“Breathtaking”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

Absolutely breathtaking. The views are spectacular. Lake Tahoe is so much more than just a lake.It is just outside of town so it is easily accessible.

“One of the best way around Lake Tahoe”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

Amazing view of the Bay. We also did a hike starting nearby up to Granite Lake. The view on Emerald Bay was amazing.

“Out of the world View”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Where you can see the green water of Lake Tahoe meeting the blue. One of the most scenic view of Lake Tahoe on highway 89. Beautiful drive but do not be in a hurry. Lot of snow in winter shuts the road thru the area.

“What A View!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Beautiful view of the lake! We drove the whole way around the lake and I will never forget this stop! The lake is really far down, so you almost have a bird's eye view. A must see!

“Beautiful drive around the lake”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Really gorgeous lake views but wish we had the time to go down by the lake. And it was VERY windy when we were there.
