Filled with over 39 trillion gallons of pure Sierra snowmelt and pushed a mile into the Californian and Nevada skies, Lake Tahoe is the USA’s largest alpine lake and one of the country’s oldest, year-round vacation playgrounds.
Lake Tahoe has forever drawn travellers to its shores, from the Native Americans who call this place Big Water, to the trappers, timber cutters and pioneers who followed.
When you’re ready for a little alpine magic, take the four-hour drive from San Francisco to the sunlit shores of Kings Beach. Set on Tahoe’s northern end, this beach was named after local card shark, Joe King, who used his winnings to develop some of the lake’s earliest lodgings. On the lake’s southern shore, is Pope Beach, where you’ll find another Tahoe institution, Camp Richardson.
From Pope Beach follow the bike path to the Taylor Creek Visitor Center. An open-air classroom for the entire family, the center features fabulous interpretative walks such as the Rainbow Trail.
Nearby, at DL Bliss State Park, follow the spectacular Rubicon Trail into neighboring Emerald Bay State Park. This park is home to the Eagle Falls Trail, a moderate two-mile hike that takes in some of the Sierra high country’s finest views.
When the ponderosa pines bend with the season’s first snow, Tahoe transforms into the nation’s favorite winter playground. Whether you’re looking for snow-capped peaks or crystal clear coves, places to bond with loved ones or pockets of pure solitude, The Lake in the Sky has it all.
My parents bought a vacay cabin in So. Lake Tahoe back in the early 90s. Tahoe is only 200 miles from the Bay Area where I’m from. I’ve been visiting there throughout my youth & teen. Last time I went was my friend’s wedding at some golf course 6 yrs ago. I kinda got tired of Tahoe & end up vacationing to major cities/states outside of CA like NYC, Denver, Texas, Seattle, etc.
LMAO my brother's middle name is Tahoe because my parents liked it so much. He is 24, and his first name is William. He hates that name, so he just goes my Tahoe...lmao after 14 of saying his name like that, I forgot his name was William. 😂
I live like 30-45 minutes away from Lake Tahoe . I recently went and realized the water was kinda dirty :/ I found trash, plastic, cardboard, and even a CIGARETTE BUD. Never in my life have I ever seen trash in the lake, and it kinda made me sad that people think it’s ok to trash the really beautiful water.
This destination is so beautiful! I too recently visited the Zephyr Cove at South Lake Tahoe and it just exceeded my expectations!

Would love to visit the King's Beach next time :)
