Lake Tahoe Car Rentals & Travel Guide

Lake Tahoe is a beautiful freshwater lake surrounded by the snowy Sierra Nevada mountain range that lies across both the California and Nevada state lines. For tourism purposes, Lake Tahoe is broken up into North Lake Tahoe and South Lake Tahoe, and each has a different flavor about it.

North Lake Tahoe is more nature-oriented, where you can go on an adventurous hike, bike, or ride along the mountains. You can also take part in one of the many water activities, such as kayaking, paddle boarding, or river rafting.

In contrast, South Tahoe is more widely known as a place where you can go to party after you get your fill of snowboarding. No matter what your Lake Tahoe plans might be, if you book a car rental in Lake Tahoe you'll be able to get around to do it all.

Driving in and Around Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is approximately 25 miles from the Minden-Tahoe Airport and 35 miles from the Reno-Tahoe International Airport by bus shuttle, taxi, or car rental pickup service.

After you've had your fill of the Lake Tahoe area, you can take the 20-minute drive over to Carson City to have an adventurous hang gliding experience, or you can check out the Nevada State Museum. On the California side, you could visit Olympic Valley — which is about a seven-minute drive from the lake — and ski, go fly fishing, or relax at one of the many spa locations in the area.

Securing a Lake Tahoe rental car will allow you as well as all of your adventuring gear to get around Lake Tahoe and the surrounding destinations easily.
