South Lake Tahoe

High in the Sierra Nevada mountains on the shore of one of America’s most scenic lakes, South Lake Tahoe captures the spirit of the outdoors and serves as a hub for tourism activities surrounding the lake.
South Lake Tahoe is known for historic sites, beaches, and outdoors. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: hit the best photo ops around with Tahoe Photographic Tours, soothe aching muscles at Lake Tahoe Yoga, contemplate the waterfront views at Emerald Bay State Park, and contemplate the long history of Tallac Historic Site.

Plan my South Lake Tahoe trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
