Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is a great place to come for a short trip or a vacation.

Lake Tahoe Vacation Packages

Sacramento, the state capital, is about 85 miles to the southwest of Lake Tahoe, while Tahoma is 7 miles to the west.

If you're traveling with children, you'll want to set aside a day or two to enjoy one or two of Lake Tahoe's excellent family-friendly attractions. Pack a daypack and head to Kings Beach Miniature Golf, the KidZone Museum and, if time allows, Magic Carpet Golf.

Place your bets at Sharkey's Casino or Park Tahoe Casino Resort, just a couple of great options in Lake Tahoe's range of casinos. The Casino at Harrah's Lake Tahoe and the Casino at Harveys Lake Tahoe are some more options for those visitors with time to spare.

Take a break from sightseeing and experience the season's colors by checking out one or two of the much-loved public parks in the area. Emerald Bay State Park and D. L. Bliss State Park are ideal options for those seeking a little time-out. Other places to explore are Campground by the Lake and Sugar Pine State Park.

If you are keen to get information about Lake Tahoe, Taylor Creek Visitor Center and NorthLake Tahoe Visitors and Convention Bureau are handy centers.

On a fine day, head to Hell Hole Reservoir or Donner Lake. These are two places where Lake Tahoe visitors often stop at to recharge their batteries. Go for a hike and if the sun is shining, cool off with a splash in the water.

Vacationers in Lake Tahoe who are searching for a relaxing place to spend the afternoon outdoors will find large stretches of scenic coastline. You'll have plenty of options with the popular Zephyr Cove Beach and El Dorado Beach nearby. If neither of these are what you are searching for, you might like to try Regan Beach or Meeks Bay Beach.

To see the wild areas for which Lake Tahoe is renowned, take a trip out to its many nature parks. A couple of the most loved in the area are considered to be Kings Beach State Park and Washoe Meadows State Park. Also, check out Sand Harbor of Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park or Van Sickle Bi-State Park if you can.

Grab a friend and explore some of the popular cultural spaces nearby. The Emigrant Trail Museum and Gatekeeper's Museum offer a range of displays and collections that will be sure to capture your interest. The Watson Cabin Museum and the Watson Cabin Living Museum are also worth looking at.

Enjoy a visit to the Tahoe Maritime Museum, the primary seafaring history museum in the region. Learn about life at sea through tales of sail and steam while enjoying fine examples of old ship replicas and other interesting artifacts while you take a trip through the venue's exhibit spaces.

If you're interested in art, check out the Truckee Gallery, a noteworthy exhibition space in the local area.

Include a stop at the Lake Tahoe Historical Society Museum or the Old Jail Museum on your list of places to see so you can get a feel for the area's history.

Discover the region's past at some of the heritage sites in Lake Tahoe. Start your local history tour by heading to the Tallac Historic Site and the Rocking Stone Tower. Vikingsholm Castle and Sierra Mountain Cemetery are also recommended to learn about the past in Lake Tahoe.

St. Nicholas Episcopal Church is a snapshot of times long gone. Linking culture and history, this old destination is well worth your time.

Before you pack your toothbrush and head off home, make sure you stop at some of the hidden gems here. A couple of worthwhile options are Tahoe City Marina and Ski Run Marina. Alternatively, the Heavenly Mountain Gondola and Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park are some other possible options.
