Lake Tahoe, California Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Lake Tahoe is one of California's most popular destinations for two main reasons: its lovely lucid lake and the equally beautiful mountains which flank it. The largest alpine lake in North America, Tahoe's cold clear waters collect the runoff from the more than 600 inches of snow that blankets the surrounding peaks each season—attracting skiers from around the world to try the slopes at one of several big name resorts (including Heavenly, Sierra, and Northstar).

In summer, the deep blue waters of the lake lure in a steady stream of outdoors enthusiasts. Boaters, anglers, cyclists, hot air balloonists and sun bathers flock to the 71 miles of shoreline here. The scenery is breathtaking, with some unique combination of landscape and climate producing astonishing colors and clear vistas - no lie, Lake Tahoe is one of those rare spots that is equally enchanting year-round.

Resorts, hotels, tour operators, and other visitor services are located all around the lake. The North Shore area is more spread out, with small towns and resorts dotting the shores, while the South Shore is home to casinos, hotels, and the mid-sized town of South Lake Tahoe. The other major community in the area is Carson City, a few miles across the border in Nevada.

Lake Tahoe is located in northern California about 100 miles east of Sacramento, straddling the Nevada border.
