Lake Tahoe, California
Lake Tahoe is eternally beautiful yet its stunning landscape enters another dimension come the winter. If you are an avid ski bunny then feel free to head straight for one of over a dozen ski resorts, or perhaps try snowshoeing or ice-skating.
For those less keen on skiing there is plenty on offer to entertain all age groups; take a dip in one of the many hot springs looking out over a beautiful vista, try a long nature hike with a spot of bird watching, go on a stargazing trip or enjoy Tahoe’s vibrant night life scene. Lake Tahoe gets an incredible average of 125 inches of snow a year, so you could always just make a snowman.
The Best view of lake Tahoe, is perhaps from the top of the Heavenly Gondola Ride, with its 9,123 feet high observation Deck. Don’t miss taking a stunning walk in the Emerald Bay State Park, a gorgeous park surrounded by forested hillsides of glacier-carved granite. At the center of the striking blue water, you can admire a small islet. If you like architecture, definitely stop by the Scandinavian castle, Vikingsholm.
