NileGuide Expert tip:
Tahoe City lies at the "Y" of Hwy 89 and Hwy. 28.
This little town on the west shore of the lake is home to many shops and popular restaurants, all within walking distance of one another. The only outlet to Lake Tahoe is the spillway underneath Fanny Bridge. The bridge was so named because passersby on the highway saw numerous people constantly leaning over the bridge looking at the hundreds of fish in the waters below. Across the highway you will find miles of hiking and biking trails, and places to rent rafts and float tubes so you can float downstream on the Truckee River.
Tahoe City has several hotels, motels and bed and breakfasts as well as private and shared cabins to rent. The city is close to the Homewood ski area as well as Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley.
