one day in lake tahoe

We are driving from Sacramento to Carson City this summer. We have 4 kids (ages 3-15) and are looking for something fun to do for an afternoon. I would prefer not to "take a drive around the lake" because that bores the kids. Would like to "get out and play" and show them the beauty of the area.

Any suggestions for a fun few hours?

Thanks.

There are so many beaches in the area that are great with a beautiful view of the lake.

Nevada Beach and Zephyr Cove have wonderful views. Also you might drive to the California Side and go to Camp Richardson area or over to the Taylor Creek Visitor Center with all the history and Baldwin Beach.

Just driving up to Lake Tahoe from Carson City when you first see the lake is absolutely breathtaking. You will love it.

Our favorite beach is at Sand Harbor, near Incline Village. It's so clear you can see the rocks in the water. There are facilities there for a comfortable day at this beautiful beach.
