We rode bikes to the west of Camp Richardson on the trail which parallels the highway but is not on the highway for several miles. Along the trail you can get to the Tallac Historic Site, Taylor Creek Visitor Center, and Baldwin Beach. If you go east you can get to the south end of South Lake Tahoe with many... More

We walked the "bike/walk/jog" trail from Tahoe City along the Truckee Rive to River Ranch. It's about 8+ miles round trip. You walk along the river in and out of shade from trees. There are a number of spots where you can walk down to the river. The trail has port a potties along the way and there are restrooms... More

Beautiful walk along the lake but too short. if you consider yourself an above average walker. Various historical information stops. More info if you start or end at the "Fanny" bridge. Nice place to sit and watch the people and or boats

We visited in October. The weather was wonderful that day. My favorite part was the boardwalk down by the lake. There is some interesting information about the formation of the lake on a plaque along the boardwalk. It not only describes how the lake was formed, but has some illustrations of the types of rock found there. There is also... More

We spent all three days at Granlibakken. There are pools, spas, tennis, zip lines and the greatest food in the area. They are definitely a hard act to follow.

We love the views and the romantic atmosphere in this city, we stayed in autumn and it was cold (0 degrees) our first meal was in Artemis cafe an we enjoyed the amazing view of the lake, the nice greeck style flavores and the arquitectural wood and stone concept. It is a magic place for Honey Moon.

Breath taking views. Mountains, valleys, bike trails etc. One of the most beautiful places in the world. A place you should visit at least once.

There are road constructions going on, which makes the whole city look ugly. Also, because the construction, some of the street parking are not available, and that causes inconvenience to access the nearby stores.
