Holiday in South Lake Tahoe

Orientation

Year-round activities at South Lake Tahoe

The city of South Lake Tahoe lies in El Dorado County, California and sits on the shoreline of Lake Tahoe, America's largest alpine lake. Visitors will find an area of spectacular scenery that takes in crystal waters and tree-covered mountain slopes while offering a wide range of outdoor activities. These include snowboarding and skiing in the winter while the summer months are perfect for lake swimming, sunbathing on the beach, hiking in the mountains, or taking part in watersports.

A town with altitude

The town of South Lake Tahoe developed as several small settlements gradually merged into one. It was the 1960s Winter Olympics that put Lake Tahoe firmly on the winter sports map. The town's resident population of around 24,000 people increases massively during the winter ski season, especially on New Year's Eve. The town is split into two distinct areas. The western part is mainly residential while to the east are commercial ventures and the town's casinos. This eastern part is also home to Heavenly Village from where the state-of-the-art Heavenly Gondolier soars to a height of over 9,000 feet. From the top, you can enjoy dramatic views of Lake Tahoe, Desolation Wilderness, and Carson Valley.

Getting there

Two airports serve South Lake Tahoe. One is the Reno-Tahoe International Airport and the other is Sacramento. US Highway 50 links the town to Sacramento in California and Carson City in Nevada.

Activities

A winter recreation destination

South Lake Tahoe is right on the doorstep of 16 ski resorts that include Ski Heavenly, Diamond Peak, and Mount Rose. Dog sledding, snowshoeing, snowboarding, and ice skating also keep you warm on cold winter days.

A summer destination

Whether you want family-friendly beaches such as Kiva and Pope beaches or want to party the night away at El Dorado beach, you'll find the shoreline of Lake Tahoe dotted with pretty coves and sandy spots. For activity on the water, head to Zephyr Cove for sailing, parasailing, and kayaking. Alternatively, simply enjoy a relaxing lake cruise on the Tahoe Queen.

A destination for drivers

Drive around the lake to enjoy views of its sheer granite cliffs and jagged shoreline, stopping off to take pictures of the green water in the teardrop-shaped Emerald Bay. There are panoramic views at Inspiration Point while to the west of the lake is the desert landscape of Desolation Wilderness.

Lake Tahoe is the USA's second deepest lake and the 16th in the world while its purity of 99.994% is comparable with commercially distilled water.

1. A round of golf in miniature

Fun for all the family is the Magic Carpet Miniature Golf Course. This imaginative course features spiders, dinosaurs, and recreations of the area's natural features.

2. Have a flutter at the tables

South Lake Tahoe is known for its casinos so after spending a day enjoying outdoor activities why not try your luck at Bill's Casino or the Horizon? As well as watching the roulette wheel spin, you can catch a big-name show or dine on world-class cuisine.
