Lake Tahoe Travel Resources

Lake Tahoe travel businesses

When you drive up I-80 and see the area surrounding Lake Tahoe, it becomes clear why the area is one of the most well-known mountain destinations in the country. Located between California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America. However, its impressive size is only a portion of what Lake Tahoe has to offer its visitors. The area's scenic combination of mountains and waterways provides postcard photo opportunities at every turn as well as a natural playground just waiting to be explored.

The high alpine environment is not just a haven for nature lovers. Tahoe has no shortage of year-round fun. In the winter, visitors can choose from over 12 major ski resorts, including Squaw Valley USA, site of the 1960 Winter Olympic Games, not to mention some of the best downhill terrain in the country. Once the weather warms up, Lake Tahoe is a hot spot for biking, hiking, and many water sports, including kayaking and water skiing. No matter the season, Tahoe has plenty of options for active types.

The areas around Tahoe are filled with great attractions, shopping and dining. One local curiosity that's worth a visit is the Thunderbird Lodge, a six-acre estate that was established in 1939 that includes an "elephant house" previously occupied by the original owner's two-ton elephant. The estate is now open to visitors and can be toured. This interesting stop is just one of the many that Lake Tahoe has to offer.
