Lake Tahoe Area
Lake Tahoe Area tourism thrives on the combination of outstanding alpine scenery and countless recreational opportunities. A drive around the 116 km (72 mi) shoreline reveals a beautiful landscape dominated by horned peaks and shimmering blue-green water. Adventurous spirits are driven to the area by prospects for wilderness backpacking explorations and all kinds of water sports. Providing easy access to hiking trails and camps as well as ski and snowboard resorts in the winter, South Lake Tahoe serves as the main stop for dining and shopping. In the summer, Kings Beach on the quieter north shore gets most attention. Wherever your Lake Tahoe trip may lead you, make sure to bring a camera for a poster-worthy shot of the area's natural wonders. Take a peek at our international travel planner: Lake Tahoe Area and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
