What an incredible place! Unfortunately the public toilet facilities were beyond disgusting! There was no toilet paper, the floors were flooded and the pit-toilets were so full, people had used the floor as a toilet! Shocking to experience especially because it’s a popular tourist area-...More

Lake Tahoe is breathtakingly beautiful! We drove around the whole lake and it took 4.5 hours which included stops and sightseeing. Must see if you’re in the area.

I recommend Everyone to go Lake Tahoe, I went in the summer and the view is spectacular. Also I recommend everyone to drive all around Lake Tahoe , it's around 70 miles, but is worthy to see it.
