Home to the most popular beach at the Lake, Sand Harbor
, where the Shakespeare Festival
draws in visitors far and wide in July and August, the East Shore is Tahoe's relaxation destination. But if you seek fun, the East Shore also touts the best place for paddling on the Lake.
If you are looking to keep it cheap, the East Shore has some of the best summer hangouts that won't break the bank. Start with a day of sunning on "the rocks". These areas are within the Tahoe State Park, and if you can find parking on the side of the road, you can enjoy the lake without having to pay for parking or park entrance fees which are typical of Tahoe beaches.
