Highlights
The Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival which takes place every summer is located at Sand Harbor. Patrons can ease back on a sandy beach and enjoy some of the best theater ever written.
Geography/Environment
Lake Tahoe is located along the border of California and Nevada. About one-third of the basin is in Nevada and two-thirds is in California. The basin is bounded by the Sierra Nevada to the west and the Carson Range to the east. Lake Tahoe is admired for its great depth and clarity and beautiful alpine surroundings. Most of the terrain is mountainous, limiting development mainly to relatively flat lying areas along tributary streams. Of course, this geography is prized by newlyweds who want to ski and snowboard on their winter honeymoon and those who like a more adventurous summer honeymoon fly fishing, hiking or even camping (though we still recommend a nice honeymoon suite for at least part of your honeymoon).
Activities
Major recreational activities within the basin include casino gaming in Nevada, alpine and cross-country skiing, golfing, water sports, hiking, fishing, camping, and bicycling.
Climate and Weather
From beautiful to perfect, California's weather has attracted more transplants than her gold did during the 1800's.
