Fisherman's Wharf. Perfect for some kids' activities and fresh seafood, ranging from crabs to the catch of the day.
North Beach. Known as the "Little Italy" district, we recommend a dinner here.
Chinatown and Japantown. These neighborhoods boast local and authentic spots to shop and dine.
Financial District. A bustling metropolis of businessmen during the day and a host of restaurants at night.

It is a very serene moment, followed up by a reassuring feeling of clarity.

Forecasting Your Tahoe Vacation
The summer season in Lake Tahoe goes from June 1st to Sep 15th and is high season.
During Summer Lake Tahoe is packed, all the parks, golf courses, hiking and biking trails are open so expect crowds everywhere you go, we recommend having reservations at restaurants on weekends. Summer is also the time when you’ll see wedding parties on the lake taking pictures or having a ceremony on a beach. June is regularly calm, the water temperature is not warm enough for swimming (at least not for everyone) so it’s a great time to visit if you don’t enjoy crowds, all the other activities are available. Starting 4th of July all the way till Labor Day Lake Tahoe and Truckee is packed with tourists, there are people sailing, boating, sunbathing, swimming, biking, hiking, tubing, kayaking every day of the week. Right after Labor Day till Sep 15th would be a great time to enjoy the warm water and a quiet Lake Tahoe, so the decision is yours.
