In addition to the obvious watersport options, The Landing offers these recommendations for experiencing the best of Tahoe this summer:

Go Fish. From serene fly fishing to chartered lake fishing, the trout of Tahoe will provide anglers a catch-worthy tale to take back home. Lake fishing is available year round and stream fishing from July 1 – Nov. 15, with the Truckee River available April 29 – Nov. 15.

C’mon Get Happy Hour. For a refreshing happy hour cocktail overlooking Lake Tahoe, stop by Jimmy’s Restaurant at the Landing Resort & Spa and try one of the signature Greek mojitos while drinking in the views of the lake and mountains from the lakeside patio. Happy Hour is 3:30 – 6:30 p.m. daily.

Hit the Links. Golf enthusiasts will be pleased to play through on greens frequented by celebs from Charles Barkley to Ray Romano at the Edgewood Golf Course, adjacent to The Landing Resort & Spa.

Play Cowboy.

Heavenly will open for sightseeing and limited hiking during Memorial Day weekend, from May 23-25. Then on June 12, the resort opens for summer fun with hiking, ropes course, and ziplines daily through Sept. 7.
