Emerald Bay – Things to do in Lake Tahoe

Emerald Bay is a beautiful bay on the southwest shore of the lake that was carved out of the granite by glaciers long ago. There, you will find Vikingsholm a Scandinavian style mansion that was built in the 1920’s. You can tour the mansion for a small fee. If you tote along your own snorkeling gear you can snorkel the underwater park and check out the sunken ships of Emerald Bay that were used during the building of Vikinsholm. This is a really fun day trip that offers a variety of activities all in one place for very little cost, we highly recommend it.
