WATER RECREATION In case you didn’t know, there’s a lake up here. A big lake. We know—how unexpected. A beautiful, clear lake that you can splash around in to your heart’s content, along with plenty of other activities. Glassy and calm during mornings and evenings, Lake Tahoe is ideal for high-speed waterskiing and wakeboarding. Or rent a stand-up paddleboard and glide calmly across the surface. Paddling pros can take on the epic Lake Tahoe Water Trail, a 72-mile circumnavigation with 41 launching sites. For overnight stays, there are campgrounds and other lakeside lodging. Or take the opportunity to climb aboard a kayak, sailboat, or historic paddle wheeler for a sunset cruise. If that sounds utterly sleep-inducing, may we suggest

BIKING Mountain bikers are a special breed of crazy, and Tahoe South’s legendary trails draw these daredevils from far and wide. Some of them even live here permanently, so your knobby tires will be in good local company. From the heart-pounding downhill track of the Saxon Creek Trail (nickname: Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride) to the gorgeous Flume Trail, there are rides for every technical level. For the truly ambitious, you can link trails and ride seven summits in one day. Tahoe South has been designated as a Bike Friendly Community, so bike paths for the social spin are plentiful and so are shops staffed by experts that rent and sell high-quality bikes. The famed loop around Lake Tahoe is 72 miles of scenery: deep blue
Emerald Bay. The road also passes quaint waterfront lodging and plenty of eateries to fuel the journey. The best part about biking in South Lake Tahoe? Plunging your sweaty self into the lake after your ride. Easy beach access means you can go straight from the trails to the water. Trust us, you’ll need a rinse.

HIKING It’s good for the soul to wander outside the range of cell phone service—or at least act like you did. Tahoe South has plenty of opportunities for hiking or trail running up glacier-carved granite slopes, finding hidden waterfalls, and discovering alpine meadows painted with wildflowers. Your inner naturalist will be delighted. The South Lake Tahoe region is crossed with an extensive network of backcountry trails that is sure to lead you to your happy place, though runners looking for paved paths will not be disappointed. For the truly dedicated pavement-pounders, the Lake Tahoe Marathon happens each September. You could spend a week backpacking through Desolation Wilderness, or just go day-tripping with a picnic. Lake Tahoe has hiking trails for the hard-core and weekend warrior alike. You could even get your forest cowboy on, with lots of equestrian trails,
In winter, show cold who’s boss by strapping on some snowshoes, and you'll be rewarded with snowy solitude and breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe at its most serene. The best part of hiking or running uphill is knowing that the way down is way easier—and you’ve earned the right to celebrate with a big meal and a cocktail. Or three.

WATERFALLS What could be more spectacular than rushing blue water cascading 100 feet into a pool so clear you can see the rocks 40 feet below? That’s what you’ll find at Glen Alpine Falls–just above Fallen Leaf Lake. This is just one of the many spectacular falls in and around Tahoe South. The Visitor Centers have all the maps and detailed directions you’ll need to find your way to the waterfall of your choice.

South Lake Tahoe’s ski resorts have ski instruction for all levels, as well as kids’ camps. There’s even day care for little ones as young as two months. Whatever the season, Tahoe South is an unbeatable family destination with gazillions of activities.

GAMING & CASINOS Calling all high rollers and slot pullers, dice-kissers and poker faces. Home to world-class casinos that are refreshingly free of Vegas-style glitz, Tahoe South is the place to get your game on. You may feel slightly virtuous after spending the day in the great outdoors: time to undo that feeling. If ever there was a place to rally, Lake Tahoe South Shore is it. Our hotels and casinos attract big-name entertainment, so you can catch a headline show and follow the performance with an indulgent meal at one of our top-notch restaurants. Or bring your tired-out hiking legs into a luxury spa for a pampering massage, made even sweeter by the knowledge that you’re not sleeping in a tent. Yay for civilization! Tahoe South has the best of both worlds: natural scenery that borders on the ridiculously beautiful, coupled with nightlife that doesn’t quit. If you play your cards right, you can experience both sides of the coin in one day (see what we did there?). All bets are decidedly on.

Tahoe South is just getting started. From nightclubs with go-go dancers and bottle service to hipster dive bars with excellent jukeboxes, the night is always young at Lake Tahoe South Shore. We know, we know. You spent all day hiking or skiing or riding a bike down a trail. Dig deep. It’s time for your second (and third,

Tahoe South is a fan of the kinds of vacations that make you say, “I need a vacation from my vacation.” Tahoe South wants to see you in its casinos, its pubs, and its dance clubs, shaking your thang out on the floor, with a blissful smile on your face that says “sleep

What about these lesser-known winter activities? Human Sled Bowling (sculpt ‘pins’ out of snow, place at bottom of hill, ride sled into pins), Snowball Fight Flash Mob, or Snow Unicorn Contest (snowmen are played out, no?). You can even heed the call of the wild and go dogsledding. (Note: it is not recommended to hook your children up to a dogsled and shout “mush!” at them, even if it would be hilarious.) Remember: a flask is not a replacement for a parka. Bundle up!

to-technical rides, but none without incredible views. However you roll, Tahoe South has it hands down—or rather pedal down.

HISTORY & HERITAGE The mountain shores of South Tahoe are rich in history— Kit Carson to Pony Express to the opulent summer resorts of the glitterati 120 years back. Soak in the historic sites of the area, or sample art, music and theater it's inspired. "The greatest casino in America and marvel of the century" was how an awed newspaperman described E.J. "Lucky" Baldwin's Tallac House in the 1880s. The magnificent hotel and grounds had rooms for 300-plus, a giant ballroom and 100-foot barge that carried guests around the lake accompanied by a full orchestra. Tallac House is gone, but you can tour its grounds and view other magnificent estates of the era at Tallac Historic Site. Performances of the Valhalla Arts,

Music and Theater Festival are held here through summer in the estate's Grand Hall and Boathouse. Head a few miles up the road to stunningly beautiful Emerald Bay. Perched on top of its perfect island is a stone teahouse; a walk down to the lake's edge brings you to Vikingsholm, a castle-estate called, "the finest example of Scandinavian architecture in North America," open to visitors during summer months. Over the mountains in the Carson Valley is Genoa, Nevada's first established town. Tour the Mormon Station State Park and its museum, or belly up to the oldest continual-operated bar in the state.
