TahoesBest.com Announces How to Keep the Kids Active in Lake Tahoe

Jul 23, 2013

Summer vacation is well underway, and this means children are starting to get antsy. Don’t let the kids start with those mom-this-is-boring stares and complaints! While vacationing in Lake Tahoe, kids can stay entertained by all of the outdoor Lake Tahoe activities. TahoesBest.com suggests riding horseback at the Zephyr Cove Stables, zooming down the river on a Tributary Whitewater Rafting trip, or trying their best to stand up at Birkholm’s Water Ski School. Don’t let them just sit around all day, get them out and adventuring in Lake Tahoe.

Gallop Through the Mountains

A child doesn’t have to be a horse fanatic to appreciate the excitement of a day on the trails. With Zephyr Cove Horseback riding kids ages seven and older can experience the joys of trotting through the pristine nature of Lake Tahoe. Rides go from 1-2 hours and are led by one of the friendly Zephyr Cove guides.

The option of a breakfast, lunch or dinner ride is also available and combine the excitement of horseback riding with the fun of picnicking in the mountains. Young cowboys and cowgirls will be talking about this adventure in South Lake Tahoe for the rest of the summer.

Rush Down the River

Whitewater rafting is one of those Lake Tahoe activities that will be ever-popular among the kids. Yells of joy can be heard during the summer seasons, and Tributary Whitewater Tours is to blame for the noise. Kids and adults alike enjoy the thrill of rushing down the class 2-3 whitewater rapids.

The last mile of the trip is reserved for the brave souls who dare to venture into class 3+ rapids. Rafters who don’t feel comfortable with the more intense rapids can disembark before, but most daredevils who decide to give it a go end up loving it.

Zip Around the Lake

Wakeboarding, water skiing and tubing, oh my! Birkholm’s Water Ski School in South Lake Tahoe provides families with out-of-this-world lessons in a variety of different water sports. The great thing about Birkholm’s water ski school is their rates are on a per hour, not per person, basis. Bring the kids and watch as they soar through the air on a tube, or try to stand on a wakeboard. And hey, maybe by the end of the vacation kids will be catching some major air!
