We feel so lucky to live and work in such a beautiful part of the world. Trip Advisor does an excellent job capturing what makes the Truckee Tahoe area amazing and unique.
The Truckee-Lake Tahoe area along the California-Nevada border is one of the most breathtaking destinations you can visit for scenic mountain beauty, romantic getaways and outdoor excitement. When you are here, the worries and cares of this world quickly disappear, replaced by the fresh mountain air and the relaxed atmosphere. Donner Lake features a public beach and Donner Memorial State Park offers diverse outdoor fun with campsites, trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding and rock climbing. Travel just a mile north Interstate 80 along the Little Truckee River and you’re at Boca Dam and Reservoir, featuring magnificent fishing with rainbow, brook, and brown trout plus Kokanee salmon. Don’t miss the chance to enjoy a meal at Moody’s Bistro & Lounge or Thai Nakorn Restaurant. At 22 miles by 12 miles, Lake Tahoe is the nation’s largest alpine lake. The beautiful blue water is surrounded by 72 miles of gorgeous shoreline. Tahoe offers water sports in the summer and winter sports during the snow-rich winters. Boreal Mountain Resort, Alpine Meadows Ski Resort, and Squaw Valley USA are among the dozens of world-class sites for skiing here. After a day of great times on South Shore of Lake Tahoe, check out some of the area’s top eateries, including The Beacon Bar & Grill and The Fresh Ketch Seafood Restaurant. Fire Sign Café and Swiss Lakewood Restaurant are among the favorites at West Shore. And of course, casinos are abundant here, including the legendary Harrah’s.
