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.
Get some historical perspective at Tallac Historic Site and Genoa Cemetery. Kids will appreciate attractions like Sand Harbor and Baldwin Beach. There's more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Pope Beach and contemplate the waterfront views at Emerald Bay State Park.

To find more things to do, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read South Lake Tahoe trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 81°F in August, and nighttime lows around 44°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
