My wife and I came here for our honeymoon in 2004 and have been back many times since. Not just for sentimental reasons - it really is one of the most beautiful places in America. We would come more often but we live 5,400 miles away and want to spread our trips across the pond to other parts of the... More

Be sure to see this lake in any season: popular ski area in winter, but lake partially freezes over. Parking is scarce. Restaurants and hotels are extremely expensive in winter. The narrow 2 lane highway around the lake takes about an hour and a half, slower in bad weather or when bicyclists are present (which they always are). Some great... More

Lake Tahoe is probably among the best in the nation to visit or live. The Nevada State Park has Sand Harbor for wonderful venues (including the Shakespeare and Broadway festivals) a great beach at Sand Harbor and also secluded beaches needing a hike down.....but more than worth the hike. "Your vacation is my home". Come and visit.

We had planned to stop in at Lake Tahoe State Park beach for a quick visit and picnic lunch. I am being upfront about the fact that we did not actually visit the park, we attempted to do so and there were a few things I wish I could have found out while researching this trip, so I will share...

See my review of Sand Harbor. This is a beautiful state park with lots to do. One of the best attractions in the area. Get there early, though. It cost $12 a car to get in.

Picnicked here while staying in Sparks, NV. About a hour drive from Reno. Some of the most beautiful lake and forest scenery you will ever see. Picnicking with the Tamil here is a no brainer.

Great place to visit in the area. Lots of things to do and the lake is very pretty. Can kill a day and it is not expensive at all.

The trip up in the gondolas $50 per person is well worth a family entire day. The views on the way up and park way at the top was amazing. There is enough to do to stay all day

A group of us were attending a conference in Reno and decided to rent a car and take a couple hours for ourselves to check out Lake Tahoe. It took us about an hour to get there and the scenic drive did not disappoint. We then found a free public beach called Hidden Beach that was quiet and had stunning... More
