Lake of the Sky

I had the pleasure of living in Tahoe for 4 years. You can't help but continually acknowledge the beauty that surrounds you when visiting Tahoe.

Lake of the Sky

There are so many wonderful things to explore and do while in Tahoe. Perhaps the most important is to appreciate the silence. I love walking on the lake shore with my dog early in the morning. Some mornings the air is still and the lake looks like glass. The refreshing air calms and soothes you, the ultimate way to start your day. Tahoe is an enchanting place, be sure to relax your body and mind to completely feel the experience.${QuickSuggestions} Stay away from the casinos. The best and most relaxing spots on the lake on the smaller West and North Shore communities. You'll also get to experience the quaint, small town feel of Tahoe. And you'll here from locals why they would never live anywhere else.${BestWay} During the summer, there are wonderful bike trails that circle the lake. On these you can bike, rollerblade or walk. Or if you have a boat, many restaurants have parking for boats. There is also a public transportation system that goes to all of the ski resorts during the winter months. Traffic is sometimes a problem during the summer months. To best enjoy Tahoe, and to create less aggravation to the locals, I recommend biking. Often times people find the lake distracting while driving and are not able to thoroughly enjoy the trip.

Tahoe House Restaurant and Bakery

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by miss jen on June 30, 2000 I used to work here. But I still drive 3 hours because I am addicted to their coffee. They have the best coffee I've ever tasted. Each cup is fresh brewed, a style Europeans would consider to be an Americano. This coffee is not for the week at heart. Known by locals as Rocket Fuel, I am proud to say I am one of many who got people hooked on this coffee. Try a cup and you'll see why. Perfect place to stop by in the morning. Try the Ham and Cheese Croissants or a Swiss favorite, Nussgiphel(Hazelnut filled pastry). Take a loaf of Swiss Farm or six grain bread with you for a snack later. And of course you don't want to miss the Muesli Bread. mmmmm.... Stop by for dinner and eat in the bar in cozy sofas next to the fireplace. Also...try the desserts. They have quite a few specialties.

Emerald Bay

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by miss jen on June 30, 2000

Emerald bay is one of many beautiful jewels at Tahoe. This is a great place to take photos, of both the bay and Eagle Falls. You can hike up Eagle falls and explore many trails in the Desolation Wilderness area. If you plan to hike past the bridge, be sure to fill out the Wilderness Entry form. This is a somewhat tough hike if your climb all the way up the falls. There are lots of boulders to climb up. Once on the ridge, you'll see several alpine lakes and witness a different view of Lake Tahoe. There is a great loop trail that will drop you off about 1/2 mile from Eagle Falls. Look for the maps at the trail head and just have fun!! Be sure to wear proper shoes as this is a somewhat technical hike.
