Seniors Eye The Jewel Of The High Sierra

Lake Tahoe, a large freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada, is located along the border between California and Nevada just west of Carson City. Seniors discover that it is the largest alpine lake in North America.

Blessed with sparkling natural beauty, it has been selected as the #1 most popular destination in the US; it is considered the jewel of the High Sierra.

A couple years back USA Today called North Lake Tahoe “America’s Best Lake.”  What do you get when you combine California sunshine, Nevada night life and snow… heaps of snow?

North Lake Tahoe is a great ski vacation destination with three world-class ski resorts — Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar. Tahoe City is full of adventure, culture, fine dining and great entertainment all along the lake shore.

Historic Lakeside Lodges Attract Seniors

TripAdvisor is always great place to check out travel plans and with 88 things to see and do, you will have a plethora of choices when you arrive.

The area is busiest in summer, even more than during winter ski season, but it’s the only time many of the area attractions are open, especially if you want to visit some of the historic, lakeside lodges.

A major draw for folks of all ages is the Tahoe Treetop Adventure. Started in Europe, Aerial Adventure Parks are comprised of a series of courses linking tree platform to tree platform with a variety of bridges and/or zip lines.

Included among the top sights is Emerald Bay State Park designated a National Natural Landmark for its brilliant panorama of mountain-building processes and glacier carved granite.

The natural beauty, geology and history of this unique island make it one of the highlights of any visit to the Lake Tahoe area.So take your pick. North Lake Tahoe or South Lake Tahoe.

Both are awesome. South Lake Tahoe is one of the most beautiful sites in the US. When you drive along the highway and through the rock tunnel, the pristine blue water is breathtaking.

Beautiful Mountains Awe Seniors

Surrounded by majestic mountains, Lake Tahoe is not just any lake. It is a lake with world-class ski resorts, thrill-inducing cliffs, spectacular views, fluffy white powder, and run after run of epic skiing. Choose from Olympic-caliber downhill and cross country skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating, and more.

From exciting black diamond to gentle green circle runs, resorts in Lake Tahoe offer something for everyone. Mountains with jaw-dropping cliffs, serene glades and spectacular views of the lake.

And snow, 400 inches of snow a year that pile up into epic powder, tight corduroy groomers, raucous terrain parks and endless moguls.

I love interactive maps and this one will fill you in on all the amenities and activities of the region in and around the lake. So fire up folks.  Don’t miss joining in all the fun at Lake Tahoe, California.  You’ll be glad you made it a must on your travel bucket list.  jeb
