Lake Tahoe is unrivaled in its natural beauty. Stunning landscapes filled with snow-capped peaks and pine forests lend way to a breathtaking freshwater lake.
A visit to this beautiful land and you are sure to fall in love with Tahoe instantly; it is no wonder this area is such a popular vacation destination.
Lake Tahoe stretches 22 miles long and 12 miles wide, with 72 miles of stunning shoreline, and is known for its beaches and ski resorts, and visiting in the winter calls for adrenaline-spiking snowy adventures. Popular activities include driving the lake loop, stopping to hike and take scenic photos, restaurant hopping, mountainside skiing and snowmobiling, and of course, relaxing in a hot tub. The snow, the lake, the people, the mountains, the views, the weather; it's all perfect and serene.
If skiing is not for you, try a snowmobile excursion. These exhilarating adventures cover over 40 miles of backcountry mountains and will introduce you to some of the most stunning sights Tahoe offers.
Adventure-seeking, food-loving travelers will want to add Lake Tahoe to your "must visit" list and, of course, visit during the winter season to capture the true essence of Lake Tahoe.
