South Lake Tahoe

— 8 nights
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.
Attractions like Emerald Bay State Park and Boat Tours & Water Sports make great kid-friendly stops. Go for a jaunt from South Lake Tahoe to Carson City to see Spooner Lake Cross Country about 30 minutes away. The adventure continues: fly down the slopes at Heavenly Mountain Resort, stroll around Bijou Community Park - Disc Golf, get outside with Carson Pass, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Theresa Catholic Church.
