enjoy nature, breathe the crisp mountain air, and get lost in your thoughts. In these crazy, fast-paced times, it is so valuable to find much needed serenity whenever possible. The High Sierra has achieved momentous popularity in recent years and seclusion gets harder and harder to find. During busy weekends, some spots can resemble traffic on an L.A. freeway.

lake tahoe golf course golfing delight

An avid golfer for most of my life, I like golf courses that test my game and mesmerize my mind with outstanding views. Lake Tahoe Golf Course not only achieves this goal, it exceeds all my expectations. Approaching the first tee, you’re smacked in the face with 360-degree views. Step up to the tee box with driver in hand and you’ll be staring at Dick’s Peak and Mt. Tallac. This is a sure sign for a spectacular day. Hole 6, my favorite hole, not because it was my first birdie the last time I golfed the course, but rather for it’s beauty. The Upper Truckee River flows freely right in front of you on the tee box and then again on the green. Just listening to the river not only calmed my…

fishing feels good

There is an old saying; “The worst day of fishing is better than the best day of work!” This couldn’t be more true in the High Sierra, where countless options to spend a calm day on a lake, wading in a stream, are available, while enjoying the challenge of catching one’s dinner. Whether a novice or a veteran angler, the opportunities available in the Lake Tahoe area are numerous. Regardless of the type of fishing you prefer, or level of experience, a day outside in the clean air, under clear blue skies, provides an unforgettable day. One of the unique ways to enjoy fishing on Lake Tahoe is through one of the many boat charter services. Tahoe Sport Fishing has provided fishing excursions for locals and visitors since 1953. With a fleet of eight…

hankering for a side of history

DINING AND IMBIBING IN HISTORIC REGIONAL ESTABLISHMENTS. Our region was settled during the mining boom in the mid-1800s. History permeates the stunning peaks and valleys strewn throughout the Reno-Tahoe area, rolling into the Carson Valley. Today, many structures remain from the original foundation of communities, reminding us of the past, and allowing us to savor stories along with our meals and beverages. CARSON CRAFTED Nevada’s historic capital, Carson City, emerged after settlers established nearby towns in the picturesque Carson Valley. Many testaments to the area’s past still exist, serving customers great food and drinks within walls dating back over 150 years. The Union in Carson City is an eatery, brewpub and coffee house in one, located on Carson City’s main street, still teeming with antiquity. Beers such as The Governor Hefeweizen pay tribute to…
