Also called the “Jewel of Nevada”. The warm and inviting summer months are a water-sports paradise, and when it snows, well, winter sports-enthusiasts think they’ve died and gone to heaven. Materialized by nature’s cataclysmic volcanic and glacial master planning, Lake Tahoe is the nation’s largest alpine lake, spanning 22 by 12 miles of sparkling water surrounded by 72 miles of pristine shoreline and endless abundant forestry. The lake is divided into two shores, north and south.

South shore is considered the lively side. There’s no end of things to do both on lake and land. The year-round busy streets of Stateline are adorned with shopping, dining, nightlife and recreation options, all within walking distance of the many hotel-casinos. On the southeast shore, Zephyr Cove is a family fun beach bursting with watercraft activities from: parasailing, water skiing, boating, sea-doo’s and more. Land lovers have the options of kicking-back-with-a-Kindle and take in the serenity of its peace and beauty or attacking any one of the biking and hiking trails that abound. Either way, let nature take you away.

North Shore, well, life moves a little slower, the focus is on celebrating quiet mountain life. Although don’t be fooled by its pace, adventure abounds here as well. North Shore sweeps in a 180-degree arc from Incline Village, Nevada all the way south along the California shoreline to Emerald Bay. North Shore offers trails-on-trails of jaw-dropping scenery, wildlife, alpine flora, year-round recreation, state parks and historic resorts. One famous and very popular spot is Squaw Valley USA, known for hosting the 1960 Winter Olympics, and it’s just one of 18 alpine resorts in the Lake Tahoe area. The charming and diverse towns along the shoreline offer a myriad of options and experiences from relaxation destinations, trail exploration, skiing, golfing, fishing, and partaking in the excitement of Nevada-style gaming and nightlife activities.

You never have to wonder how to fill your days and nights
in one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.
