Things to do in North Lake Tahoe
Snowfall or sunshine, there’s plenty to enjoy along the shores of Lake Tahoe.
- Right on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe is Kings Beach, a community brimming with outdoor activities. Kings Beach State Recreation Area has over 700 feet of sandy beach for beachcombing, sand castle building, and just plain relaxing. Close to skiing and fishing as well, there's also casino gambling and entertainment nearby just across the Nevada state line at Crystal Bay.
- An outdoor lover's dream, Tahoe Vista is a small community just west of Kings Beach, joined by its charming neighbor, Carnelian Bay. Picture yourself in a lakefront cabin rental in either of these two postcard-perfect spots on Lake Tahoe.
- Come winter, Heavenly Mountain Resort, the state’s largest ski resort, holds its Heavenly Holidays celebration the whole month of December, featuring tree lighting, fireworks, live music, train rides, and more. Kids will love a ride on the Heavenly Ferris wheel, and adults can don their best Santa costume for the Santa Pub Crawl as part of Tahoe’s SantaCon.
- If you like a little more liveliness in your destination, lively Tahoe City is a vibrant, fun-filled playground right on the lake, with three great beaches: Tahoe City Commons, Tahoe State Recreation Area, and Lake Forest Beach. From here, you'll find plenty of things to do—enjoy a cruise around the lake, play golf at Tahoe City's historic course, raft the river, or in winter make the short drive to a number of ski resorts
Things to do in South Lake Tahoe
On the southern end of Lake Tahoe, the good times keep rolling.
- Just south of Homewood lies Tahoma, an area surrounded by natural scenic wonders. From your cabin rental in the woods, it's just a short distance to dog-friendly Bliss State Park, with its amazing mountain and lake views. Close by there's also Meeks Bay Resort and Marina, a popular place for water skiing, picnicking, and relaxing on the pristine sandy beach.
- South Lake Tahoe has just as many waterfront and mountain adventures. Take your time exploring by canoeing on the lake, golfing on a sunny afternoon, and hiking in a grove of pines—all with the backdrop of the majestic Sierra Nevadas.
- In town, you’ll find an array of restaurants, casinos, and nightlife. Sample your way through local breweries, join friends for a night of karaoke, or shop through The Shops at Heavenly Village.
- For family fun, challenge your kids to a game of mini-golf, sightsee by a sailboat tour on the water, or hike out to see waterfalls at Emerald Bay.
