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.
Escape the urban bustle at Heavenly Mountain Resort and Lake Tahoe. We've included these beaches for you: Pope Beach and Commons Beach Park. Step out of South Lake Tahoe to go to Truckee and see Northstar California, which is approximately 1h 05 min away. The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Emerald Bay State Park and examine the collection at Lake Tahoe Historical Society Museum.
