“Inspiration without Perspiration!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

You just pull off Hwy. 89 and get out of your car and walk up a few steps and see a remarkably beautiful view of Emerald Bay and Lake Tahoe. Do not not stop! The view is indeed inspirational.

“Pretty Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Views were great - but there are lots of people, even in the off season. The bathrooms were fairly primitive but nice to have. It was about a 30minute drive up from South Tahoe.

“Stunning vistas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Easily the most scenic spot in our quick visit around the lake. This is the number one rated item on Trip Advisor (as of the date we went) and I can most certainly see why.

“Memorable view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Billed as "Tahoe City", but it is 22 miles south and about a 40 minute drive, but well worth it. On a sunny day, it is just beautiful.

“Great to learn the history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Inspiration point has many information signs with a great deal of historical information about the area. Great for a different view of Emerald Bay.
