This area in California is an all-season destination. It is skiing in the wintertime that draws visitors and locals alike. North Lake Tahoe extends into two states, has two dozen beaches and many ski resorts. Kings Beach in particular has an interesting story behind its name. Joe King won the town site from George Whittell during a card game played over a century ago.

It is spread-out-the-beach-towels time on the public beach during the summer months. With shops and side-street vendors close by, a day at the beach is far from being boring. Summertime holidays is the time for festivals There are musical events along the North Shore, from blues to jazz, rock to acoustic guitar. To celebrate the beginning of the boating season, the annual Opening Day at the Lake – hosted by Tahoe City on the West Shore -- is held during the Memorial Day weekend. There is something for all ages: tours, barbeques, and scavenger hunts. With temperatures in the 70-degrees Fahrenheit, what could be better than joining in on the deck parties hosted by beachside restaurants? Take along your bikes if you are driving to Lake Tahoe, or rent a bike at one of the shops, because this is also the weekend when all the paved bike trails connecting Tahoe City to Tahoma along the West Shore are open.
