Change things up with a short trip to Hellman-Ehrman Mansion in Tahoe City (about 32 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: view the masterpieces at Wyland Galleries, explore the historical opulence of Vikingsholm, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Theresa Catholic Church, and fly down the slopes at Adventure Mountain.
