Nevada Visitor's Guide
The official Nevada Visitor's Guide is an essential tool for planning your best trip ever to the Silver State.
It's all here. The best of nature, the best of human nature. Start with a scenic and environmental wonder: Lake Tahoe. Add world-class sports and recreation. Unique dining, shopping and lodging in distinctive towns and resorts. So much variety, you can fill your days with peak experiences.
Or tune it all down; find a cabin in the woods where the quiet is interrupted only by the wind in the trees. You can go big or as relaxed as you and your crew desire in these mountains.
North Lake Tahoe takes the definition of vacation variety to new heights: jaw-dropping scenery, wildlife, alpine forests, state parks, historic estates and modern resorts. Its sweeping, 180-degree arc extends from Incline Village in Nevada all the way south along the California shoreline to Emerald Bay. The diverse towns and resorts all along its shoreline offer myriad opportunities to experience a carefree freedom, one that's set against one of the world's largest alpine lakes.
North Lake Tahoe is adventure-central, with best-of-class skiing and snowboarding, hiking and mountain biking, fishing, climbing and golf. You'll also enjoy eclectic shopping, gambling (on the Nevada side), dancing and fantastic dining. European chefs have run kitchens here since the 1960 Winter Olympics. In the last 30 years, they've been joined by chefs specializing in California cuisine and other fine dining options. It's easy to go casual here, too. You'll find laid-back places serving everything from fish tacos and burritos to burgers and sushi.
Each season brings its own spectacular attractions. During winter, snow settes gracefully around the lake, spring brings wildflower meadows, summer warms beaches and streams, fall is color and quiet.
Whatever the season, now is the time to make your visit happen. The following pages will help you plan your vacation, while our website can help with reservations and further details.
Take a moment and make time for you and yorus at North Lake Tahoe.
