Nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains between California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe vacations are a great place to visit any time of year. The weather is sometimes unpredictable, but with sunshine 75% of the year, it's no wonder Lake Tahoe is a top vacation destination.
Winter sports enthusiasts will enjoy Lake Tahoe's fantastic ski conditions. Lake Tahoe vacation rentals have access to thousands of acres of ski terrain and enjoy both heavy snowfall and one of North America’s largest snowmaking systems. Resorts and private vacation homes dot the mountainsides, and include such famous hotspots as Heavenly Mountain Resort.
There are just as many things to do in Tahoe for the non skier - snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and shopping, the casinos, spas or sightseeing. The casinos offer gambling 24 hours a day as well as shows and multiple dining options.
Frequent visitors to Lake Tahoe will have a hard time deciding whether the summer or winter is their favorite time for a Lake Tahoe vacation. Water activities abound, if you like to fish there are many options for a quite day with your rod and reel. If you like a faster pace rent a speed boat or try tubing, parasailing, or waterskiing.
Miles of trails circle the lake and offer breathtaking views whether on foot or mountain bike. While some trails are challenging there are options for more leisurely hiking as well. Golfers have lots of options for teeing off on the courses of Lake Tahoe, whether they are expert or novice. There are plenty of hotels and resorts in all budget ranges, but for a more authentic vacation a vacation rental can't be beat. Cabins nestled in the mountains or spacious lakeside vacation homes with spectacular views are just a few offerings in the Lake Tahoe area.
