Why go on Lake Tahoe family vacations?

Lake Tahoe is a wonder of nature. It’s the second deepest lake in the US (Crater Lake in Oregon comes in a bit deeper). A surface area of 191mi² makes it the largest Alpine lake in the country – so large the surface can appear convex on a still day. And an elevation of 6,225ft above sea level makes it the highest US lake too. A cross-border California/Nevada resident, with a shoreline that runs over 70 miles round, Tahoe’s surrounded by the Sierra Nevada. So as well as being a geological superstar, its good looks will take your breath away.
