Lake Tahoe

Just 60 miles from Reno, Nevada, and around 180 miles from San Francisco, California, Lake Tahoe's unique combination of mountain air, scenery and activities makes for a wonderful romantic getaway. Head to the north shore if you're seeking a more serene environment and a slower pace. Here you’ll find romantic studio cabins and quaint little roadside taverns. However, if you equate romance with glitz and glamour, then head to the bright lights of the casinos and resorts on the south shore. Take a leisurely drive and spend a day circling the amazing alpine lake or take a romantic kayak tour or a lake cruise. Ski, toboggan or take a sleigh ride in the winter, or sail, water ski, and even parasail in the warmer weather, although beware of the frigid water temperatures in the lake throughout the year. Cap off your romantic getaway with a ride on an aerial tram to really appreciate the stunning scenery.
