Nestled in the Sierra Nevada between California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe is the perfect destination for a group getaway with friends or family. As North America’s largest alpine lake, this freshwater lake offers an abundance of activities year-round.

During the summer, look forward to jet skiing, parasailing, and kayaking on the water; as well as hiking and bicycling on the many trails around the lake. The cold, snowy seasons are ideal for winter sports, especially since there are plenty of nearby ski areas such as Squaw Valley and Sierra-at-Tahoe. From luxury lakefront properties to cozy, secluded log cabins, there are plenty of vacation rentals to choose from for your upcoming trip to Lake Tahoe.
