  1. Visit the Beacon at Camp Rich – Camp Rich is packed with Activities, but there nothing quite like the vibes at the Beacon. Enjoy a sweet Rum Runner, delicious lunch and enjoy the sounds of the live music.
  2. Kick-Back at the Beach at Camp Rich – The beach here is perfect for the whole fam. You can relax and catch some sun, get in the water and rent many different water toys or get in some beach volleyball and other activities.
  3. Hike Bike, Walk, and Ride Camp Rich – Finally, you can take advantage of the less crowded trails at camp rich on your chosen method of transport. You can even visit the Camp Rich corral and take a guided trail ride.
  4. Water Ski in Emerald Bay – We know that lake Tahoe is cold! But nothing beats the beauty and calm of emerald bay. Head over around sunset for a killer view.
  5. Visit Zephyr Cove Beach – Head over to the Nevada side and take in the lively scenes at Zephyr cove. While crowds may be smaller this time of year, there is always some great entertainment!
  6. Take a Standup Paddle Board Class – From SUP Yoga to a beginners class, El Dorado beach has all your Stand Up Paddles needs covered.
  7. Bike Forest Path – This easy, pave 4 mile ride that parallels highway 89 is a quick ride. If you need to rent a bike, there are plenty of places scattered throughout all of South Lake Tahoe.
  8. Play Mini Golf at Heavenly Village – for a quick round of golf Heavenly Village has exactly what your inner kid is looking for. Hurry and get in your last few games before this mini golf course turns into an ice skating rink for the winter.
  9. Discover Historic sites – We have discovered a hidden gem in South Lake Tahoe: Tallac Historic Site. It has the Baldwin Museum, Vatican Lodge, Pope House tours, a children’s cooking program and living history programs.
  10. Drive around the lake – We may push this one a lot, but it’s one of our favorites. This time of year when the roads are less crowded HIghway 89 takes you on an adventure around the lake with breath-taking views the whole way.
