What's the attraction: Located in Ski Run Marina in South Lake Tahoe, the 312-passenger Tahoe Queen offers 2 1/2-hour scenic cruises. This authentic Mississippi paddlewheeler leaves the marina and travels to Emerald Bay and back.
What to do: The Tahoe Queen offers day cruises as well as sunset dinner cruises. The dinner cruise includes appetizers, a choice of a main entree and dessert. We took the day cruise and sat on the top deck to enjoy the gorgeous views of the lake, the fresh air and the spring sunshine.
