Seek adventure in South Lake Tahoe, California
South Lake Tahoe is known by many as “America's All-Year Playground” for good reason. From skiing and snowboarding in the winter to camping, water sports, biking and hiking in the milder months, visitors to this adventurous Californian city in the Sierra Nevada Mountains are never without outdoors fun. At nighttime, stay indoors and try your luck at the poker tables, or take in a show at one of the high-end casinos within walking distance of the lake. Soak up the tranquil surroundings, with mountains rising high above the lush, greenery-lined waters.
Things to see and do
Tahoe Queen and the M.S. Dixie II
Visitors to Lake Tahoe can experience the best of its scenery with an engaging boat cruise. Whether you hop on board for a daytime cruise or a sunset sailing, you'll enjoy live entertainment and fabulous food aboard the Tahoe Queen and the M.S. Dixie II. Perfect for intimate outings or even large group activities, this is one to add to your itinerary.
Zephyr Cove Resort
If water sports like parasailing, water skiing or wakeboarding get your heart pumping, then visit the private Zephyr Cove Resort Marina. Offering a private, mile-long sandy beach, it's the perfect place to enjoy a book while soaking up some rays or splashing in the cool water.
South Lake Tahoe has every level of biking trail from easy, level bike paths to rigorous downhill slopes like Saxon Creek Trail. The entire area is deemed a Bike-Friendly Community, so you'll find plenty of rental and retail bike shops for all your bike-related needs.
Travelers can enjoy year-round ice skating at the South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena with a large National Hockey League-sized skating rink, lessons and skate rentals. For a memorable wintertime experience, enjoy live music and open-air ice skating at Heavenly Village's ice rink.
Heavenly scenic gondola rides
Take a mountain gondola ride 2.4 miles up to the top of Heavenly Mountain, stop off halfway at the Observation Deck for incredible views of Lake Tahoe and Carson Valley, then spend the day skiing. Enjoy a cappuccino from the Café Blue or snatch up some souvenirs at the Gondola Sports Shop to take home.
