Standing on the border of California and Nevada, the beautiful Lake Tahoe is a popular destination for people to escape the city and enjoy fresh mountain air replete with gorgeous natural vistas. In addition to hosting a variety of fun festivals and cultural events, Lake Tahoe vacations often involve fun winter activities like skiing and snowboarding.
Along with the Lake Tahoe itself, you can focus on exploring Lake Tahoe attractions like the numerous state parks in the area, including Emerald Bay State Park and D.L. Bliss State Park. You can also choose to visit one of the many stunning resorts, such as Squaw Valley, Northstar California, or Homewood Mountain Resort. And if you're looking for indoor entertainment, the nearby Harrah's Casino has live shows and games. Finally, remember to stop for a break of history at the Emigrant Trail Museum, which highlights the era of American pioneers.
Most hotels in Lake Tahoe will give you easy access to all the best festivals and events that the area has to offer, including the Lake Tahoe Music Festival. This annual event, which has been taking place during August for nearly 30 years, has welcomed fantastic, diverse acts such as Blues Traveler, Natalie Cole, and the Reno Philharmonic to play in the splendor of the surrounding environment.
One of the newer music fests gaining popularity is the Lake Tahoe Reggae Festival. However, one of the longer-running cultural events is the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival, which has been going for nearly 40 years.
