Circumnavigating Lake Tahoe in Nevada and California
If you’re visiting Lake Tahoe, be sure to rent a car. A scenic two-hour drive on Highways 89, 50, and 28 will take you around the alpine lake. Head clockwise so your passenger can snap pictures out the window. While the view from Emerald Bay might get you the money shots, the pictures from Zephyr Cove, Meeks Bay, and the Tahoe State Recreation Area showcase a different perspective. Grab a bite in Incline Village on the north shore, and put your toes in the icy waters at Kings Beach.
