Bright spring mornings create ideal conditions for sport fishing in the deep waters—Tahoe trout are a particular local delicacy. When temperatures reach their summer peak, there are plenty of ways to cool off, from gentle paddleboarding to thrilling speedboat rides.

The Heavenly Mountain Gondola, which operates all year round, climbs 2.4 miles and takes in panoramic views of the city, the lake, and the Carson Valley. Back on ground level, a visit to the Lake Tahoe Historical Society Museum will help you learn about the resort’s pioneering early years through displays of local artifacts and memorabilia—don’t miss the historic log cabin dating from the 1930s. Opening hours depend on the season, so check before you go.

    South Lake Tahoe—a year-round resort

    South Lake Tahoe’s highland climate swoops from chilly winters to sizzling summers. Snow typically falls from November to March and even into April on occasion, resulting in one of the longest winter-sports seasons in the southwest, and guaranteeing a wide choice of South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals equipped to cater for this thriving vacation sector. July and August are the hottest months, with temperatures regularly soaring into the high 80s, but the fresh mountain air keeps humidity in check. South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals by the lake are in high demand during the summer peak, so early booking is advisable.
