Top 10 Things to do in Incline Village, United States

September 14, 2017 Hector Krause

Nestled along the northern shores of Lake Tahoe, Incline Village is a paradise for adventurers, offering exhilarating activities the whole year through. The surrounding Sierra Nevada thrives in winter, drawing flocks of snow-lovers to Diamond Peak’s groomed runs and glade skiing. The same peaks provide secluded and challenging hikes in the summer months. Tahoe itself is the place to unwind. Although some beaches are open only to residents, there are numerous public beaches to dip your feet in.

Sand Harbor

Rocky coves and boulders to jump off of are the primary features of this beach.

Reviewed By lokeyh - San Jose, California

The view along the broadwalk is amazing. The walk along the broadwalk is easy and suitable for family with young children. There is also sleigh ride available near the visitor center which you can take. It cost $25 per adult and $10 per child for a 30-minute ride.

Stateline Fire Lookout

This much-overlooked point provides one of the best views of Lake Tahoe.

Reviewed By GlobalVillage - Burlington, Vermont

Stateline Fire Lookout may have the best view of Lake Tahoe. It is a relatively easy walk up, has gorgeous views, has free parking, is kid and dog friendly (there are even doggy doodie bags at the entrance), has informative displays and a bathroom at the summit. We lounged around at the summit, read the displays, enjoyed the views, and had a picnic. On this mid-week, bright and sunny November day, we saw a few kids and lots of happy dogs with their human companions!

Kings Beach State Recreation Area

Reviewed By Bigredmachine

Unlike the beaches along the Pacific coastline from Southern California to Washington State where the general public has a right to full access of it, most of Lake Tahoe's beaches and shoreline are private and the public cannot legally access it; that is why you are so many no trespassing signs along the lake. This is what makes Kings Beach and the other state beaches so important. Kings Beach State Recreation center is located just across the California/Nevada border. There is a fairly large parking lot, right along the beach and parking is about $5 per car. In addition to the beach and Beach activities, there are barbecue and picnic areas available on a first come, first served basis. The beach is also adjacent to shops, restaurants of the town of Kings Beach.

The lake is beautiful, but the tour was such a disappointment, and a bit of a rip off. We started over a half an hour late. There were too many people together (14) which meant everything took too long, we spent a lot of time waiting, and the group spread out so that there was little interaction with the "guides". I use quotes because the guides while nice enough, added no value - they provided little information and couldn't answer the most obvious questions (are the fish natural or stocked, how much do the waterfront homes go for).

We had been warned beforehand that lunch was changed to snacks (web site has since been updated), but the snacks were pitiful (other than some nice fresh fruit) - cheap packaged cookies, granola bars and trail mix. Drinks were odd cans of off brand sodas - not a simple coke or sprite to be had.

The general consensus between several of the participants was that it was terribly boring. We ended up back at the starting point 3.5 hours after we hit the water and we're given the choice to end the tour or keep going to complete the original 4.5 hour tour. Only a couple people elected to keep going - everyone else decided it was better to call it quits - that should tell you just how good the tour was.

Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park

A number of areas for visitors along Lake Tahoe, with the most popular being Sand Harbor.

Reviewed By Cavydad - Camarillo, California

Lake Tahoe is the bluest of blues. Try your feet in the water. Arctic ice, or so it seems. Even in the summer it is cold. I watch people doing water sports and I always wonder how and why. Perhaps in a boat. But waterskiing.

Great wonderful state park and lake.

Kings Beach Miniature Golf

Reviewed By Matt S - Humble, Texas

This okace was great. We stopped in on the last day of our visit and didnt expect it to be much, but it was far and away the best mini golf places we have been to.
The cost was $7 (maybe $7.50 i dont remember) but there were a ton of great holes.

Our favorite was the giant slot machine that spun after you entered your shot.....giving you a hole in one or some other change to your score. If you could only do one course - do the one closest to the street.

Crystal Bay Club Casino

Reviewed By Wyndwhystle - Gardnerville, NV

We are long time Northern Nevada residents and not interested in gambling, but the Crystal Bay Club offers regular concerts in the Crown Room by interesting musical artists. We saw Elephant Revival who had just played in Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco, so we feel fortunate to be able to hear music like this in our corner of the world. The Crown Room is standing room only as they removed some side booths that used to be available for an extra fee to cram more people in. Sitting in a booth would have been more comfortable for these fans in their 60's, but the sound was good and the show worth the modest ticket price.
If you are put off by crowds and inhaling second hand weed at levels that reminded me of Winterland in the 1970's this might not be the place for you.

Diamond Peak Ski Resort

Diamond Peak has incredible views of Lake Tahoe, family-friendly terrain, and wide, easy slopes. You'll fall in love with our uncrowded mountain, money-saving family packages, and the Diamond Peak Child Ski Center.

Reviewed By marklephotos - Incline Village, Nevada, United States

If you appreciate affordable rates, shorter lines, relatively easy parking, a great family atmosphere and fantastic views of Lake Tahoe, Diamond Peak is the place to ski or snowboard. Years ago I took ski lessons at other resorts, but I REALLY learned to ski at Diamond Peak!

Tahoe Meadows Whole Access Interpretive Trail

This 165-mile, twenty-four inch, single-track trail is open to hiking, equestrians, and mountain biking (in most areas). The trail encompasses the ridge tops of the Lake Tahoe Basin, crossing six counties, and two states. The Tahoe Rim Trail overlaps with approximately fifty miles of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail.

Reviewed By simon s - Felton, California

We walked this a couple of days after a snowfall. Just enough snow left to give it a bit of a winter feel. Nicely done short trail. Path is excellent shape and mostly very level. Only 1.2 miles long. Nice places to stop all along the way. Adequate parking and has a restroom on grounds. Main drawback is that the sign is a bit off the road and hard to see. If we werent with someone that knew the location, we probably would have a hard time finding.

Thunderbird Lodge

Reviewed By artess1 - Tiburon

Started in 1936, during the Great Depression,"Castle In the Sky" used local labor & incredible artisans, and at one time encompassed 40,000 acres & 20 miles of Tahoe's shoreline. Over the decades, the history of Thunderbird Lodge played an integral part in the development of the current East & North areas of Lake Tahoe. Visitors share an intimate look at Geo. Whitell's life of luxury from a "bygone era" filled with his interests in architecture, a private Zoo, mystery of underground tunnels, gaming w/celebrities and enjoyment of water sports on the Lake (Thunderbird Yacht).
Open May - October, RSVPs & walking shoes (many stairs) are a must and water bottle helpful. Sadly, don't recommend the tour for young children.
