    Users Assigned: Kazmi  

    A freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the United States, just along the border between California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe is really a huge alpine lake based in North America, and is one of the major attractions for California and Nevada due to the variety of ski resorts, access to casinos, and the hiking, biking, camping, and other outdoor activities throughout the surrounding mountains. In particular, the Nevada side of the lake includes a variety of casinos, as well as access to Reno and Carson City.

    Lake Tahoe has been a fairly important tourist destination for American travelers for over 100 years, although it was the 1960 Olympics which popularized winter sports in the area and transformed many of the surrounding hotels into ski resorts. When looking at the lake from a traveler's perspective, the northern shore is filled with more reserved and peaceful resorts, while the southern shore is lined with casinos. The eastern shore is still fairly undeveloped, and the western side is the rugged and historic section. Considering the entire lakeshore is around 72 miles in length, there's plenty to take in regardless of your preferences.

    There are several towns, with Tahoe City and South Lake Tahoe the main ones, although there are a variety of other smaller towns scattered around the lake. Keep in mind that this is a ski resort area, which means heavy snow can be a possibility even as late as June, so if you are driving up on your own, pay attention to the weather or you could find yourself stuck unless you are driving a vehicle that can handle snowy conditions.

    Hiking, boating, world class golf courses and outdoor activities are the main reasons for coming here in the summer months, and skiing in the winter, so the experience you have in Lake Tahoe depends entirely on what time of year you come and what you want to see and do. Gambling is year-round.

        • Nice place with beautiful scenery. A ton of good hikes and camps around the area as well as lodging and hotel accommodations. The water is cold year round though just in case you planned on getting in.
        • Amazing lake with crystal clear water! We took the day & casually drove around the lake stopping at all the sight seeing places. So many beautiful places to get wonderful pictures. The kids loved it!
        • How is it possible Lake Tahoe has anything but a 5.0 Rating. It's perfect. With so much to offer. Golf, hiking, skiing, boating snowmobiling, photography, gambling, restaurants, biking, shopping, rafting, beaches, snorkeling etc..... Some of nature's best work on display, Tahoe is only 45 minutes from Carson City and an hour from Reno. Lake Tahoe one more reason to visit Northern Nevada.
        • Such a beautiful area in the winter time! A little nervous to drive when it's raining & snowing... so be sure to have a SUV and/or snow tires. A small area on the south side, but good places to eat. We only stayed for 4 days & that was enough for us!
        • Excellent spot to spend the day or stay overnight. Get a boat and hit the water, or relax by the lake side. Been there only once but I feel like it's optimal during late spring or early fall
