Summertime in Lake Tahoe

It’s time to say goodbye to the snowcapped Sierra Nevada Mountains, and greet the warm, sunny days that make Lake Tahoe one of our favorite summer destinations.

In addition to enjoying the natural beauty of the lake itself, there’s so much going on in the area during the summer that you’d be remiss not to visit. See the highlights of the summer lineup below and don’t hesitate to ask the Xplore Team to connect you with tickets or reservations before your stay.
