Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe

Nothing quite prepares you for Lake Tahoe – it really is a sparkling emerald-turquoise color because the lake is so deep and the water is incredibly pure. Tahoe is a king-size lake (22 miles long, 12 miles wide), with smooth sandy beaches, surrounded by evergreen forests and high mountains. Lake Tahoe with kids is accessible year round, and there's a ton of things to do – hiking and water activities in the warm months, in winter, it's a snowy wonderland.

  Tip: Lake Tahoe is a very popular destination for families, summer and winter, but the fall is also a wonderful time to explore Lake Tahoe – in September and October, the beaches are deserted, trees turn golden yellow, it's a delightful time have it all to yourself.
