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. This haven sits in a prime location for accessing mountain activities such as hiking, mountain biking, motorcycle touring, and water recreation. It’s the largest community on the lake, with over 20,000 permanent residents. The town serves as the main stop for restaurants, shopping, and boating supplies, and is often the jumping-off point for people who want to explore the scenic drive around the lake.
