Adventure and Sierra Mountains Scenic Drive

Lake Tahoe is a stunning alpine lake straddling the California-Nevada border in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Known for its crystal-clear blue waters and picturesque surroundings, it’s a popular year-round destination for outdoor enthusiasts. The lake, formed about two million years ago, is the second-deepest in the United States, reaching depths of 1,645 feet.

Visitors to Lake Tahoe can enjoy a wide range of activities across seasons. Summer brings opportunities for swimming, hiking, and water sports, while winter transforms the area into a haven for skiers and snowboarders. The lake’s shores are dotted with beaches, coves, and several world-class ski resorts, catering to diverse recreational interests.

One notable way to experience Lake Tahoe is aboard the Dixie II, a paddle wheeler tour boat. This vessel offers scenic cruises on the lake, allowing passengers to admire the surrounding mountains and shoreline from a unique vantage point. The Dixie II typically provides narrated tours, sharing information about Lake Tahoe’s history, geology, and ecology as it navigates the pristine waters. These boat tours offer a relaxing way to take in the lake’s beauty and learn about its significance to the region.
