Need advise - south lake tahoe brief visit

Can anyone please suggest the absolute "must see" things in South lake Tahoe? I will stop there for about 7 hours i.e from noon to evening so dont have too much time and want to see just the most important attractions.

The must sees are the lake.

You could easily do lunch at the patio at Riva Grill (not a must but a place to eat if you need to eat with a view)

http://www.rivagrill.com/ This will take you about an hour

Go out on a lake cruise next door to the restaurant on Ms. Dixie for 3 hours so you see the lake, including Emerald Bay This will take you about 3 hours.

Leaving you about 2 to 3 hours to see the casino area and possibly other parts of the lake.

Or just go on an amazing hike or bike ride in the area - where there would be views of thelake.

The only thing that is a MUST do is SEE THE LAKE.

Have fun.

Yes the Lake. Are you driving? If so drive up to Emerald Bay.

There really aren't any must sees, but it all depends upon your style. Yes, the boat cruise is a great idea. The Tahoe Queen is the one that is near the Riva Grill, not the Dixie, but the boats are very similar. You might also consider taking the Heavenly Tram way up the mountain for some great views of the Lake.
