Tahoe Vista

There are more lodging choices in Tahoe Vista than you can shake a kayak paddle at. From tickle-your-toes-under-the-cozy-covers B & B’s to high-end fractional ownerships and mom and pop motels, as its name suggests, Tahoe Vista lodging is snuggled right against the lakeshore.

It’s also a fave of outdoor enthusiasts. For lake lovers, kayaking from one of several hidden beaches, or a motorized excursion from the new Tahoe Vista Recreation Area boat launch facility are two Tahoe Vista treats. For landlubbers, the nearby Regional Park sports year-round trailheads for mountain biking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, a disc golf course, nature trails, and sweet swing sets. Of course, with all that exercise, it’s easy to work up an appetite. Tahoe Vista’s got your bases covered there, too. Gargantuan steaks for two, authentic Mexican fare, a quaint summer-season ice cream shop and flights of fine wine are menu highlights worthy of a trip to remember.
