This year has been a little different than we all expected, one thing that helped was planning for a summer getaway. Now that things are opening up and we are able to travel again, it’s time to book your North Lake Tahoe vacation home and plan your summer getaway. Get ready for your trip by planning ahead and exploring this guide of Lake Tahoe summer activities available to you in the Tahoe region!
The Pacific Crest Trail is the world’s longest hiking trail, stretching out over 2600 miles and visiting three different countries and three different states! North Lake Tahoe’s section stretches about 15 miles and goes from Donner Pass to Squaw Valley, making it the perfect summer activity for hikers of all skill levels!
Ziplining at Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park
Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park may not be the only way to get a great view of the valley, but it’s definitely the most fun, offering aerial adventures that include 27 zip lines, 60 bridges, and 10 different obstacle courses! Located at 725 Granlibakken Road in Tahoe City, climbing trees has never been this exciting, and as long as your children are over 5 years of age and can follow simple directions, they (and you!) will be able to have the time of their lives! Safety gear is included.
Boating on the Lake
The lake provides the best entertainment in town, and on a warm summer’s day, you’ll enjoy the coolness Lake Tahoe offers. Rent a boat from Premier Boat Rental in Tahoe Vista, and spend some hours waterskiing, tubing, or just zipping across the waters feeling the sun beat down on your shoulders as you explore all that Lake Tahoe has to offer. Fishing is a popular lake activity as well, one that can be done from the water or from the shore, and if you don’t have your own equipment, most sporting equipment stores across the region will over rentals, ensuring you have everything you need to catch more than your share of rainbow trout!
Explore the Nightlife
Next to shopping and playing, exploring the nightlife of our vacation destinations is one of our most favorite summer activities, and North Lake Tahoe offers its share of fun ways to spend the darker hours of your getaway! Fat Cat Bar & Grill in Tahoe City is proud of its locally sourced meals, live music, and its refreshing beverage menu, while Jason’s Beachside Grille in Kings Beach features all of the same plus amazing views of the lake! For those who prefer old school and personable to modern and sterile, Pete n’ Peter’s pub in Tahoe City will be their new favorite drinking hole. Spend a night with your new Tahoe friends playing pool, darts, or shuffleboard as you sip your favorite beverage from the bar!
