Summertime, and the days are at their longest. Still, you’ll have trouble fitting everything in. Under the brilliant western sun, Lake Tahoe draws enthusiasts from around the world. Parks, marinas and recreation areas line its 72-mile perimeter, offering accommodation and near-perfect conditions for boaters, water skiers, swimmers and wakeboarders alike. Here the Mastercraft Pro Wakeboard Tour brings the best of the best, while the cloudless skies beckon hang gliders, parasailers, skydivers and hot air balloonists.
And with everyone in a festive mood, we offer one spectacular event after another. Reno and Lake Tahoe are centers for the arts, and summer welcomes the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival, Artown (month long arts festival), the Reno-Tahoe Blues Fest and the Lake Tahoe Music Festival. Indulge your taste for the good life at the Lake Tahoe Food and Wine Festival, or experience the unique thrills of the Great Reno Balloon Race and the world-famous Reno Rodeo. With only a 3-hour drive around the perimeter of Lake Tahoe, a must see is the beautiful Emerald Bay near South Lake.
And when the sun finally sets, the fun continues. From clubs and cabarets to theater and ballet, from elegant dining to high-energy casinos, the nights are as brilliant as the days.
