Visit Lake Tahoe for the views, outdoor recreation and exciting nightlife


If you can’t decide whether you’d rather spend a vacation surrounded by stunning natural beauty or in an exciting city that features world-famous entertainers and non-stop nightlife -- why not opt for both? Lake Tahoe offers the best of both..


Visitors can spend all day reveling in the great outdoors and then all evening being dazzled by the nightlife.


Summers offer bicycling and hiking along numerous tree-lined paved paths or on rugged trails along mountain slopes through some of the most picturesque scenery on earth. Families will enjoy miniature golfing, horse-back riding, rafting, fishing, canoeing, fishing, paddle-boating, and playing in the water at Lake Tahoe’s beaches, while the grown-ups can play a few rounds of golf, get pampered at a spa, go skydiving, paragliding, ballooning or climbing, or simply work on their suntans on a sandy shore. And all that is during the “off” season.


During the winter months, the Tahoe area springs to life with hundreds of thousands of visitors for some of the world’s best skiing. Whether it’s on the downhill slopes or a cross-country trek through the back country, the area’s numerous ski resorts offer opportunities for every skill level. If skiing isn’t your thing, go for a dog-sled or horse-drawn sleigh ride, ice skate, ride a snowmobile, snowshoe through the woods or whiz down a hill on a sled or inner tube.


On days with inclement weather, museums, shopping and casinos offer plenty of indoor entertainment. Or, you could just relax with a good book in front of a cozy fireplace at a sky lodge or hotel, looking out at breathtaking views.


In the evenings, enjoy dining at one of the myriad restaurants to fit any taste or budget. Follow this with a show by a renowned entertainer, a night playing the slots at the casinos or perhaps a theater production during the summer Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival at Sand Harbor.


Despite plentiful all-day and all-night activities, there will come a time when you’ll need to sleep, and plenty of accommodations from opulent luxury hotels to quaint cabins and camping sites are available.
