History and Transportation
Formed about 3 million years ago, Lake Tahoe is the largest freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Once a detour for pioneers moving west, it's now a resort for people wanting rest and relaxation in the several beach hotels near Lake Tahoe. Mostly surrounded by peaks, you'll find any outdoor sport from water skiing to snow skiing, depending on the season.
With an average elevation of 6,225 feet, you might want to practice on the bunny slopes first! If you're looking to explore all the parks and trails, there is a public transit system. You could also rent a car because you never know when your schedule might call for a little more time in the woods before searching for dinner.
