Sure, you’re OK with commuting, but why waste your time driving on vacation. If you stay in the central casino corridor, you’re literally footsteps from everything. In one direction you can head down to the lake, in the other, you’re just a few minutes walk from one of National Geographic’s top ten trails in the world – Van Sickle Bi-State Park. If you come in the winter, you have easy access to world-class skiing via the gondola that shuttles you up to Heavenly Mountain.

The Mountains That Never Sleep

What’s the worst part of visiting a mountain town? Everything shuts down WAY too early. You’re from the city that never sleeps because you know how to live life to the fullest and expect that on vacation too! No problem in South Lake Tahoe. Even if you don’t gamble, the casinos provide world-class fine dining such as Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen, multiple nightclubs to dance the night away, and easy access to late-night munchies. How many other ski towns in America can say that?

Great Weather All Year Long

We can hear you, “Yea. Yea. Yea. That’s fine, but what about the weather?” Lake Tahoe’s climate is perfect for an alpine destination. In the summer, temperatures range between 69 and 77 degrees with nearly 90% of the days being sunny without any felt humidity. You’re not going to get much better than this when it comes to enjoying our miles and miles of Caribbean-like beaches.

In the winter, we get some of the most snow in the country. Our highest peaks typically receive up to 500 inches annually. Don’t worry though, on average ALL of our snow comes on 50 days per year. This means if they were giving out an award for the best weather to ski in Lake Tahoe, we would win every winter.
