Small town. Beautiful, romantic. Lots of restaurant choices. Beautiful view of the snowy hills. Many ski resorts. Very nice residents. Excellent markets with very helpful staff. Well worth a visit.

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.
