Things to Do in Lake Tahoe in Summer

Sure, Lake Tahoe is a pretty sight in the winter, but you can stay warm and enjoy its picturesque outdoors with things to do in Lake Tahoe in the summer. Lake Tahoe summer activities let you take advantage of what its mountain and beach environments offer. Stay active by trying some water sports like SUPing, Jet skiing, parasailing, boating and rafting in South Lake Tahoe. Or if you prefer sports that keep you (mostly) dry, things to do in Lake Tahoe in the summer include hiking, running, biking and triathlons. And why miss the opportunity to get some of the best views in Lake Tahoe? Lake Tahoe summer activities, like bungee jumping or a hang-gliding excursion in Incline Village, let you experience a bird’s eye view of the area.

After all of that fun, wind down with some low-key activities. Familiarize yourself with Tahoe’s many towns by a bus or boat tour. Soak up the sunshine as you lounge on a sandy Kings Beach shoreline during the day, then watch the moon reflect off the Lake at night as you enjoy a movie or concert on the beach in Tahoe City. Night or day, Lake Tahoe things to do in the summer will keep you entertained.

Onshore Lake Tahoe Summer Activities

And of course, not every Lake Tahoe summer activity is related to the Lake. Explore arts and crafts centers in Truckee that feature the work of regional artists. Enjoy a relaxing game of golf, or get in touch with your spirit with the help of a yoga session in Squaw Valley. For the English, history or theater enthusiasts among you, a Shakespeare festival in Incline Village is a great way to celebrate the Bard and his work. With so much to enjoy, you can stay as active or inactive as you want with things to do in Lake Tahoe in the summer.
