West Shore

The string of smaller Tahoe communities and state parks along Hwy. 89 is collectively known as the Lake Tahoe West Shore. It’s the Black Forest of Lake Tahoe, with a history just as compelling, that boasts a mossy, deep-woods aesthetic, not to mention Sugar Pine Point State Park, one of the most seductive at the Lake.

There is so much to see and do on the magical Lake Tahoe West Shore, it’s difficult to call out any one thing, much less 7 or 8 things. This side of the lake attracted the Washoe Indians, Lake Tahoe’s earliest residents reportedly 9,000 years ago. Several years later, gold rush miners came to relax. In fact, Chambers Landing, est. 1875, is the region’s oldest bar and is still bustling today.

Along the Lake Tahoe West Shore you’ll also find the Homewood Mountain Resort’s renovation. Plans include a quaint pedestrian village, mid-mountain lodge, gondola and underground parking.
