|About Lake Tahoe, California||Click here to see lodging list|
Formed 2 million years ago, and filled with water during the ice ages, the Lake Tahoe Basin offers a stunning panorama of surrounding mountains on all sides. And here is where you find the Lake Tahoe California Vacation Rentals.
As the largest freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada mountains, the lake sits at an elevation of 6,225 ft tucked between the states of California and Nevada. It has an astounding depth of 1,645 feet and the area is a major tourist attraction as home to ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions.
Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's economy and reputation. Mountain and lake scenery are attractions throughout the year. The Nevada side also includes large casinos. Highways provide year-round access from Reno, Carson City and Sacramento.
First inhabited by the Washoe tribe, the area's first european explorer was John C. Fremont after which a long mining history dominated the landscape. Although it is at a very high elevation, due to its depth Lake Tahoe never freezes and the water is especially clear and is protected by stringent environmental standards.
