Lake Tahoe Vacation & Travel Guide
Welcome to Lake Tahoe!
Lake Tahoe is one of the deepest lakes in the United States. An incredibly blue lake with 72 mi ( 116 km) of shoreline and a visual clarity to a depth of 100 ft (30 m), Lake Tahoe straddles the borders of Nevada and California. While visitors are drawn to the Nevada side of the water for gambling in the many casinos, the California side draws a multitude of outdoor enthusiasts. Anywhere between 125 in to 500 in (315 cm to 1.3 m) of snow falls annually, giving Lake Tahoe and the surrounding area one of the largest ski resort concentrations in North America. A wealth of parks and recreational areas are readily available, providing visitors with ample places to hike, fish, cross-country ski and camp. Lake Tahoe is also a popular choice for destination weddings, with the scenic views, activity selections and a central location that attracts couples wanting to elope.
