Lake Tahoe Area Guide

Lake Tahoe is California’s masterpiece. The basin of glistening waters and palatial mountains was formed out of calamitous volcanic activity and glacial works of art millions of years ago, giving rise to the astounding tourist attraction of today. Divided into North Lake Tahoe and South Lake Tahoe with equal parts gorgeous, Tahoe keeps locals and visitors occupied all year round. Ski resorts, warm-weather recreation, casinos, reputable nightlife venues, fantastic food, and perfect access to Reno, Carson City and Sacramento all make Lake Tahoe the ultimate vacation.
