High in the Sierra Nevada mountains on the shore of one of America’s most scenic lakes, South Lake Tahoe captures the spirit of the outdoors and serves as a hub for tourism activities surrounding the lake.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Lakeside Beach and Baldwin Beach. Change things up with a short trip to Hellman-Ehrman Mansion in Tahoe City (about 32 minutes away). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Kiva Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Rubicon Trail, trek along Fallen Leaf Lake Trail, and paddle through the water with Kayak Tahoe.
