Your Lake Tahoe vacation

One of the most pleasant and scenic adventures America has to offer is a Lake Tahoe vacation. Tahoe is a huge lake shared by California and Nevada. The resort areas surrounding the lake, divided into North and South Shore, are known for winter skiing and other snow sports, casinos, summer fishing, boating, and golf. Many of the hotels in the area have slot machines and offer performances by well-known entertainers. The surrounding areas of the lake are suited for hiking and biking.
