Lake Tahoe, California encompasses the south, west and north shore communities of Kings Beach, Carnelian Bay, Tahoe Vista, Tahoe City, Homewood, Squaw Valley, Truckee and South Lake Tahoe. Lake Tahoe has something to offer for everyone, from a wonderful place to raise a family, to a year-round playground for visitors from all over the world. In the wintertime, the region offers the largest concentration of ski resorts in the United States. Come summertime, the High Sierra explodes with some of the most sought-after terrain for biking, boating, golfing, fishing, beaching, paddle boarding and endless additional options for outdoor fun and adventure. From South Lake Tahoe packed with big-name entertainment and casino resorts, to the west side of the lake where a slower pace and an Old West feel fill the streets with distinctive restaurants, shops, inns and bars, this area is rich in variety. Couple this with the convenience of Reno and Carson City, Nevada being only a 40 minute to an hour drive away, San Francisco about 4 hours away, Oakland about 3 hours away, and Sacramento about 2 hours away.
