10.) Drive around the Lake - Anytime
Why not? The drive around Lake Tahoe is 72 scenic miles and will take a few hours depending upon stops. The drive could easily be a non-stop cruise to a full-day adventure.

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.
