The 13 best things to do in South Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is Northern California’s year-round adventure destination and South Lake Tahoe is its capital. South Lake is the most built up stretch of the shore and owes much of its success to the nearby Nevada-California stateline just across which several world class casinos, including the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, have been operating for decades. But South Lake is about much more than gambling. Nestled against the southern rim of Lake Tahoe, this town is an equally convenient jumping off point for summer fun like kayaking, water skiing and mountain biking and winter activities like cross-country skiing, tubing and snowmobiling.  Done something on this list and loved it?
