Kings Beach is located on the north shore of the popular California/Nevada destination of Lake Tahoe. It doesn’t have the party reputation of South Tahoe, but it still has plenty to offer those looking looking for a little outdoor adventure or some relaxing fun in the sun. Check out some things that make Kings Beach a great travel destination.
Kings Beach boasts over 900 feet of sandy shores, so it’s no surprise that there are a plethora of water sport activities to choose from, including paddleboarding, surfing, and kayaking. During the summer months, check out live performances on the beach (and fireworks on the Fourth of July). For a different vibe, tee up under majestic pine trees at the Old Brockway Golf Course. In the winter, rent some skis and hit the slopes, or take a snowmobile tour. For two weeks in August, explore the annual ARTour, where artists open their studios to the public. And sometime in early December, get into the holiday spirit by checking out the annual tree lighting ceremony. Or cab it to the nearby casino in Crystal Bay, a one-stop shop for nighttime entertainment including concerts, comedy shows, dining, and a nightclub.
Lake Tahoe’s surrounding areas are alive with activity throughout the year. Venture out to to experience one of the many festivals happening around the lake year-round, including Squaw Valley’s Brews, Jazz & Funk Fest (August), or the Autumn Food and Wine Festival (September) in Northstar. (Ask about complimentary shuttles to and from nearby cities.) Head southwest to experience great views of the area from Tahoe City’s mountain tops (a view made especially beautiful by lights decorating the city during the holidays). And while backcountry skiing is limited in the north shore, just head a bit northwest to Truckee for some of the best backcountry skiing/snowboarding terrain for people of all skill levels.
North Lake Tahoe is perfect for anyone looking for a quiet getaway. Book a home in Kingswood Estates, a newer residential neighborhood just 1 mile above Kings Beach. Book a charming cabin in Tahoe Vista, less than 2 miles from Kings Beach. Or venture a bit further out to Incline Village, for easier access to ski resorts like Diamond Peak and, a little bit further out, Mt. Rose.
