About Tahoe City
When the brief mining boom between 1863 and 1864 in the hills around Squaw went bust, the miners moved down from the mountains and, settling on the shores of Lake Tahoe, founded a community called Tahoe City. About a hundred years later, after the 1960 Olympics in Squaw Valley laid the groundwork for a world class resort, Tahoe City not only benefits from its proximity to that venue, it has since built its own reputation as a mecca for all the water sports one would associate with beautiful Lake Tahoe.
Tahoe City has three great beaches: Tahoe City Commons, Tahoe State Rec., and Lake Forest Beach. If you've got the boat, you can launch it over at the free Coast Guard boat launch. The Truckee River, with its fishing, rafting, kayaking, and more, is less than a mile away. Enjoy a meal in one of Tahoe City's 32 eateries, or take an evening cruise on the lake.
Tahoe City hosts a number of seasonal festivals including, the annual "Heart and Solstice Festival" in June." Come into the fun of Oktoberfest at the "Tahoe City Harvest Festival" in October. And, of course, there's skiing. Squaw Valley is about 8 miles away (about 13 minutes), Alpine and Homewood Resort are just 7 miles. Northstar is a little farther at 15. Sand, snow, or surf, Tahoe City is a great place to stay any time of year!
