One of the world’s clearest, largest, and deepest alpine lakes has a split personality — in more ways than one. Not only does this legendary lake straddle California and Nevada, but it also offers a wide breadth of experiences and vacation homes that span from luxe to laid back. From verdant state parks to alpine meadows or lakefront villages like Kings Beach and Tahoe City to glittering casinos — your Lake Tahoe getaway will be just as spectacular as its Sierra Nevadas landscape. Swim, boat, or fish while watching the sun set over cobalt-blue waters. Ski or bike on quiet slopes. Soak in a hot tub at your North Lake Tahoe cabin rental or cozy up to a fireplace at a vacation rental in Emerald Bay — both perfect spots to spend your Lake Tahoe vacation. Discover your perfect basecamp for adventure here.
