This is truly a special place. The areas surrounding the largest alpine lake in the country offer a traveler plenty to do and see whatever season they come in. The many casinos on the south part of the lake are known for their entertainment, excellent restaurants, and as great places to have fun.
We enjoyed a lake cruise on the M.S. Dixie. In the winter, the cruises are different but still a wonderful family thing to do. We took a few snowmobile tours and did a lot of skiing. We visited the ski areas of Heavenly and Northstar. We drove up to site of the 1960 Winter Olympics, Squaw Valley USA. We spent a day there and had a blast. Be sure to ride the cable car.
