Lake Tahoe is a large freshwater lake located between California and Nevada. Its depth is 1,645ft making it the second deepest lake in the United States after Crater Lake in Oregon. Listed below are ten things to do in Lake Tahoe.
I went to Lake Tahoe from Thursday, May 6th to Sunday, May 9th, with a group of friends that went to WVU. I have never seen water so beautiful, crisp, clear, and clean. It was mesmerizing. We stayed at the Marriott Grand Residence Club in Heavenly, South Lake Tahoe, California. Unfortunately, it was too cold for us to swim and too hot to go skiing; however, we made the most out of our experience regardless. Kayaking and hiking are two fun activities that we all got to experience. Listed below are ten things to do in Lake Tahoe!
