The fresh air will make you wanna stay there forever. Don't miss the sun rise and sun set by the lake. There are lot of things one can do here... More

We were staying in Reno and took a drive to Lake Tahoe. Had a delicious breakfast in this quaint little restaurant then explored around the Lake. It is such a gorgeous place with the lake and the snow capped mountains in the distance. It would be a lovely place to spend a couple of days relaxing.

Awesome to drive around the Lake. Takes all day but is worth the time! Great views everywhere. Good restaurants, good shopping, friendly folks. Have visited for several years and never tire of it.

The prestine beauty of Tahoe is a sight to see. One of my favorite trips ever, full of breath taking sights of mountains and lakes. Take your love, your family, your friends....but GO! You will not soon forget and never regret this wonderous place.

We went from Las Vegas and took seven amazing hours through the road to reach South Lake. It is amazing the city and the cold was not as expect. We were fine and even ski without so many jackets. Do not go during weekends. We were at friday and it was amazing.

Snowshoe John was the best tour bus driver. He was very gracious and extremely helpful. He recently drove my club around for 3 days and our shuttle was always on time and so pleasant. The bus was very comfortable for our trips to and from the ski resorts.
