There’s only one body of water in North America with the designation “largest alpine lake on the continent”. It’s Lake Tahoe, the place with a state line running through it and a south shore that’s worth taking a peek at. Check out lastminute.com.au’s unbelievable offers on Lake Tahoe holiday packages and open your eyes to this awesome California town. Or Nevada town. Either way, you’re going to have an awesome time. Things to Do in Lake Tahoe
Since this town is located in two states and we know you want to see it all, get a car from lastminute.com.au’s Lake Tahoe car rental options for easy exploration of both. If you’re feeling lucky, head over to the Nevada side of town and split aces at one of the major casino resorts. Think of it as a mini Las Vegas—very mini—in the middle of the Sierra Nevada.
Once you’re done winning during your holiday in Lake Tahoe, head back to California and boat over to Emerald Bay State Park. This natural arm breaking off from the main lake is a great place to drop anchor and hang out for the day. Climb up onto Fannette Island in the middle of the bay and hang out in the ruins of the old tea house. We don’t think it’s haunted…but who really knows? Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
The hotel you get with your Lake Tahoe package will probably be in the South Shore area—where the action happens! There’s shopping all over this part of town, from outlets to modern fashion boutiques. The beauty of this area is that if one state doesn’t have what you’re looking for, just drive five minutes to the other state and search there.
Once you’re done shopping, toss the loot back in your room and grab a bite to eat. Where? Anywhere; it won’t be hard to find a good restaurant during your Lake Tahoe holiday. From Nevada to California, you’ll find steakhouses, seafood joints, Mexican cantinas and pizza parlours. It all depends on how well you did at the tables.
When it comes to nightlife, this town doesn’t hold back. You have a little bit of everything. There’s thumping nightclubs with bottle service for the high rollers all the way down to dirty dives with classic rock and Pabst Blue Ribbon for the hipsters. If you think you fall somewhere in between, there’s a bar for you as well. We also have awesome offers on San Francisco holiday packages in case you want to spend a night in the big city with flowers in your hair. It’s only a 300 km to the coast, so why not extend your annual leave and have an adventure within an adventure? What’s Next?
