California summer resorts

Lake Tahoe + Mammoth Lakes

Lake Tahoe summer vacation

If a crisp, turquoise lake surrounded by the Sierra Nevadas bursting with activities sounds like your kind of summer escape, Lake Tahoe should be next on your list. Whether you want to enjoy the lake via water skis, stand-up paddle board or boat or from a distance by ziplining on Heavenly Mountain or mountain biking at Northstar, you’ll find plenty of things to do in Lake Tahoe in summer.

Mammoth Lakes summer vacation

Epic adventures abound in the Mammoth Lakes area. There’s no shortage of high-alpine lakes, ponds and rivers to explore, as well as hiking and mountain biking trails. You’re also very close to Yosemite National Park, the John Muir and Ansel Adams wilderness areas, Red’s Meadow and Devil’s Postpile, all of which open up a whole other slew of summer mountain experiences.
