Make every day a play day!
With summer in full swing in Truckee and Lake Tahoe, it’s not surprising to see our neighbors out and about doing things that we may not expect they’d be doing! Yet here in the land of adventure, every day can truly be a journey to remember; it just depends on how much fun you want to pack into your day or night.
From wakeboarding, to parasailing and glider flights over the Lake, to extreme dirt and mountain biking and rock climbing throughout the High Sierra, every day can be a play day right here in our backyard.
Truckee and Lake Tahoe is a playground of all playgrounds that welcomes all ages and abilities. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or want to take up a new sport, the list of opportunities seems endless.
To help you get started on a summer of a lifetime, we’ve done some research for you. And if you want some real local insight about things to do that are a little more adventurous than rafting down the Truckee (although that’s always a must-do at some point each summer), just contact the Elder Group Tahoe team at any time!
Have fun, be safe, and we’ll see you out there in our land of adventure!

Jump Out of a Perfectly Good Aircraft
This may make it to our ‘Bucket List’ after reading all about Sky Dive Truckee Tahoe. Not to mention the sights that you will see when you and your guide jump out over the Lake or Sierra to experience an extreme adventure of a lifetime.
Their website explains it best:
“Skydiving is an experience, you just cannot compare to anything else. You can’t say it’s like “this” or like “that”, like a roller coaster or like flying. It’s just something so unique unto itself, you must try it to know what we are talking about. Skydivers have a saying “we know why the birds sing…”
Check it all out at SkyDiveTruckeeTahoe.com. And, if you do take the big leap, stop in our real estate office in Truckee and share your personal stories with us! We may put this on our “Bucket List” yet!
