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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Fallen Leaf Lake and D.L. Bliss State Park. Change things up with a short trip to Hellman-Ehrman Mansion in Tahoe City (about 30 minutes away). On the 16th (Wed), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Heavenly Mountain Resort. And it doesn't end there: explore the activities along Emerald Bay State Park, play a few rounds at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course, steep yourself in history at Thunderbird Lodge Preservation Society, and relax in the rural setting at Tahoe Trout Farm.
