Great shopping is a walk away from Granlibakken

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

For every getaway vacation to Lake Tahoe, whether it is for an extended stay or for a few days, there’s no better way pick up the vibe and culture than to hit some of the local merchants, shops and restaurants.

Granlibakken is a short 1.4-mile walk, bike ride or drive away from Tahoe City. Here you can stroll the half mile along the shoreline, from Fanny Bridge at the junction of Highway 89 to the Safeway/Lighthouse Shopping Center, and visit a collection of Lake Tahoe boutiques, souvenir and sport shops, and galleries.

When you go shopping in Tahoe City, you’re in for an entirely unique experience — you won’t find any national chains in this mountain town. Quaint shops line the downtown Tahoe City strip, so put on your walking shoes and explore everything from locally made gifts and art, to high-end denim and mountain home décor.

The Boatworks Mall is the only enclosed lakefront shopping mall on the North Shore for year round shopping and dining.
