Our friendly staff can also give you a local’s insight on the best beaches, spas, shops, museums and galleries. We’re a good resource for nightlife suggestions as well, like live music, dancing and casino action. In our fresh mountain air, an active group is a hungry group. North Lake Tahoe’s nearly 120 eateries bring variety to the table, with rave reviews. A VCB staff member can be at your group’s location to offer menu information, organize a “dine-around” or make multi-restaurant reservations. As your event gets closer, look to us for materials to promote attendance, from colorful conference and travel planners (shipped to you for free), to maps showing points of interest, to digital images and copy points for your own materials.
