Travel Smart Lake Tahoe | The Best Apps to Enhance Your Vacation

Lime Bikes and Scooters

The breezy bike paths, wide sidewalks, and tree lined streets leading up to the lake are perfect for a scooter or bike ride, and South Lake Tahoe has both conveyances ready to rent from Lime. You’ll see the dockless scooters scattered around busy parts of town, to the chagrin of locals and delight of tourists. Download the Lime app, which will direct you to a vacant scooter or bike, scan the barcode and go. It’s a fun and futuristic way to get around, and perfect for vacation.
