While it is difficult to narrow the list to just a few favorites, families should definitely consider the following activities when traveling to the area:

1. Action Water Sports
Water sports are the perfect way to enjoy Lake Tahoe. The area has hundreds of miles of pristine shoreline along its rivers and lakes, which means that families that enjoy spending time out on the water have multiple ways to have fun while on vacation. If they are less experienced, Action Water Sports provides lessons along with all the equipment needed to water ski, wake surf or wakeboard. All the safety equipment needed to go out on the water is included in the cost of lessons and the instructors at Action Water Sports are also certified captains in the US Coast Guard.

The MS Dixie II provides another way for families to enjoy the water.

For families that want to spend time on land, there is no better way to see the beauty of Tahoe's surroundings environs than on horseback.

Riding Lake Tahoe's trails is perfect for those who want to enjoy the local scenery at a more relaxed pace and with a four-legged companion. Non-riding family members will not be left out as guests may take lessons as well; they even have the option of splitting their sessions and taking a lesson and then riding the center's trail. If they want to go a little faster than is feasible on the trail, Sheridan Creek Equestrian Center has fields where they can gallop if they desire.

4. Truckee River Rafting and Whitewater Rafting
