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.
Explore South Lake Tahoe's surroundings by going to Eagle Rock Hiking Trail (in Homewood), Tahoe City (Tahoe Treetop Adventure Parks & Gatekeeper's Museum) and Reno (Truckee River Walk & National Automobile Museum). There's still lots to do: hit the best photo ops around with Tahoe Photographic Tours, hike along Rubicon Trail, indulge your senses at Wine Tours From Tahoe, and get engrossed in the history at Tallac Historic Site.

You can plan South Lake Tahoe trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

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.
