Kings Beach Miniature Golf (Summer)

Kings Beach is a fun and interactive 18-hole old-school miniature golf course, located right across the street from the lake. Players get to choose their own color ball and dance around with music while they're playing.
880 Northwood Blvd., Incline Village, NV 89451
For just $10 for a day pass, kids under 10 years old can utilize the kids' climbing wall and burn off some energy. Fifteen bucks gets anyone older than 10 years old access to the big wall and the entire gym facility.
The Village at Northstar

In the busy months, the village is packed and a great place to people-watch. Find a spot in a cabana next to the ice/skate rink, roast some marshmallows and take in the sights.
