Kings Beach at North Lake Tahoe, California

Kings Beach, North Lake Tahoe

North Lake Tahoe, California is known for winter sports, but in the summer offers just as much fun. For those who travel when school is out, the area is a real gem. map

Summer in North Lake Tahoe

North Lake Boulevard, the main road along the water's edge between Tahoe City and Incline Village, offers a fabulous public beach with a small pier. Kings Beach is long and sandy, with boat rentals, restaurants and boutique shops catering to visitors. The water of Lake Tahoe comes from snowmelt, making the lake frigid in its center but warm at the shore where the sun can more easily penetrate. Snow capped mountain peaks surround Lake Tahoe, providing a stunning contrast to families frolicking in their bathing suits.

Horseback riding and golfing replace skiing and snowboarding during summer months, allowing resorts to open year-round. For golfers, there are several world-class courses to choose from in North Lake Tahoe, including Incline Village and Tahoe City Golf Course.
