We visited Commons Beach twice during our stay in Tahoe City. With the playground, grass area, nice restrooms, and of course, the lake, and all the shops and restaurants right up the stairs from there, it was a great spot for kids and adults alike!

Small beach with lots of families. Still didn't feel crowded. Great views and lots of water activities. Restrooms close by and clean. Very relaxing area.

The sun sets behind you but that makes the lake and, if you're lucky enough to have a moon in the sky, the moon SHOCKINGLY BEAUTIFUL. There are few better places to walk up to the lakefront for the perfect photo. There's plenty of parking.

We were lucky enough to visit Commons Beach on the last day of the free summer concert series. Great surprise to find everyone enjoying the music and local food carts. Great views of the lake, plenty of parking and local shopping for everyone to enjoy.
