We made it through the July 4th holiday, but guess what – the week of the American Century Championship is just as popular, if not more so for vacationers to come spend time in paradise! And since it is such a popular time to visit Tahoe, the whole week is jam-packed with fun concerts, activities and events for the whole family to enjoy! Here are just a few of your choices:
Kick off this fun-filled week with country star Tim McGraw on Tuesday night when he plays at the outdoor arena at Harveys! You don’t have to be an avid country music fan to enjoy this show. Didn’t get tickets? The great thing about outdoor shows is you can hear the music while hanging out in town!
The American Century Championship is back for its 24th year, and really could be considered the biggest event of the Summer!
