South Lake Tahoe Anniversary Trip

Hi, we are taking a weeks vacation at the end of July to just get away for a early anniversary trip. We will be staying in Stateline. Since we have never been to this area of the country before we are hoping to learn about any must see things to do. We like a little bit of everything, scenic drives/walks, historical places, museums, shows, plays, wineries and are open to see anything. We have books on the area but its hard to know what the best places to go. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sheri

The drive around the lake is very beautiful. In Stateline, you have 4 major casino's right on the boarder. A little further up the road is a smaller, 5th casino called the Lakeside Inn. They have a good (and well priced) prime rib dinner.

Across the boarder into South Lake Tahoe (CA) is all the souvenir shops and restaurants. You can take the Heavenly gondola up for a nice view of the lake.

My wife and I stayed a few miles up the road at the Zephyr Cove resort. Zephyr Cove has many activities (open to not guests as well) such as horse back riding, water craft rentals, Lake cruises (paddle wheel, sail, or power boat), etc... . They also have a nice on-site restaurant and gift shop. The MS Dixie cruise is a nice relaxing way to spend a couple hours. Zephyr cove has a very large beach area as well. It gets crowded on the weekends, but is pretty quiet during the week.

There are also some great hiking trails in the area. Our favorite was the Eagle Lake hike that has a trail head near emerald bay. Be sure to bring bathing suits so you can take dip in Eagle Lake when you get there.

Other Tahoe experts can give you more ideas as well.
