While competition and love of the game are what drives many American Century Championship players to return to the shores of Lake Tahoe year-after-year, the picture perfect spectacular backdrop of the snow-capped Sierra Nevada set against Edgewood Tahoe doesn’t hurt either.
Tahoe South is a mountain destination teaming with sun-up to sun-down adventure, A-list entertainment, theater and music festivals, winter skiing and a bounty of summer sports that makes the area one of the most action-packed destination in the U.S. It's no wonder the readers of USA Today ranked Tahoe as the Best Lake in America (2012).
|Everyone has fun in Tahoe South.|
Skiing and boating. Bike trails and blackjack. Ice skating and bar hopping. Whatever your passion, Tahoe South does it right. Here's what you'll find when you step out into the blue:
Biking: With dozens of off-road trails to explore and miles of paved bike path to explore, Tahoe South is a well-known mecca for cyclists of all stripes. Designated as a Bike Friendly Community, spins are plentiful and so are shops staffed by experts that rent and sell quality bikes. The famed loop around Lake Tahoe is 72 miles of scenery: deep blue water, Douglas Fir groves and breathtaking views of Emerald Bay.
Water Recreation: Whether it is a romantic sunset dinner cruise aboard a luxury yacht or sailboat, a zip around the lake in a speed boat or Jet Ski, a quiet ride in a kayak, canoe or on a standup paddle board, there are plenty of opportunities to create your own wakes along Tahoe South's cobalt blue water. Not predatory enough? Climb aboard a charter boat or head over to Cave Rock for some spectacular fishing opportunities. With visibility up to 75 feet below its surface, Lake Tahoe is home to more fish than you can shake a pole at.
Gaming and casinos: Tahoe South is a full-deck of high-rolling, dice-kissing, slot pulling adventure. Home to world-class casinos, Tahoe South is a sure bet to get your game on. You may feel slightly virtuous after spending the day in the great outdoors: time to undo that feeling. If ever there was a place to rally, the casino core of Stateline is the place.
Nightlife: When the sun goes down, Tahoe South is just warming up. From themed nightclub dance parties that celebrate the '70s and '80s to acoustic acts and jazz artist performances, sold-out amphitheater concerts, world-renowned DJs, top-notch comedians, and Grammy-winning musicians and groups, there's no shortage of entertainment options.
Golf: Mark Twain once quipped that "Golf is a good walk spoiled." Not so at South Shore. How could it?
There's a reason why American Century Championship players walk the magnificent 18 at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course. No matter where you turn, there are dramatic views of either the Sierra, the Lake or both. The South Shore area has six distinctive golf courses, each with their own vibe, views, dramatic landscape and all worthy of play.
Skiing and boarding: Sure, summer at Tahoe South sizzles with mountains of action, abundant water recreation opportunities and night-time entertainment, but the adventure doesn't end when the leaves fall off the trees. In fact, it fires up again around the time the snow starts to fall. Tahoe South offers World-class ski resorts and acres of backcountry trails, so you can glide down groomed slopes or take a cross-country tour of the winter woods.
