We are coming to Reno for a Conference right after Labor Day so the 1st week in September. I am planning on spending either one full day or one afternoon exploring Lake Tahoe.
We aren't outdoorsmen by any means, but we would like to get a little taste of Lake Tahoe while we are so close. I was thinking of stopping in at Sand Harbor Beach, then heading west, possibly Kings Beach, then on to Tahoe City and Truckee River Outlet Gate Keepers Museum, from there head to Emerald Bay where we will tale Vikingsholm trailhead and tour the castle and hike up to Eagles Falls after, then on to Heavenly Village for the gondola ride and either finish out the day with the Dinner Cruise in Zephyr Cover on the MS Dixie II or dinner in Incline Village at the Bistro.
Is 1/2 day sufficient or do we need to dedicate a full day?
woudl it be better to explore on our own or should we go on a guided tour? Did I leave out any must dos or have I included something that I shouldn't have? Any feedback would be very appreciated!
