Summer in Lake Tahoe
Ride the Cable Car to the top of the mountain at Squaw Valley, where you can play at the Swimming Lagoon and Spa while enjoying the unmistakable views of the Sierra.

Or if you prefer, play a round of 18 holes. Or enjoy a different kind of golf. Disc golf is extremely popular in Lake Tahoe. At least four courses are available to play, including the original: Bijou Park. Want the best views of all? Experience a hot-air balloon ride, and reach out and touch the sky.
