INCLINE VILLAGE – Celebrate the holidays with a sleigh ride along the shores of Lake Tahoe at Sand Harbor State Park. The handcrafted sleighs, drawn by mighty Belgian draft horses, accommodate four-to-six people and can be equipped with wheels to operate when there is no snow. Warm blankets and hot chocolate are provided, and caroling is encouraged. The park restaurant will be open weekends for holiday drinks and snacks, with special meal and sleigh-ride packages available.

Tours are operated by Borges Sleigh Rides. For more information and reservations visit or call (775) 588-2953.

The Nevada Division of State Parks plans, develops and maintains a system of parks and recreation areas for the use and enjoyment of more than 3.3 million visitors a year. The division was established in 1963 by the Nevada Legislature to form a new state park agency within the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The division manages and maintains 23 parks, historic sites and recreation areas in Nevada.
