South Lake Tahoe

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.
When in South Lake Tahoe, make a side trip to see Northstar California in Truckee, approximately Truckee away. There's much more to do: stroll through Heavenly Mountain Resort, indulge your senses at Wine Tours From Tahoe, and kick back and relax at Lakeside Beach.

To find other places to visit, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, go to the South Lake Tahoe trip planning site.

Lake of the Sky
Straddling the border between California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe draws visitors from both states and beyond to its shores. With an average of 300 sunny days annually, it's no surprise that the lake is a favorite among outdoor enthusiasts. The blue-green waters beckon travelers for swimming, boating, windsurfing, or kayaking. The lake also has a number of walking trails for those who don't want to get wet. In the colder months, skiers take to the surrounding mountains. The south shore is the most developed side of the lake, with more things to do, while the west and north shores are generally more tranquil.
