10.) Drive around the Lake - Anytime

Bonus Activity - Sled at Granlibakken
Located just outside Tahoe City past Fanny Bridge going south on Highway 89, Granlibakken is one of Tahoe's best kept secrets. This is not a big time, touristy sled hill, it's a cool hill that kids will love and parents will get a kick out of -- especially after they re-learn how to navigate a saucer.
