Lake Tahoe, the clear, cobalt-blue lake tucked into the Sierra Nevada mountain range, welcomes athletes, adventurers and casual travelers to its easygoing and pine-scented atmosphere.

Over the course of the 20th century, Lake Tahoe blossomed into a scenic locale adored by visitors and locals alike.

Visit Lake Tahoe in the summer where you can paddle board on the sparkling lake during the day and gaze at the numerous constellations illuminating the sky at night. Or if the idea of careening down a mountain slope on skis quickens your heartbeat, pay Tahoe a visit it has it all.
