Let’s review why a visit to Tahoe South promises to be memorable.
Yes, we have a lake, a very big lake. Okay, so one of the largest in North America. Okay, okay, one where the water is 99.994% pure and you can see down into that big blue more than 70 feet on any given day.. And after you do that, what else is there to do? Dangerous question, because the answer is a long list. We’ve got tons of ways to float your boat, from ski boat to kayak and paddlewheel boat to paddleboard. Not putting toes in the water? Consider the Heavenly Gondola which is your limo in the sky to the Epic Adventure, where you can challenge yourself on a number of ropes courses and zip lines, the biggest challenge being fitting all there is to do in one day. Take a breather with a milder day touring the Valhalla Historic Site or a short hike down to the Vikingsholm Castle for a feel of what 1920 was like on Lake Tahoe’s highbrow shores. Hop a horse at either Camp Richardson Corral or Zephyr Cove Resort and meander through the meadows with a guide who can spin a yarn or two about western life in yesteryear.
It may be getting close to sunset after all of these activities, so head to your hotel and spruce up for all of the nighttime excitement. Check the casino marquis for big name entertainment. After a showroom or outdoor amphitheatre rock star concert, and after that head to one of our glitzy nightclubs to dance the night away.
Whew! Take a break and take a drive. Perhaps to Genoa, the oldest town in Nevada, or Virginia City, built for the Comstock Lode silver mining boom. It’s okay if you can’t see the Lake for a day; it’ll be here when you get back in time for a lakefront dinner with a view of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
And in winter, while the sun goes down a bit earlier, Tahoe South doesn’t get sleepier. Try a bunch of these S’s on and see how they fit: Ski, snowboard, snowshoe, sled, sleigh ride, snowmobile. And to answer your question, yes, we still have entertainment, gaming, and nightclubs even in the winter.
Have kids, will travel? More stuff to do: arcades, hot air balloons, hikes, bikes, some souvenir shopping, miniature golf, ice skating, trampolines, climbing walls. We guarantee a good night’s sleep for everyone!
