- ByVisit Lake Tahoe SouthTop 7 Summer Activities in South Lake TahoeSummer vacationers in South Lake Tahoe face a dilemma: In a place where warm-weather pastimes include swimming, kayaking, hiking, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, and so much more—where the heck do you start? To help, we’ve rounded up the top don’t-miss things to do this summer in South Lake Tahoe. Rubicon Trail If you’re going to do one thing in South Lake Tahoe, it should probably be the Rubicon Trail. For most of the way, hikers are treated to pine forests, coves, waterfalls, beaches, and unreal views of the lake’s crystal-clear, blue-green water. Certain trail legs loop past Vikingsholm, a historic stone mansion, and Rubicon Point Light, a century-old wooden lighthouse. Vikingsholm It’s not every day you come across a stone castle inspired by ancient Nordic architecture in the California woods. Vikingsholm, a grand 1929 home built from granite boulders and local hand-hewn lumber at the edge of Emerald Bay, is a one-of-a-kind attraction that opens for tours in the summer. Cascade Falls Trail Tahoe is full of incredible hikes, but Cascade Falls Trail is a favorite for its relatively moderate terrain and gorgeous scenery. Located within Emerald Lake State Park, the short trail (about two miles round-trip) weaves through pines and up rock stairs before culminating at a waterfall with beautiful views of Lake Tahoe, Emerald Bay, and Cascade Lake. M.S. Dixie II Zephyr Cove Hop aboard the M.S. Dixie II, a grand old paddle-wheeler that looks straight out of a Mark Twain tale, for a leisurely two-hour lake cruise. From the deck you’ll see the stately Sierra Nevadas over the cobalt-blue water, as well as Vikingsholm and Fannette Island, the only island within Lake Tahoe. Daytime and dinner cruises are available. Meeks Bay Beach Beautiful Meeks Bay Beach is a slam dunk for water lovers—the rustic beach’s sand is clean and soft, and its sparkling clear shallows extend quite a ways, so beachgoers have lots of space to splash about. Facilities include a beachside cafe and shop for essentials, barbecue grills, picnic tables, bathrooms, and an air pump to inflate kayaks and water floats. Boathouse on the Pier While vacationing in Lake Tahoe, you likely want to spend every possible moment with the lake itself in sight. Lakeside eateries like Boathouse on the Pier let you stay fully immersed in Tahoe’s natural beauty while feasting on clam chowder, baked brie, and fish and chips. Carson Pass A pivotal point in the California Gold Rush, this High Sierra hiking trail winds through alpine scenery truly worthy of the term “breathtaking.” Reaching an elevation of 8,754 feet, the Carson Pass overlooks valleys, lakes, and, in spring and summer, fields blanketed with dazzling purple and yellow wildflowers.7 items
