We are incredibly lucky to live about 90 minutes away from Lake Tahoe. It is a gorgeous place to visit in both winter for skiing and in summer for the beautiful hiking and water activities.
I wanted to put together some suggestions of activities and restaurants in Tahoe that we have loved. If you have never been to Lake Tahoe this is a place to add to your travel list because it really is so spectacular!
Many people think of Tahoe as a snow destination but in summer it is simply breathtaking and there is so much to do!
Lake Tahoe is actually located right on the border of Nevada and California and is usually divided up between South Lake Tahoe and North Lake Tahoe.
