Visit South Lake Tahoe - Best of South Lake Tahoe

It’s hard to break South Lake Tahoe’s sightseeing itineraries into a series of standard tourist attractions. Yes, it’s a city, but nearly everything worth seeing here is outdoors.

In the summer, the fir and pine covered mountains overlooking the beautiful Lake Tahoe offer up a wealth of activities, most of which is hiking. Miles and miles of beaches and waterfalls make it a water sport favourite too! It’s a winter favourite too, when the slopes are crowded with skiers and sledders.

Complementing these outdoor attractions are a number of spas and casinos, which, though not of any great particular not by themselves, collectively manage to put the final polish on the city’s image as a laid back, worry free holiday destination.
