A recent readers' poll by USA TODAY confirmed what we already knew: Lake Tahoe is the “Best Lake in America!” Editors narrowed the nominations to the top 16, and then readers were invited to weigh in. Over 5,000 readers voted via Facebook and Twitter, and the largest alpine lake in North America came out on top.
Lake Tahoe is famous for its timeless beauty. Bordered by the Sierra Nevada mountain range, we promise the view will take your breath away. Outdoor recreation, entertainment, nightlife, dining and gaming – South Lake Tahoe is a travel destination favorite and locals’ paradise.
Stay tuned. Travel editor Laura Bly will be revisiting the area and discovering new adventures for a larger story that will appear in USA TODAY Travel on August 10.
