At Lake Tahoe Sitters we love the outdoors and always promote the education of our area, its resources, and our wildlife. So it’s no surprise that one of our favorite places is the Explore Tahoe: An Urban Trailhead Visitor Center. This free, interactive experience is perfect for people of all ages, but we find the kids especially enjoy the children’s discovery center and the 12 foot topographical relief map. The staff is wonderful and informative providing information on the lake’s clarity, geology, wildlife, and historic and recreational points of interest.
With a fantastic location in South Lake Tahoe’s Heavenly Village, it’s very short walk from the Marriott, Embassy Suites, Forrest Suites, any of the casinos’ hotels, and many others. Our sitters will continue to spark your children’s educational interest in Lake Tahoe with a walk or a short hike in the Van Sickle State Park to keep the interactive experience going.
The center is open daily from 9:00am to 5:00pm making it a perfect daytime activity for our sitters and your children to enjoy.
