If you are planning a trip to Lake Tahoe and are looking for a Lake Tahoe vacation rental for the entire family, you are in luck. Not only do we have plenty of different vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe, but we have them located in close proximity to great family friendly activities. Regardless of season and age, we have something for everyone.
With the weather changing, so are the leaves. Plenty of our vacation rentals in Lake Tahoe are situated next to trails and forest lots, allowing you to enjoy the foliage from the living room or back deck. However, there is nothing like grabbing a hot chocolate or coffee from a local coffee shop and taking a nice cruise through Hope Valley. With all the changing colors in one gorgeous location, you will feel as though you stepped into a painting. Pull over and let the kids stretch their legs and the adults snap pictures.
Seeing as Lake Tahoe is a destination ski spot that people travel to each year from around the globe, this seems like an obvious choice. However, not everyone is up to strap themselves into a plank (or two) and head full speed down a cold mountain. Thankfully, vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe allow people to snowshoe right outside their back door as well as go sledding or inter-tubing.
A great year round activity for the entire group is heading to Markleeville to enjoy the hot springs. Whether you have spent all day on the slopes and want to unwind or you simply want to feel like you spent all day at the spa, the hot springs are a local favorite. The best part? They are located close to most of our Lake Tahoe vacation rentals.
Soar Above The Sky
Taking in the views from your South Lake Tahoe vacation rental is one thing, but taking a heli tour is another. Based out of the Lake Tahoe airport, these tours run year round so long as conditions are not stormy. The 360 degree view of the snow capped mountains surrounding the Jewel Of The Sierra is a breathtakingly memorable experience.
Make Some Magic
For year round live entertainment that is appropriate for the entire group, be sure to check out Magic Fusion at The Loft Theatre & Lounge. Eat dinner and enjoy the hysterical magic show. Locals tip: Kid’s get in free during the Sunday matinee with the purchase of an adult ticket.

Everyone knows that a little extra planning is necessary when to comes to traveling with children. After all, depending on the age they likely have favorite item that they can’t live without. Whether it is a stuffed animal, blanket, shirt or smart device if you leave it behind, you could incur a wrath that gets your Lake Tahoe vacation off to a rocky start.

- Make a packing list for each child
It seems as though the smallest human needs the most things. If you are traveling with an infant, you likely need a carseat, stroller, baby carrier, specific clothing appropriate for the time of year, bottles, teethers and SO much more. With the school aged children, they will probably want some type of distraction to keep them occupied during the travels. This could be coloring supplies, books, tablets, toys and ipods. Regardless of what you know they will need, be sure to make a list for each child you are traveling with and check things off as they get packed. This ensures you do not forget something you know they will need and it keeps you from having to rebuy something once you arrive at your Lake Tahoe vacation rental.
- Search for kid friendly activities ahead of time
Depending on the ages of the children you are traveling with, you may want to research local activities for children during the day. From events at the library to local parks, there a lot of free things to do that children love. If it is summer time, you may want to look into easy hikes or beaches with items to rent that will get the kids in the water safely. If it is winter, you may want to try snowmobiling, inner-tubing or skiing. By looking things up ahead of time, you will know what is available, when it is available, how much it will cost and what items you need to bring specifically for this activity.
