Tahoe City is your gateway to Lake Tahoe. Perched lakeside on the North Shore, at the head of the Truckee River, your slice of Tahoe City real estate provides the ideal mix of mountain retreat, creature comforts, family fun, and everyday needs.
Want to get on the lake? Boaters enjoy the full-service offerings of the Tahoe City Marina, and kayakers, paddleboarders, and jet skiers can launch from several area beaches. Or go tubing down the Truckee River: it’s always a great time. Want to hit the trails? Abundant options are available for knobby two-wheeled adventures or your hiking pleasure: majestic views await.
When the snow falls, Tahoe City is a winter wonderland. A multitude of downhill ski resorts are a short drive away, and Tahoe XC Ski Area offers trails for classic cross-country and skate skiing. In town, the Tahoe City Winter Park features sledding, ice skating, and short cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails.
Stroll through Tahoe City’s walkable downtown and enjoy boutique shopping and dining for all palates and occasions. Take in a film or live performance at Tahoe Art Haus and Cinema, and check the community calendar for events like the free downtown summertime Concerts at Commons Beach and SnowFest, a ten-day annual spring event since 1982.
Tahoe City is located at the intersection of Lake Tahoe’s West and North Shores, with Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley Ski Resort just down the hill, on the way to nearby Truckee. Head further along the North Shore to access local communities including Carnelian Bay, Tahoe Vista, and Kings Beach. Or explore the quieter West Shore and the towns of Homewood and Tahoma.
