There are so many places to ski I'm not sure where to start but they're all beautiful regions around the lake. There are runs made for everyone including young children with good schools at most resorts. Some places like Northstar and Alpine Meadows have valet parking and make it very easy . There are many strands around the lake from... More

It was snowing when we visited and so the beach was snow-covered and the lake almost frozen. Simply beautiful to see.

Such a peaceful place. the day we went it was chilly. Had just snowed a few days before, but not much snow was on the ground. There were not many tourists around, so got to walk around and really take in the beauty and peace of Lake Tahoe. The drive up was beautiful as well, and I think is part... More

If you appreciate nature and the beauty thereof, Lake Tahoe will blow your mind! Remember to pack your own food and drinks, as there a allot of picnic and hiking points that you can stop at. Beware of black bears as they can typically smell your food from miles away. This outing is spectacular and the swim in the lake... More

We have been living in silicon valley for three years and finally got a chance to visit Lake Tahoe. This is a place where you can find pure peace and joy. Lake changed color when the time changed. We walked on the beach for hours and it was the best trip ever.

We went to Lake Tahoe as a family trip. We parked against a high rock and crossed the street where the lake is located. You will need to do a little hike down in order to get to the lake. The lake is very clear. There was a huge rock with just a pink bikini bottom. Nice! Since we went... More

Our first but not last time to tahoe was an excellent choice for our getaway. There is really too much to see and do in a limited amount of time . Fall is a beautiful time of year up here and for any fellow east coasters who miss fall foliage come visit and you will be rewarded.

Beautiful place. I cannot recommend it enough. Go when it is snowing- go when it is warm. Any time of year is perfect. (If you get car-sick like me, pop a few Dramamine tabs before you drive here!) Bring your hiking boots and layers! Get out there and check out nature.
