Located in the Sierra Nevada on the California-Nevada border, Lake Tahoe is California’s ultimate year-round destination, with vacation rentals scattered around the lake, nestled amongst soaring evergreens and snowcapped peaks.
As the largest alpine lake in North America, and surrounded by national and state parks, wildlife reserves, recreation areas, and hundreds of kilometres of trails, Lake Tahoe is a nature lover’s paradise. Sunbathers flock to Tahoe’s lakeside beaches, while water sport enthusiasts take to the lake on boats, canoes, kayaks, jet-skis, and wake-boards. Hiking, mountain biking, fishing, horseback riding, and golf are other popular summertime activities, while skiing and snowboarding are favourites come winter at over a dozen local resorts. Thanks to a number of upscale dining and shopping options along the lake’s North Shore and the South Shore’s casino, there’s no shortage of places to retire to after a day out on the water, trails, or slopes. The rotating performances at the annual Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival provide entertainment in the summer to residents and visitors alike.
Lake Tahoe offers an array of natural, outdoors, and cultural attractions, as well as a variety of facilities and rental accommodation options, and is just a two hours’ drive east of Sacramento, or an hour’s drive southwest of Reno, Nevada.+ More
