About 3 million people visit Lake Tahoe every year. To some, it is considered their family's annual vacation destination. But strangely enough, there are still many who have yet to visit the lake, which is split between California and Nevada.
Lake Tahoe has so much to offer year round without a doubt, but summer really is something special.
This past winter, Lake Tahoe had an amazing amount of snowfall. And as seasons change, the snow must go somewhere, and the lake is thriving! It's risen much over the natural rim, a very drastic change from just this past year.
Emerald Bay is known to be one of the most photographed places in the world, and with all of the fresh H2o, you can experience an awesome waterfall that rushes by within two feet of a lookout point over the bay. It's a must see!
If you have the chance, take a boat out to the middle of the lake. If you're lucky, you'll catch it before all of the snow melts. It's a strange contrast - the violent sun beats down on you at 6,224 feet, all while getting an awesome view of snow covered mountains!
Don't forget to dive in - the water is so clear, so fresh and feels amazing.
Tahoe is the sixteenth deepest lake in the world, and the fifth deepest in average depth. Why wouldn't you take advantage of such a special place? There are also many fun places to anchor, explore, and rock jump.. just start small :)
At the end of the day, there is nothing better than a sunset at the lake. There are many great spots to catch it, one would be to take a hike up into the mountains where you can be fully engulfed in nature.
Another, more easy place would be on a beach along the lake.
The water really reflects the colors in a magical way. Some people even decide to paddle board and experience it while floating on the water.
