Lake Tahoe is a great family vacation spot! Once the play ground of the rich and famous, now the area focuses on more middle class travel tastes. Surrounded by the Majestic Sierra Mountains the crystal blue water is something to behold.
The Western Pacific Railroad Museum in Portola, CA is a must see. It has uniqe and interactive railroad exhibts.
You can even drive a train!
Outdoor activies in Lake tahoe abound! Including horseback riding, golf, water sports and great trails for biking!
One of the jewels of Lake Tahoe is Vikingsholm. Vikingsholm is located at the head of Emerald Bay in Lake Tahoe, California. This magnificent “castle” is a unique blend of Nature’s spectacular beauty and man’s architectural ingenuity.
Vikingsholm, situated majestically among towering pines and cedars, was built as a summer home by Mrs. Lora Josephine Knight in 1929.
It is a bit of a hike down to the home. But the journey is filling with breathtaking views of Emerald Bay.
