Apres Ski Fun: Sculpture on the Beach


For those seeking creative family recreation options in North Lake Tahoe, Kings Beach is the place to go. A portion of the Kings Beach State Recreation Area has recently turned into a gigantic display of public art.  Pair this with amazing winter sunsets and it’s a great way to spend a Tahoe evening.  Where does this art come from? It comes from you and me and anyone who wants to contribute.  My 1 1/2 year old daughter helped my husband and I build our little mark on the beach.  Others spent hours perfecting their mark by carefully constructing rock towers and designs that exceed 5 feet in height.  What a fun experience to share with loved ones and to be proud of.

After building your sculpture or just admiring others, step back and enjoy the sights.  Bring a picnic dinner (and warm clothes) and enjoy the fresh air and breathtaking view of Lake Tahoe. If it’s getting late and the sun has gone down, there are plenty of great restaurants nearby to continue the night and reminisce about the day.
