Lake Tahoe Feature


Top Reasons to Go to Lake Tahoe

The lake: Blue, deep, and alpine pure, Lake Tahoe is far and away the main reason to visit this high Sierra paradise.

Snow, snow, snow: Daring black-diamond runs or baby-bunny bumps—whether you're an expert, a beginner, or somewhere in between, there are many slopes to suit your skills at the numerous Tahoe-area ski parks.

The great outdoors: A ring of national forests and recreation areas, linked by miles of trails make Tahoe a nature-lover's paradise.

Dinner with a view: You can picnic lakeside at state parks or dine in restaurants perched along the shore.

A date with lady luck: Whether you want to roll dice, play the slots, or hope the blackjack dealer goes bust before you do, you'll find round-the-clock gambling at the casinos in Reno and on the Nevada side of the lake.
