About these ratings

Sitting only about 40 miles south of “The Biggest Little City” on the border of Nevada and California, Lake Tahoe is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful places in the country, boasting soaring mountains and crystal-clear waters. It’s best known as a skiing destination, where visitors will find top-notch facilities like Squaw Valley USA (which hosted the 1960s Olympic Winter Games) and the massive Heavenly Ski Resort. But Lake Tahoe also makes for an excellent summer getaway thanks to its sprawling beaches, ample boating and fishing opportunities and well-maintained hiking trails.

For the best views (no matter the season), recent visitors recommend a stop at Emerald Bay State Park on the California side of the lake. According to a visitor:  “It is breathtaking! I now consider it my new favorite place … I got several great shots from Emerald Bay. Very picturesque!!”

You can get to the area from Reno by following I-395 south to Rt. 431 and then hopping onto Rt. 28, which traces the entire perimeter of the lake. You don’t have to pay to tour Lake Tahoe, but different attractions around town may charge admission. For more information, visit our Lake Tahoe travel guide.
