things to do in lake tahoe


If you haven't noticed already, we're a little bit obsessed with finding things to do in Lake Tahoe.

But who could blame us? Tahoe makes it easy. It seems like every time we find something we love, it leads us to another. A camping weekend in Emerald Bay inspires a kayak trip along the West Shore. A mountain bike trail leads to a hidden creek that begs for fishing poles. Or a restaurant serves a cold beer from a must-visit local brewery.

Yep, it happens all year. Winter, summer, spring, fall—our list of things to do in Lake Tahoe only seems to grow. Not that we're complaining. We love that Lake Tahoe is a bottomless pit of trails and breweries, beaches and swimming holes, snow-covered mountains and aprés ski spots. In fact, we're freakin' stoked on it. That's why we're sharing it with you.

So whether you're coming from sunbathing on the boat or a blue bird day on the mountain, we're here to help you figure out exactly what to do; to eat; to hike; to climb; to fish; to swim; to float next.

Winter, you ol’ devil. To the untrained eye, you make the roads slippery, the air frigid and our socks wet. But we know better. We know that all it takes is a little preparation to love you the most....
