Whether it be an extreme sporting adventure, a family retreat or a serene solitary getaway, an all-in-one Lake Tahoe vacation has it all.
Lake Tahoe, nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains, is one of today’s finest vacation destinations around the United States and is located along the border between California and Nevada.
Tahoe’s depth is 1,645 feet and makes it America’s second deepest freshwater body and the largest alpine lake in North America.
Historically, the lake was formed around 2 million years ago and forms part of the Lake Tahoe basin, for which the lake has been shaped during the Ice Ages.
One of Lake Tahoe’s distinct features is the clarity of its water and the breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains.
The lake is one of the most popular tourist attractions, both from domestic and international tourists.
Lake Tahoe also plays host to a broad range of year-round activities and sporting adventures, including a significant number of ski resorts, a wide variety of tourist attractions and summer outdoor recreation resorts and facilities.
For nature lovers, Lake Tahoe boasts of its mountain and lake scenery attractions that remain unchanged throughout the year.
The Nevada side of Lake Tahoe also includes large casinos where highways provide year-round access from Reno, Carson City and Sacramento, California.
Approximately no less than two-thirds of the shoreline belongs to California and the south shore is dominated by the lake's largest city called South Lake Tahoe, California.
