There is a little bit of everything in Lake Tahoe. You have casinos on the Nevada side, snow in the wintertime along with ski resorts and other snow sport activities. For the summertime visitors it the perfect place for swimming in the crystal clear waters. Other water sports like paddleboarding, kayaking, jet skiing, boating, and more are at your fingertips. But if you have a limited time there are some beautiful sights and activities that you can still participate in. I share my Lake Tahoe itinerary and how you what 24 hours in Lake Tahoe looks like if you’re visiting during the summer.
Lake Tahoe is the second deepest lake in the United States and straddles on the California/Nevada border. The alpine area makes the lake unique as its surrounded by mountains and pine trees. In the colder months, it’s a winter wonderland and during the summer the gorgeous blue water makes you feel like you’re in paradise. It’s an absolute dream place to photograph since you have different elements to capture. If you’re planning a visit then check out my list of the best photo spots in Lake Tahoe.
