Incline Village Things To Do

Like every other town in the Lake Tahoe area, Incline Village things to do are the most abundant under the wide mountain sky. The area accesses two popular ski areas, Diamond Peak and Mt. Rose, both of which are known for being excellent options for families or groups with skiers of varying abilities. That said, Mt. Rose boasts the longest vertical in North America, so the almost-Olympic-level athlete can get their ski on too with this Incline Village activity. Other open-sky Incline Village things to do involve pedal power, whether that’s mountain biking, road cycling or cruising the lake on pedal boats. Or, you can just head to one of the beaches, spread a blanket and relax by the crystal clear lake water.

There are several Incline Village things to do that stand out for the fact that every Tahoe town doesn’t offer them. Two good golf courses are here, there’s a tennis center, a bowling alley, a skateboard park and a movie theater. But, the standout Incline Village activity would have to be the IVGID Recreation Center, a 37,000-square-foot center for everything healthy — fitness classes, basketball courts, lap swimming, racquetball, yoga and strength training. Add to that massage therapy, personal training and nutritional counseling and, for Pete’s sake, there’s just no reason to not go for your best self!

Incline Village Things To Do Are Famous

But, being the cool town that it is, Incline Village things to do also include a nationally respected Shakespeare Festival, a community-wide Independence Day celebration, a festival to honor Ullr, the Norse god of snow, tours of historic homes and more.

Then if we hop over to Crystal Bay, you can have a truly duel experience: Spend part of your day in the casinos tempting Lady Luck, then head on out to the bright beaches and boulders of Crystal Bay . . . two totally different worlds sharing the same space!
