Sightseeing in Truckee and Lake Tahoe
You’ll probably want to make the short drive to Lake Tahoe or the Squaw Valley Ski Resort, but rest assured Truckee has plenty for families as well, from their many fun museums to nearby national parks. Truckee also has an up-and-coming culinary scene, meaning you’ll never be far from family-friendly restaurants serving up delicious entrees!
Things to Do
Making lasting memories of your Truckee family vacation has never been easier with all the fun activities Truckee has to offer. To start, check out skating at Northstar any time of year. Ice skating in the winter or rollerblading/skating in the summer will create a special experience for skaters of all levels, especially if you head to Rubicon afterward for some hard-earned pizza. Another great option for kids is the KidZone Museum, offering indoor and outdoor science, art, and activities for everyone to enjoy.
An absolute must for any family on vacation is the Truckee Variety Co., the local’s favorite toy store that also offers an enticing variety of candy. It’s your one-stop shop for built-in entertainment, offering Legos, art supplies, and so much more. Also, what’s a family vacation to America’s small town without a visit to the local ice cream shop? Bud’s Ice Cream offers a 1950’s parlor-style experience with cold treats everyone can enjoy.
At any age, a body of water always makes for hours of entertainment. While the beaches of Lake Tahoe are perhaps the most obvious choice, there are plenty of other options. Donner Lake is a smaller alternative to its larger (more touristy) counterpart but offers fun swimming options for families looking for a quieter, more laid-back day on the lake. Another option is to take a 20-minute drive to Tahoe City and look for the pop-up tents along the Truckee River. Rent an inflatable raft or inner tubes for a leisurely day on the river. Don’t forget to pack some squirt guns and cold beverages to create a memorable day that will go down in history as one of the best family outings ever. If you’re looking to escape the outside weather, cold sleet or a burning hot sun can both be culprits to spoiling a day outside, check out the indoor community swimming pool at the Truckee Recreation Center. With water slides, a lazy river, a lap pool, and a diving board, the whole family is guaranteed to have a good time. (Pro Tip: Moms, maybe you can even read more than one sentence in your book as you take advantage of the contained space and lifeguard on duty?)
And of course, what’s a visit to Truckee without a visit to Tahoe’s premier ski slopes? Check out Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, Boreal Mountain Resort, and Homewood Mountain Resort for ski lessons catered to all levels of skiers.
