Lake Tahoe, California

Lake Tahoe, the largest alpine lake in North America bordering California and Nevada and surrounded by the majestic Sierra Nevada offers year-round activities to keep the whole family entertained.

From spring to autumn enjoy the delights of biking, hiking, golfing, and fishing. Take to the water for a lake cruise, boating, paddling, kayaking, or waterskiing, or to the skies for parasailing and get a bird’s eye view of the Lake Tahoe region. Lake Tahoe in winter is the skier’s paradise, whether you prefer downhill or cross-country skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, or snowshoeing. Tahoe has it all in the midst of stunning scenery.

Due to Lake Tahoe straddling the borders of California and Nevada, as well as having a northern resort (below), the hotels, packages, and experiences are split over three sections. Click here for our Lake Tahoe program in Nevada.

South Lake Tahoe

Where Mountain Fun & Lake Life Meet

South Lake Tahoe is the more ‘glitzy’ side of the lake with its eclectic mix of boutiques, galleries, and restaurants. There is so much to keep you entertained. If you’re looking for fine sandy beaches, head to Lakeside Beach and enjoy the delights on the marina.

When it comes to things to do in South Lake Tahoe, you can shred down the mountain from 10,067 ft. or you can dive into the depths of Lake Tahoe. It’s more than 1600 ft. deep, making it one of the deepest lakes in North America. Needless to say, there are plenty of things to do in Lake Tahoe above and below the surface.

Lace-up your hiking boots. Strap on those skis. Dance the night away at a nightclub. Be serenaded by an Italian singer on a Venetian gondola. Go back in time to see what the millionaires lived like at the turn of the century. Regardless of what time of year you visit, you’ll find something that reminds you “Carpe Diem” isn’t a state of mind but rather a place, and it’s called South Lake Tahoe.

Fun In The Sun

If you love the sun (and who doesn’t) then South Lake Tahoe should be on your bucket list to visit. On average, the region gets 300 days of sunshine a year which gives you A LOT of time to get outside and explore.

Peaks that reach as high as 10,000 feet and 72 miles of shoreline mean you can discover who you really are in Lake Tahoe.

Challenge yourself by climbing the highest peaks. Soak up the sun on the miles of sandy beaches. Scuba dive into crystal clear waters and see shipwrecks that are nearly a century old. Or just take it all in by seeing the natural splendor of sights like Emerald Bay. From a leisurely getaway to an adrenaline-fueled expedition, South Lake Tahoe has it all!

FALL in Love with Lake Tahoe

Around the Lake Tahoe basin, a peaceful stillness falls along with the leaves as Mother Nature takes a breath between summer and winter. Her paintbrush dips into vibrant shades of vermilion, gold, and orange, creating great swaths of colour along the Sierra as the supple aspens, grand cottonwoods and delicate willows respond to the temperature changes.  

Known as the shoulder season for Lake Tahoe however, plenty of people will still come to visit for various reasons revolving around fall fun and Halloween shenanigans, but with the change of seasons, it gets a bit calmer with fewer crowds and clutter.

Here are just three hiking trails we recommend, especially now the weather is getting cooler, making these hikes just that little bit easier:

  • Glen Alpine Falls Trail
  • Hiking Heavenly Mountain
  • Lam Watch Nature Trail

Winter Wonderland

If you like powder skiing and snowboarding, sipping craft beers and cocktails fireside, ice-skating and sledding with the kiddos, and all things snow, a Lake Tahoe winter trip is your ticket to paradise. So grab your gear and layer up because, with so many things to do in Lake Tahoe in winter, your upcoming getaway is going to be jam-packed.
