Adorned by a cobalt blue lake and a scenic mountain range, Lake Tahoe is a breathtaking alpine lake located in North America. A hot spot amongst visitors and local Californians, you can never go wrong with a trip up north! Located on the state line of California and Nevada, this resort town offers diverse options for all of its guests. You are able to swim, fish, sail or simply relax along the shores of the lake year long. Some of the more popular activities this town offers are hiking in the beautiful forests of the High Sierra, linked by miles of trails, or enjoying a serene lakeside picnic or dining in one of the many highly praised restaurants that sit along the shore. The best time to visit Lake Tahoe would be during the winter months if you’re an avid skier. However, keep in mind that it snows heavily up north, so road closures are common. Many businesses are also closed during the months of October-May. Summer is also a popular season, but expect congestion and overpopulation (many locals opt to go up north to get away from the city heat). The ideal time to visit would be the fall (September and October) and late spring. Crowds usually thin out but the lake remains beautiful.
