Family Vacations and Group Vacation Ideas in Tahoe City

Things to Do in Tahoe City

Tahoe City Ski trip

Whether you are visiting Tahoe City for a romantic getaway, taking a fun vacation with the kids or gathering for a group event, Tahoe City has something for everyone to enjoy.

Where to Stay on Lake Tahoe Vacations

If you are looking for more bang for your buck, Tahoe City vacation rentals are a great idea. There are several different types of vacation rentals that you can rent, including condos and private homes. Some are even located within apartment complexes or resorts. One of the great things about vacation rentals versus staying in a hotel is the amount of privacy that you get. You also get more amenities like private pools, Jacuzzis, WiFi, fully equipped kitchens, and multiple bedrooms.

Vacation rentals are a great idea if you are traveling with a large group or have children. When staying in a vacation rental, you have the option to cook at the rental home, which can save money. You will also have the option to rent a large house, so if you are traveling with a large group, you will be able to be together for your vacation.

Fun Activities for Families

If you are planning to travel to Tahoe City in the winter months then Granlibakken Ski Area is a great place to visit. This is the area's oldest ski resort and a perfect travel destination if you have small children. The Granlibakken Ski Area has both skiing and snow boarding terrains, as well as lessons for younger kids. If there are members of the family who do not ski or snowboard, there is a wonderful family sledding park.

If you are traveling during the summer, then you are probably looking for some water activities. Donner Lake is a three mile long lake with over seven miles of shoreline. This lake is a great place for families who have small children, because children can wade by the shore while parents watch from the sand.

Fun for Active Travelers

Tahoe City is a great place to visit if you are looking for an energy packed vacation with a lot of different activities. For daring people, try rafting whitewater with Tahoe Whitewater Tours. There are several different packages that you can try, depending on difficulty level. If you're looking for a different activity to try outdoors, consider cross country skiing at Lakeview Cross Country. The whole park is around 65 miles of groomed trails ranging from easy to difficult.

Another great option for spending some time in the sun is to check out Alpine Meadows Stables. This unique attraction offers guided horseback riding tours in the Tahoe National Forest. You can take a trail around bodies of water, resort communities, light houses, mountains, or ski areas. There are even pony rides for the kids!

Indoor Fun For The Whole Family

There are several places that you can go that are not only educational but are easy to navigate and fun for all ages. North Tahoe Historical Society and Gatekeepers Museum is a small museum that documents the history of Nevada's native people and the settlements in the 18th and 19th centuries. This is a great little museum to take the kids to.

Tahoe City has something for everyone to enjoy and staying in a vacation rental will give you and your family the option of doing all these great activities while staying somewhere more comfortable and homey than a hotel. So, no matter if you are traveling for a romantic getaway or traveling with the whole family, this wonderful city offers a variety of things to do year around.
