Lake Tahoe, Nevada

Welcome to the Nevada side of Tahoe

Bustling outdoor activity meets serene dining and shopping in this western Nevada city with a hot nightlife
Tahoe is home to every outdoor activity you could wish for. Thanks to four distinct seasons, residents can enjoy every weekend outside. If you like hiking, hunting, cycling, or motorsports, Tahoe has them. If you enjoy swimming, boating, wakeboarding, and waterskiing, pop over to Lake Tahoe.

Local Lifestyle

Tahoe is beloved by outdoorsy, active families, and artists. Anytime you need some inspiration, simply head out of town for truly stunning views and a wide-open sky.

Amateur astronomers love Tahoe, too. Once you get away from the city glow, the sky is so clear and clean you can see the Milky Way and even satellites crossing the sky almost every night. Grab your telescope and head out for a quiet night under the stars.

But the urban excitement may be Tahoe's biggest draw. If you like dancing, nightclubs, and a good pub crawl, you'll be right at home. When locals are in the mood for a fun night of dancing and drinking, they head to Stateline for heart-pounding nightclubs like Peek and the Opal Lounge.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping 

While the overall appeal of Tahoe is fun and adventurous, the town is also home to sophisticated dining experiences. At Edgewood Restaurant, guests appreciate New American cuisine and jaw-dropping scenic views of the lake. They're especially gorgeous on a rare stormy day. Lone Eagle Grill is another upscale dining choice with breathtaking lake views and an upscale American menu.

Ciera Steak & Chophouse is an elevated take on a traditional American steakhouse. Beyond premium cuts and steaks, they offer a delightful vegetarian menu and your choice of Californian and European wines.

For a more laid-back experience, choose Austin's Restaurant. This jeans-and-T-shirt-friendly restaurant serves classic burgers and milkshakes you’ll crave after a day on the lake.

On the entertainment side, legal gaming is available everywhere in Tahoe. Casinos are the busiest on the weekends, and Friday and Saturday nights are the most exciting.

Things to Do 

Tahoe offers world-class skiing at Diamond Peak Ski Resort and Mt. Rose during the colder months. During the summer, residents enjoy a thrilling Independence Day celebration, Nevada Beach, and the Lake Tahoe Marathon.

Another big draw is the Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena in Stateline. This outdoor venue is operated by Ceasar's, so you know the experience will always be up-to-par. Country music fans enjoy live shows from the biggest names in the genre, like Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban.
