- Lake TahoeNov 25, 2013
Tahoe is an amazing year-round destination. In the winter/spring, the skiing and snowboarding is world class; in the spring/summer/fall, hiking is popular and the beaches are beautiful spots (the water can be pretty cold though!). And the gambling scene--well, that's good (or bad, depending on your luck) anytime.

Rent out a cabin to spend time on the Lake during Spring/Summer or in the mountains for Winter months. Yay for snow!

Lake Tahoe is where the alpine highlife of the ski slopes meets the kick-back attitude of the lakeside resort - the California esthetic at its finest. If you're into rock-climbing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, mountain biking, skiing or snowboarding, you'll feel like you've died and gone to heaven on the shores of Lake Tahoe.

For a cool Sierra Nevada mountain escape in summer, Lake Tahoe is where a lot of Californians look first when it comes time to head out on the weekend. South Lake Tahoe is always overcrowded, but if you stay on the west or north shores in one of the woodsy cabins, you'll find at least a little peace and maybe even have a sunset beach walk to yourself. In winter, this is the top skiing & snowboarding destination in California.

Lake Tahoe is known for the lakes, mountains, and casinos. Outdoor sports lovers will delight in Lake Tahoe, whether it's in the summer or winters. For those who aren't into sports, the casinos will keep you entertained.Recommended for

The nice thing about Lake Tahoe is that it's pretty much fun to visit all year round. You can get a cabin and go skiing/snowboarding in the winter. You just have to make sure that you have chains for your tires before heading there. The road can be really hard to drive during winter especially if it's snowing.
The summer is great in Lake Tahoe if you're an outdoor person. There are tons of water sports like parasailing and jetskiing. There are tons of vendors ready to rent you equipment. You can also go bike riding.
There are some casinos around so you can gamble. They are certainly not like the casinos in Vegas or anything so don't set yourself up with a high expectation.

Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America. and with a depth of 1,645 ft, that's the USA's second-deepest behind Crater Lake. Crater Lake is actually more stunning, but there's nothing like seeing Lake Tahoe for the first time on US 50 as you come down the "hill". When Gayle and I travel to Nevada, it's our marker that her Mom's house in Genoa is close at hand.
Other Lake Tahoe views that I've enjoyed include skiing at Homewood, having Lunch at the Beacon Cafe at Camp Richardson, strolling along King's Beach (North Shore), and driving West over the Spooner Summit.. Tahoe is also the word that comes up in the Winter, when Internet searches are conducted to check on chain requirements and travel plans are made or broken. In whatever weather, Lake Tahoe is a special place that this Californian shouldn't so often take fro granted.
