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've now added The Gondola at Heavenly to your itinerary. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around South Lake Tahoe: Nevada State Museum (in Carson City), Bodie State Historic Park (in Bridgeport) and Reno (Truckee River Walk & National Automobile Museum). Next up on the itinerary: explore the historical opulence of Vikingsholm, hike along Mt. Tallac Trail, explore the different monuments and memorials at Genoa Cemetery, and get engrossed in the history at Gatekeeper's Museum.

To see other places to visit, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the South Lake Tahoe sightseeing planner.

Expect a daytime high around 64°F in October, and nighttime lows around 31°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
