Located in the heart of America's most pristine woodlands, South Lake Tahoe is the ideal four-season vacation getaway. With hundreds of pet-friendly available on FlipKey.com, you should feel comfortable bringing your dog, cat, or other pet along for the trip. Though best known for its white powder and ski trails, South Lake Tahoe is home to the clearest mountain lakes for swimming and sailing, alongside nature paths for hiking and exploring.
The invigorating fresh air and abundance of streams to frolick in, this area is a perfect choice for a vacation with your pet. Let the pets swim in many of the lakes in the area, especially Echo Lake where the waters are calm and warm. You can also take a water taxi to a picnic area. At the Bijou Dog Park there is a place for skateboarding, a golf course, and many other activities. Walk along the historic homes or see a summer concert with your pet at the Tallac Historic Site. Ride the gondola with your pet at Northstar or Squaw Valley, if they’re OK with heights! Rent a boat and sail down the Truckee River with your pup or paddle a dog-friendly canoe. Hike in Van Sickle Park or swim off-leash at the popular Kiva Beach (bonus: free parking).
There are numerous art and music festivals throughout the year, so check beforehand to see if pets are allowed on site. Fallen Leaf Lake and Coon Street Beach are two other areas for outdoor frolicing. Treat your pup to a dessert at Scraps Dog Bakery, he deserves it! Grab breakfast at Rude Brothers Bagels where dogs are allowed.
Peace and quiet await you (or a long game of fetch, if you prefer) in the South Lake Tahoe dog friendly cabins on FlipKey.com. Plus you’ll enjoy major cost savings from leaving your four-legged friend with a kennel or relative. Consider a pet-friendly South Lake Tahoe vacation rental or house rental for your next trip, instead of a traditional hotel. With a cheap apartment rental you’ll find the privacy, space, and amenities of home, for a fraction of the cost of a hotel.
