A Lake Tahoe boat rental is a perfect way to spend the day. There are so many great things to do while you are on a Lake Tahoe boat rental. While Lake Tahoe can get a little chilly at times, there are still many ways to enjoy all of the lake’s activities. Read on below for some of the most highly recommended ways to enjoy your Lake Tahoe boat rental.
Fishing in the Lake Tahoe Water Trail
The Tahoe Water Trail offers a public launch area, several landing sites, planned kayaking, paddleboarding routes, and plenty of fantastic waterfront scenery. It is more than 72 miles long, so you will be sure to find some attractive fishing spots along the way. For the perfect day trip, fish directly from your Lake Tahoe boat rental for rainbow trout, mackinaw, and Kokanee salmon.
Check Out the Taylor Creek Visitor Center
This visitor center is a perfect place to rest after a long day on the water. It has walking paths and a nature walk, which provides an excellent learning experience for children. Sometimes you might see beaver dams or ducks in the creek, and you might be lucky enough to glimpse some eagles or black bears.
Visit the Lower Eagle Falls
These falls are spectacular, with rushing waters coming from snowpacks from the high elevation peaks above, making the water cold. If you go after winter, the falls will be flowing at their peak, and you can enjoy the misted water flowing from the rocky area below the falls.
Use your Lake Tahoe boat rental to explore Zephyr Cove Beach and Resort. There is a comfortable lodge for you and all your friends to enjoy. Have a meal at the Zephyr Cove Restaurant and visit the M.S. Dixie paddle wheeler and the quaint general store.
Tour the nearby Vikingsholm Castle. Built in a fjord-like setting at Emerald Bay State Park, this is one of the best examples of Scandinavian architecture in the Western Hemisphere. The house is open for tours from April to September.
Sail your Lake Tahoe boat rental to Round Hill Pines Beach and dock at their marina. Visit Pope Beach, the longest beach in Tahoe, and anchor your Lake Tahoe boat rental early to enjoy the picnic tables and public restrooms. At lunch, several food trucks offer soft drinks, nachos, hot dogs, or hamburgers.
