Welcome Tahoe City community members and visitors!

Our beautiful community has unlimited activities for people of all ages and interests.

Tahoe City is perched on the shore of Lake Tahoe at the headwaters of the Truckee River (Lake Tahoe’s only outlet). A mélange of playful year ‘round activities awaits every visitor. Jog/walk/bike/skate the paved trail system along the Lake, across the historic Lake Tahoe dam and down the river. Soak up the summer sun with a host of challenging water sports. Family fun. Outdoor concerts. Movies at the beach. Farmers’ Market. Lakeside camping. Back country hiking and mountain biking. Feed the trout from Fanny Bridge. Ski and Snowboard at world class mountains (minutes away). Experience X-Country Skiing and Snowshoeing along groomed trails above town.  And so much more…

Tahoe City activities revolve around snow and everything one can do in, on or around it. Enjoy four-star dining, homegrown coffee shops, shopping, galleries, and a leisurely stroll through town on the Lake-view boardwalk any time. Once a destination for travelers to and from the Comstock Lode (c.1870’s) that featured a narrow-gauge railway stop and the steamer S.S. Tahoe, Tahoe City’s century-old heritage, historic sites (some claim haunted) and museums provide much history to explore as well.
