Second chances can be really important with areas sometimes. My first visit to the Lake Tahoe area was underwhelming to say the least. It wasn't the main focus of the trip, and it was just supposed to be a bonus place to see. The beach I stopped at that time made the lake seriously seem like it could have been any lake, and I couldn't see why Lake Tahoe has the reputation it does.
Fast forward a couple of years and I spent a weekend at Lake Tahoe for my best friend's brother's wedding. I was determined to give Tahoe a second chance, so in the downtime during our stay we hiked on the resort property and made sure to visit a local state park, which did a lot to improve my opinion of the area. When we were heading out we decided to drive around the part of the lake that we had not driven around yet, and it really gave me a chance to see why Lake Tahoe draws people in! Just thinking about the difference between the two visits makes me think I should probably give more dissapointing places second chances.
