Destination Inspiration: South Lake Tahoe, USA

Why go?

Looking out over Lake Tahoe’s still, clear-blue Alpine water, Bookers could be fooled into thinking the surrounding landscape is devoid of any activity. Well, think again! Look close enough and Bookers will find a hive of action buzzing, from the shores of South Lake Tahoe to the heights of the Sierra Nevada mountains. After the snow starts to fall, skiers and boarders swoop down the slopes of Heavenly Resort, while all year long hikers and bikers trailblaze Emerald Bay State Park, and golfers tee off at Edgewood Tahoe’s 18-hole course.

With the mountains looming overhead, the backdrop to the lake makes it a scenic choice for cruising, kayaking and scuba diving. Coming out of the beautiful, inviting waters, Bookers can settle into the sands of Kings Beach, where there are volleyball courts, a kids’ playground and picnic tables. In winter or summer, cable cars like the Gunbarrel Express leave from the middle of town and provide the best views of the area’s undeniable star – the lake itself.

When to go?

March and April are when accommodation prices are at their most wallet-friendly. Skies are sunny and clear, perfect for hiking, cycling and exploring the lake from all angles. Bookers visiting in late November might come across the year’s first snowfall – just in time for checking out Heavenly’s famous ski runs.
