Explore Truckee's surroundings by going to Incline Village (Tahoe Meadows Trail, Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park, &more) and Eagle Rock Hiking Trail (in Homewood). Next up on the itinerary: whizz through the canopy at Tahoe Treetop Adventure Parks, admire all the interesting features of Truckee River Legacy Trail, see the world from above with HeliTahoe, and let the kids burn off some steam at Commons Beach Park.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Truckee planner.
