  • Lake Tahoe Snowmobile Tour
    The Sierra Nevada is millions of years old and offers acres upon acres of unexplored beauty. The guides of Lake Tahoe Snowmobile Tours have only been in business since 1984, but they're doing their best to catch up. Every winter, they initiate newcomers into the area's austere beauty by leading adventures in and around the powdered landscapes of Lake Tahoe. On tours, groups of all ages wind through national forests on both groomed and fluffy powder trails, zooming through the mountains, across snowy meadows, and up to summits as high as 9,000 feet that overlook the lake. Along the ride, scheduled stops let riders explore the scenery, take photos, and leave their mark on the land forever by making a snow angel.

  • Kid's Zone
    KidZone Museum's slew of interactive exhibits, indoor jungle gym, and other playful attractions reverberate with the sounds of joviality, pique the curiosity of pint-size patrons, and encourage family bonding. Youngsters dive into an aquatic adventure in the Starfish Enterprise exhibit, which features an imagination playground, reef building, and a research submarine that grant aquatic education without Poseidon's dull office stories. Visitors skid down the slide or skirt the climbing wall of the indoor jungle gym, and mini adventure seekers explore the nature-themed baby zone. The nonprofit museum's creative center proffers washable paints, clay, and other art supplies for crafting miniature magnum opuses, as well as occasional classes on topics such as messy science and imaginary-friend value appraisal.

  • Grand Tahoe Charters
    Grand Tahoe Charters' small-group tours lead passengers on intimate sightseeing ventures with the jagged mountains peeking on in the distance and Lake Tahoe's calm blue waters as the setting. On each trip, the crew captains the 36-foot mahogany Wild Goose II, which harkens back to the early 20th century when wooden boats were the main vessels on the scenic lake. The ship carries up to 12 passengers at a time, assuring that tours don't become overcrowded or that a baseball game could break out. While sailing, deck seating puts guest in the breeze under the sun or stars, or inside in the heated cabin. With many available cruises, such as the West Shore Dinner Cruise and the Sunset Cocktail Cruise along the Incline shoreline, Grand Tahoe Charters aims to entertain guests while showing them the many facets of Tahoe's natural splendor.
