The people of Lake Tahoe in California are all too quick to admit that this is the area that really has it all. Loved by both locals and visitors alike, it is a diverse area that suits all tastes. The cobalt-blue, glassy lake itself is kissed by 300 days of sunshine year-round, so get the sun cream at the ready if you are thinking of going camping with kids in Lake Tahoe! The lake is nestled between the majestic Sierra Nevada mountains; with the Emerald Bay State Park, Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park, Sand Harbor Beach, and Spooner Lake all on its doorstep, it truly is a haven for outdoor, family-filled fun. For an active vacation where the great outdoors is the living room, this is a great spot. Try skiing and a host of other winter sports in the winter months, or windsurfing, swimming, kayaking, and hiking in warmer temperatures. Whatever the time of year, and whatever your family's interest, Lake Tahoe will meet and exceed expectations.
