Arts & Culture
One of North Lake Tahoe's lesser-known attributes is its culture of performing and visual arts. Quaint galleries line the streets, offering perspectives of the Lake only a local artist could capture. Contemporary sculpture and mixed media peek out from shop-front windows, decorating banks and libraries. Landscape images burst from quilts hanging on walls in our favorite restaurants. Meanwhile, dinner theater and a shoreline Shakespeare festival transform play-watching into a full-fledged endeavor.
To the right, you'll find a starting guide to the arts and culture that North Lake Tahoe offers. Tour a gallery, buy tickets to a play... enjoy the North Shore's fine arts.
