Lake Tahoe is a huge freshwater lake that sprawls across the border between California and Nevada. It’s a magical summer getaway location, where you can enjoy horseback riding, spectacular hikes, or a refreshing dip in crystal-clear, sun-warmed water.

In winter, thrill-seekers head for the surrounding mountains to visit ski resorts like Palisades Tahoe. South Lake Tahoe has evolved over the years into a fun-packed tourist town, complete with lavish casinos, decadent luxury hotels, and upscale shopping centres. It’s also a local nightlife hotspot, with everything from chic bistros to lively bars offering jaw-dropping lakeside views.
