If you looking for a different outdoor activity to add to your Tahoe vacation, a new activity is on the rise in the Lake Tahoe area — paddle boarding. If you are not familiar with paddle boarding, picture a surfer standing on a board, with no waves, using a single paddle to move along in the water. Paddle boarding is becoming quite popular on Lake Tahoe because of the crystal-clear, calm waters and weather; the ideal conditions for paddle boarding. So popular, in fact, that local boat rental companies are now renting them out to the public, and there has just been the 2nd annual Lake Tahoe Paddle Festival here on the South Shore this past weekend. It is a great activity the whole family can take part in and to do get out on the lake and do some sightseeing!
