5 Things to do at America's most beautiful lake this Memorial Day weekend:

Road Cycle Around Lake Tahoe

"America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride," the immensely popular summer road bike ride around Lake Tahoe, is already sold out. Cyclists can still circumnavigate the lake on their own, taking advantage of the spring shoulder season, which means less traffic in Lake Tahoe and perfect weather for a long road ride. Hop on your road bike and pedal one of the world's most scenic roads – a ride that provides an open-air, front-row seat to some of the nation's most stunning scenery. The 72-mile ride is perfect for high endurance riders and also for those wanting to take it slow. Recreational cyclists can stop at a variety of lakefront restaurants for lunch or lounge on one of North Tahoe's beaches along the way.

Paddleboard Through Crystal Clear Waters

North Lake Tahoe's clear waters are internationally famous and there is no better time than spring to experience Big Blue, which on average has a clarify of 70.1 feet. In spring and early summer, North Tahoe still retains much of the winter's stunning, gin-clear clarity and the warming weather makes it comfortable for a lengthy paddle. Novice paddle boarders can hug the shoreline while experienced paddlers can venture farther in to calm waters, all backed by snowcapped peaks, over shimmering, translucent waters.

Mountain Bike Dust-Free

Spring and early summer is the secret mountain bike season in North Tahoe. The trails are dust-free and grippy, and the meadows are lit up in iridescent green. While much of the Tahoe Rim Trail might still be under snow, low-elevation trails and south and west facing trails are primed for mountain biking. The world-class Flume Trail on North Tahoe's east shore is melted out, and trails around Truckee, like the Emigrant, are primed for early season riding.

Golf Under Snowcapped Peaks

Most of North Tahoe and Truckee's golf courses are open for business, and in immaculate shape after a very forgiving winter. Sunny skies and snowcapped peaks make a perfect backdrop for an early summer round of golf at North Lake Tahoe courses. Enjoy the thinner crowds and greener fairways before summer's high season ramps up.

Fly Fish the Truckee or Troll for Monster Macks in North Tahoe, Donner or Stampede

River, stream or lake – the North Tahoe region has an abundance of fishing options. Stream fishing season is now in effect; a day spent reeling in rainbows and browns on a tranquil section of the Truckee River is an unforgettable mountain experience. The Truckee River offers it all – slow water between Tahoe City and Alpine Meadows, and a wild trout fishery below Truckee that harbors large, wild Rainbows and Browns. Or fish for the big boys by trolling the waters of North Tahoe, Donner Lake and Stampede Reservoir for hungry Mackinaw that sometime reach up to 30 pounds.
