The largest alpine lake in North America, Lake Tahoe beckons with a host of scenic and recreational attractions. Located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, it offers gorgeous hiking and biking trails, as well as scenic drives like the Tahoe Rim Trail. Get a glimpse of native wildlife at the Emerald Bay State Park. Drop in at the lakeside Nordic mansion, Vikingsholm, that dates back to 1929. The Sand Harbor Beach and Spooner Lake in Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park boast excellent water sports facilities. Squaw Valley, on the other hand, hosted the 1960 Winter Olympics and is famous for its expansive ski runs. For a glimpse of the local nightlife, make your way to the Northstar California Resort or downtown Truckee to unwind at trendy cafes and invitingly lit restaurants, with the spectacular mountains as a backdrop.
