South Lake Tahoe

High in the Sierra Nevada mountains on the shore of one of America’s most scenic lakes, South Lake Tahoe captures the spirit of the outdoors and serves as a hub for tourism activities surrounding the lake.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like River Rafting & Tubing and Pope Beach. Explore South Lake Tahoe's surroundings by going to Nevada State Museum (in Carson City) and Sand Harbor (in Incline Village). There's lots more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Emerald Bay State Park, admire all the interesting features of Tahoe Trout Farm, and race across the water with a speed boat tour.

For more things to do, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, read our South Lake Tahoe trip planner .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 63°F, and evening lows to 35°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
