It's no surprise that summer activities at Lake Tahoe revolve around the lake itself. With boats available for every kind of captain, get out on the water on a ski boat, jet-ski, paddle board, kayak or canoe. Relax at the beach, walk the shoreline, dive below the surface, or simply go for a dip in the cool, refreshing water. Where else can you find a sandy beach at 6,000 feet above sea level?
If you prefer dry land, then head inland for a whole other list of adventures. 75% of the lake's watershed is National Forest land, rich with trails. Hike to the top of one of the many peaks in the area for incredible views, take a stroll along the Truckee River or hop on a bike and set out on the memorable 165-mile Tahoe Rim Trail that circumnavigates the lake.
The Lake Tahoe region has plenty of other exciting activities including whitewater rafting, fantastic shopping, gambling, roller skating, outdoor dining and much more. In addition, there are plenty of outdoor concerts and festivals throughout the summer months.
