Beautiful Lake Tahoe

Watery summer playground in the mountains

Located in the snowy Sierra Nevada mountain range of the United States, Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America. It is also the second deepest freshwater lake in the United States.

Beautiful Lake Tahoe, is the mountain lake where California and Nevada meet. Two-thirds of the lake is located in California, while one-third is in Nevada.

Lake Tahoe has become as much a playground in summer as it's known as in the summer, largely due to a dry-summer continental climate with stunning blue skies.

The Lake Tahoe area has long been a summer and winter retreat for the rich and famous. The eccentric business magnate Howard Hughes to the iconic actress Marilyn Monroe are among the list of former residents. More recently the likes of Oracle CEO Larry Ellison and James Hetfield of Metallica have had homes on the lake. Skiers Daron Rahlves, Julia Mancuso, Marco Sullivan and Shannon Bahrke also call the Tahoe area home.

World renowned for the crystal cobalt blue clarity of its water and the surrounding panorama of mountains on all sides, Lake Tahoe welcomes athletes, adventurers and travelers to its easygoing woodland environment.

In the summer, sailing and motor-boating are a primary activities on Lake Tahoe. Every August the lake becomes home to one of the most prestigious wooden boat shows in the country, the Lake Tahoe Concours d'Elegance.

Other popular summer activities include parasailing, water-skiing, wake-boarding, riding jet skis and eco-friendly paddle sports. Kayaking and stand up paddle (SUP) boards have become become very popular.

Given the clarity of the water, SCUBA diving is popular, in part because Lake Tahoe offers dive sites with dramatic drop-offs and wall dives.

Whether you swim, fish, sail, or simply enjoy some rest and relaxation on its shores, you'll be left impressed by the unforgettable beauty of Lake Tahoe.
