With August half way over and school about to begin, you may be looking at vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe for one last getaway before the fall festivities begin. So what to do when you only have time for a quick trip? Here are our favorite ways to soak up the last remaining sunrays of summer.
Find the wildflowers
Lake Tahoe is surrounded by gorgeous wild flowers, which not only make for a beautiful site to take in, but also for some amazing photography by which you can remember your trip. Better yet, try and catch the view when the sun is rising or setting. The perfect reward after a long hike or mountain bike trip.

Go chasing waterfalls
Thanks to a high snow pack, the waterfalls are still gushing which means you can cool off after you have reached your destination. Of course, safety is key here as the waters are raging, strong and can injure you if you are not careful. If you have young ones in your group, consider an easy, short hike and a smaller waterfall that is moving slower.

Go for a float
This is a super fun, yet lazy day activity that allows you to enjoy the sun and the mountain views with all your favorite people. The great thing about the Upper Truckee River is you can access it quickly from wherever your vacation rental in South Lake Tahoe is. End your trip at The Hangar for a flight of beer, cider or kombucha. Need helmets or water vests? Stop by one of the fire stations and borrow one from their inventory.
Summer in South Lake Tahoe is great because a simple trip to the beach isn’t so simple. You can rent kayaks, paddle boards, listen to live music on the beach and get in on a game of volleyball. Of course, every beach offers different amenities. If you want a simple afternoon with views, consider Baldwin or Kiva. If you want a variety of activities and rentals, go to Camp Richardson, Zephyr Cove or Round Hill Pines. The good news is, no matter where your South Lake Tahoe vacation rental is located, you have options within minutes of your front door. If it is close enough, consider biking as parking can be an issue on a busy summer day.
