You are here

There’s nothing quite like summer at Lake Tahoe. The lake is, of course, the main event, with its shimmering blue waters beckoning you to leave the shore and take a dip. While there is a lot to do on the lake — including boating, water skiing, wake surfing, paddleboarding and kayaking — there’s more to Lake Tahoe than water sports.

Hike through National Forests, climb on Donner Summit, take a serene yoga class, test your limits on a mountain bike, hit the links, learn to cast a line and catch your dinner. Or, just pop open your beach chair and lounge in the Sierra sunshine. Summer is what you make it here in Tahoe.
