In the heart of South Lake Tahoe, at the base of the Heavenly Gondola, lies an entire village dedicated to your entertainment. The Heavenly Village is the perfect place to spend a day sightseeing, shopping, eating and relaxing – a definite “must do” on your Lake Tahoe vacation list.
The Shops at Heavenly Village feature a variety of stores ranging from trendy clothing and accessories to sporting equipment and art. Pacific Crest Gallery, Great Outdoor Clothing Co., High Chaparral Clothing, Patagonia Heavenly, Sealed With A Kiss, Powder House Sports, and Quiksilver are among the stores (see full list and photo gallery below). Shop, eat, and watch a movie at the 8-plex cinema, or try ice skating or miniature golf at the seasonally open outdoor pavilion. Special events are planned throughout the year, so bring the whole family and soak up the beautiful Lake Tahoe sun at The Shops at Heavenly Village. There is covered parking available, but there is a fee.
South Lake Tahoe Shopping
The Shops at Heavenly Village is THE shopping center of South Lake Tahoe. Enjoy the traditional Tahoe ambience with a distinct European village flair…meandering cobblestone sidewalks, wooden archways, covered walkways, open bonfire pits, clock tower, stone fountain and more. The village offers an intriguingly eclectic mix of upscale lifestyle apparel and accessories, sporting goods, fine arts, jewelry and unique gifts. For the avid skier, visit the Powder House for the largest selection of demo skis at the lake and a huge selection of brand-name ski apparel. Relish in an afternoon of shopping and then revive yourself with a latte.
Food & Drink
The village offers a wide array of food and drink choices. You are certain to find exactly what you are craving. Enjoy lunch or dinner in one of the tantalizing eateries, or admire the view from a mountaintop bistro while feasting on antipasto platters, shrimp cocktail or specialty sandwiches and an impressive selection of fine regional wines. Heavenly offers the Appetite for Life healthy food initiative by eliminating trans fats from the cooking oils and offering hormone-free beef and poultry as well as organic dairy products at all on-mountain eateries.
In the center of it all is the Heavenly Gondola, providing visitors the opportunity to view Lake Tahoe in all its glory. Capture an aerial view of the lake and mountains, adding your very own artistic flair, with a ride up the Gondola for a panoramic view of the lake that is only found in magazines and art studios. The awe-inspiring journey begins at Heavenly Village, where the Gondola goes 2.4 miles up the mountain to 9,123 feet, nearly 3,000 feet above the lake. The ride itself is stunning and offers unparalleled views of the desolation wilderness, Carson Valley, and of course, the sparkling waters of Lake Tahoe.
Two-thirds of the way up the mountainside, the Deck offers the perfect sightseeing venue. Nestled among massive granite boulders, the 14,000-square-foot Deck provides high-powered viewing telescopes that allow visitors a close-up look at some of the destination’s best-known landmarks, including Emerald Bay, Mount Tallac and Cascade Falls.
The village offers everything you need for a full day of fun, from enjoying the music, lights and winter ambience of the South Shore’s only outdoor ice-rink to relaxing by the fireside with a glass of Merlot, to “shop-til-you-drop” stores and galleries. There’s something for everyone at The Shops at Heavenly Village.
