Lake Tahoe is known for its winter wonderland full of snow sports like skiing and snowboarding, but the need for a break can come at any time, and you may just have the few days of the weekend to enjoy. Make your next weekend getaway to the shores of Lake Tahoe. Pack your sun, water gear, snow supplies, or whatever else you’ll need and point your compass to the cabins in North Lake Tahoe near the shores and the surrounding area. You’ll find plenty of fun activities to see and do that will keep you busy throughout your stay.
Lace up your hiking shoes and head out to explore. There are plenty of hiking trails leading to outdoor adventure. Choose an easy trail with little elevation change for kids and beginners or find something more advanced that takes you up the mountains to stunning views. Make sure to pack hiking necessities like sun protection, water, and trail snacks. You’ll also want to pack your camera to capture all the breathtaking scenery and moments of spotting wildlife in their natural habitat.
When the weather’s right and the waters of Lake Tahoe are a bit warmer for in-water fun, there are plenty of water sports to be enjoyed. Go for a leisurely swim, splash around, or change up your exercise routine. Add a mask and snorkel and check out who’s swimming below the surface. Get some thrills with your water sports and rent a jet ski or try something new like parasailing – head up into the sky from the deck of a specially-made USCG-approved boat for a ride you won’t forget or take the helm yourself and rent a boat yourself and enjoy activities like wakeboarding, tubing, or water skiing. Slow down a bit with near-shore water activities like stand up paddleboarding and kayaking. If you plan to take the helm of a power boat or jet ski yourself, check local ordinances to see if you’ll need a boating safety certificate first.
While others look for an adrenaline rush with their water sports, some like to take their time. Anglers will want to make sure to take the time to enjoy their favorite sport. Charter a fishing excursion or rent a boat and strike out on your own. You can look forward to hooking kokanee salmon, lake, rainbow, and brown trout, and others. Show off your catch for the camera, then take it back to your accommodations to grill up for a delicious lunch or dinner. Make sure to explore the feeder rivers and streams, too.
Lake Tahoe has been named a Bike Friendly Community. You’ll see why when you bike the many trails for every age and ability level. Start on paved paths so everyone sticks together or navigate the trails that cut through the beautiful mountain and forest scenery. Locals love the South Lake Tahoe Bike Path for the easy spin and seek out challenges like Corral Trail and Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride for an adrenaline rush.
While much of your plans likely include the lake itself, you won’t want to miss the scenery and breathtaking views all around it. Pile everyone in the car and take a drive around the lake. The two-hour drive takes you past must-see sights of the area, including Zephyr Cove, Sand Harbor Beach, Incline Village, Cave Rock Trail Head, Emerald Bay State Park, and Camp Richardson. You can get out and stretch your legs and explore, making the journey last much more than a couple hours in the car.
Fly high above the waters of Lake Tahoe and surrounding mountains. Several companies that offer helicopter tours that give you a bird’s eye view of the area. Some offer specific trips, like Emerald Bay, area lakes and waterfalls, Zephyr Cove, or a circle of the entire lake. Make sure to bring your camera to capture breathtaking views or mountain vistas and the water below.
