People Watch

The Village at Northstar
3001 Northstar Drive, Truckee, CA 96161
In the busy months, the village is packed and a great place to people-watch. Find a spot in a cabana next to the ice/skate rink, roast some marshmallows and take in the sights.

Catch a Band

Crystal Bay Club
14 State Highway 28, Crystal Bay, NV 89402
Most nights of the week in the Red Room, deejays and bands play for free. Lots of talent rolls through CBC and there are cheap drinks too.

Have Fun for Free

Music in the Park
During the summer Wednesday evenings at the Truckee Regional Park, Fridays in Kings Beach, and Sundays at Commons Beach in Tahoe City provide nights of fun for zero dollars. Bring a blanket and chairs, some snacks and beverages, and enjoy a rockin' good time.
