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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Truckee (HeliTahoe, Historic Downtown Truckee, &more). There's still lots to do: get a tailor-made plan with Tahoe Photographic Tours, try your luck at Casino at Harrah's Lake Tahoe, admire the landmark architecture of Vikingsholm, and identify plant and animal life at Van Sickle Bi-State Park.

To find photos, more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the South Lake Tahoe trip itinerary planner.

Cleveland to South Lake Tahoe is an approximately 11-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Pacific Standard Time (PST), which is usually a -3 hour difference. Plan for cooler nights when traveling from Cleveland in September since evenings lows in South Lake Tahoe dip to 39°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Mon) so you can go by car to Olympic Valley.
