Beyond the Pretty Blue Lake: The Tahoe Lifestyle
Mark Twain once called Lake Tahoe the “fairest picture the whole Earth affords.”
Maybe that’s why Tahoe is now a smorgasbord of ski bums, retirees, nature lovers and hard-working locals. People gravitate toward what many consider to be some of the most beautiful sites on Earth. It’s not unheard of for vacationers to visit Tahoe, fall in love with the lifestyle and then return as a lifelong resident.
The Tahoe lifestyle is all about the individual. From hiking to fishing, camping and snow sports, there really is something for everyone. While the community is small, the outdoors are endless. Whether you’re a casual outdoors aficionado or part-time resident/full-time woodsman, you’ll enjoy the endless wilderness, including the Desolation Wilderness area, composed of nearly 64,000 acres of explorable land.
A day in the life of a Tahoe resident might include shooing away bears, shoveling snow, taking a hike, riding a chair lift, floating the river or enjoying some live entertainment.
So try the Tahoe lifestyle for yourself. You won’t know what you’re missing until you do!
