Things To Do Near Tahoe City in Lake Tahoe

Tahoe City is a charming community on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe. Not only is it a great place as a home base with numerous restaurants, hotels and shopping, but access to the lake is just a short walk away.

Tahoe City is also close to a lot of the local ski resorts including Granlibakken, Alpine Meadows, Homewood, Northstar-at-Tahoe and Squaw Valley USA. Some of the best things to do in Tahoe City include walking along the Tahoe City Boardwalk, visiting Commons Beach and doing some shopping at the Cobblestone Center or the Boatworks Mall.

Tahoe City is also a great place to grab some food or coffee. Front Street Station's pizza, the Fire Sign Café's breakfasts and the coffee and ice cream at Gear & Grinds are popular.

For the nature and history lovers, Tahoe City is also home to the Gatekeeper Museum and the North Lake Tahoe Historical Society. The Truckee River also gets its long start down to Pyramid Lake from Tahoe City and you can view the river and the local spawning salmon at the Fanny Bridge, named because so many people like to lean over the bridge to watch the fish. At the beginning of the river, visitors during the summer and fall might catch a glimpse of a local bear catching his own dinner.
