Glenbrook, Nevada is a small housing community on the east shore of beautiful Lake Tahoe in Nevada. Glenbrook is a great place to stay when visiting Lake Tahoe because of the great location in relation to the shores of Lake Tahoe, a private beach, and a great neighborhood vacation feeling. It is also close to other popular areas of the lake.
Spending time on the beautiful private beach at Glenbrook is probably the most popular option for visiting families, but there are also many great natural adventures you can take that will help you get to know the Lake Tahoe area. Glenbrook is most known for being the location of Cave Rock. The rock formation was created over 3 million years ago and remains one of the most prominent natural features in the Lake Tahoe area. It’s a beautiful place to take a short 15-minute hike to the top where you can experience stunning panoramic views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains. If you hike up Cave Rock, you won’t be disappointed and will walk away with some great photographs.
Other great things to do include taking a hike on the Deadmans Overlook Trail, which will take you to Deadman Point where you’ll again get to see beautiful panoramic views of Lake Tahoe. Also along the lake, you could head to Zephyr Cove and take a boat tour out to Emerald Bay, one of the most beautiful places in Lake Tahoe. Emerald Bay is also home to some great walking trails that offer great views. Zephyr Cove is a great place to enjoy the water where you can get great watercraft rentals from the Zephyr Cove Marina and enjoy the lake for yourself, or even go parasailing above Lake Tahoe. Take the short 10 minute drive to Stateline where there are great casinos, which offer fun nightlife activities to keep you busy and have a great time.
If you are interested in golfing, Glenbrook has a fantastic golf course with an old-world restaurant that serves lunch and dinner. Additionally, there are two great golf courses in the South Lake Tahoe area. The Edgewood Golf Course is noted as one of the most beautiful and scenic golf courses in the United States and runs along Lake Tahoe. It’s very challenging and also expensive, so you may want to consider a better value option if you’re not as committed to the game with the Lake Tahoe Golf Course, which is located in a mountain meadow and offers a fun challenge for golfers and great sights.
Glenbrook has a great location for exploring Nevada. Drive an hour north to Reno, Nevada, dubbed “The Biggest Little City in the World.” Reno is known for its stellar casinos and its proximity to many ski resorts. Additionally, downtown Reno’s National Automobile Museum showcases more than 200 vintage cars. The MidTown District is lined with shops and restaurants. North of downtown, Animal Ark is a sanctuary for rescued bears, cheetahs and other wildlife. Visit Virginia City to see a real-life western town that was one of the largest settlements between Denver and San Francisco in the mid- to late-1800s because of the discovery of silver in the Comstock Lode.
For a more natural experience, hike around Spooner Lake and pack a lunch. It’s a beautiful retreat from civilization, and easy to get to. You can also consider hiking up Shakespeare Rock to get a great view of Lake Tahoe - and some good exercise!
