Travel to Lake Tahoe in Nevada and California – Episode 298

categories: USA Travel


The Amateur Traveler talks to Bethany of the Nevada Tourism Bureau about Lake Tahoe.

Lake Tahoe is a high elevation alpine lake on the border of California and Nevada. It is surrounded by 18 ski areas so it is a popular winter destination. In the winter it is also a great place for backcountry hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.

In the Summer, Tahoe is a popular area for hiking, fishing, and outdoor activities. But, there is another side to Tahoe which is the casinos, restaurants, and entertainment of Nevada’s South Tahoe.

Hi Chris, I always get a little concerned when a representative from a tourist board is interviewed about a destinantion. However, I felt Bethany gave an honest account of the area. I’ve added the link to The Bloggers Guide To The World.

Kind regards, Si



Excited to explore both sides of Lake Tahoe, from the serene beaches in California to the vibrant casinos in Nevada. A perfect blend of relaxation and excitement awaits!
