South Lake Tahoe is a city on the southwestern edge of Lake Tahoe, a huge freshwater lake that sprawls across the border between California and Nevada. It’s a popular summer getaway where you can enjoy horseback riding, spectacular hikes, and a refreshing dip in crystal-clear, sun-warmed water. In winter, thrill-seekers head for ski resorts in the surrounding mountains. A must-visit is the Heavenly Mountain Resort, where you can enjoy almost 100 runs that extend across the mountains and into Nevada.

    Over the years, South Lake Tahoe has evolved into a fun-packed lakeside resort, complete with lavish casinos, luxurious hotels, and upscale shopping centres. It’s also a local go-to for nightlife – you’ll find everything from chic bistros to lively bars with wonderful lakeside views.
