Getaway Guide: Weekend Trip to Lake Tahoe

When the city gets to be too much, head west along the California coastline for a standard vacation, or go east up into the Sierra Nevada mountains and get lost in the tranquil beauty of Lake Tahoe while still enjoying more than 70 miles of shoreline. Lake Tahoe is located along the border of California and Nevada, offering two distinct getaway options – south Lake Tahoe and the north Lake Tahoe. The largest alpine lake in North America offers more than just ski resorts and wintertime activities. The lake is ideal for boating, sunbathing and camping out during the warm summer months, and the Nevada side boasts the year-round draw of casinos.
