Lake Tahoe boasts the greatest concentration of ski resorts in the world. This winter wonderland also offers sleigh rides, snowmobile safaris and casino shows and action. Summer offerings include tennis, golfing, sailing, water skiing, parasailing, windsurfing, swimming, even whitewater rafting. Enjoy miles of cool forested trails while riding horseback to a western-style cookout, pedaling along the Tahoe Rim Trail, or hiking into Desolation Wilderness.
Head to the legendary Texas Hill Country, where bluebonnets flourish while whitetails and jackrabbits scamper. Bandera is cowpoke country, with exciting rodeos, boot scooting dance halls, horseback riding trails and golf courses. In the summer, it is rodeo time! Or take to the water with a tube or canoe on the Medina River or angling for bass on the nearby lakes and streams. Fall brings cool nights and the deep shades of crimson and gold to the hillsides.
