It’s official! The long and epic winter has been melting away into a glorious summer at Lake Tahoe. North Lake Tahoe and Truckee offer a plethora of summer activities for visitors to enjoy.

Here are some of my favorites:

Water Sports: Lake Tahoe is known for its crystal-clear waters, making it ideal for various water sports. You can go swimming, paddleboarding, kayaking, jet skiing, or rent a boat for a day of sailing or fishing. If you want adventure, why not try parasailing?

Beaches: Spend a relaxing day on one of Lake Tahoe's beautiful beaches. Some popular choices include Kings Beach, Sand Harbor, and Commons Beach in Tahoe City. Enjoy sunbathing, picnicking, playing beach volleyball, or simply taking in the stunning scenery. Check out the Concert at the Beach free music series at Commons Beach.

Hiking and Biking: Lake Tahoe offers numerous trails that cater to all skill levels. Explore the scenic beauty of the area by hiking or biking along the Tahoe Rim Trail, Northstar California, or Tahoe XC Trails. You can also rent mountain bikes and enjoy the thrilling downhill trails. Check out the extensive back country mountain bike trails at Tahoe XC.

Golfing: Golf enthusiasts can enjoy a round of golf at one of the many golf courses surrounding Lake Tahoe. The Coyote Moon Golf Course, Old Brockway Golf Course, and Incline Village Championship Golf Course are popular choices. Check out Truckee’s Old Greenwood Golf Course.

River Rafting: The snowpack melt has the Truckee River Rafting company on hold until at least June. The Truckee River is a great place to cool off during the heat of the summer.
