Lake Tahoe is one of the most beautiful destinations you can travel to in the United States. This gorgeous area is known for its crystal clear, blue water and the mountains that surround it. Many people enjoy visiting Lake Tahoe to kayak, swim, or just take in the beautiful scenery. But that’s not all you can do! There are also lots of great shopping centers and restaurants in the area, as well as skiing in the winter. Whatever fun activities you plan on doing once you get to Lake Tahoe, it’ll be the time of your life! Staying in an Airbnb while visiting Lake Tahoe is the perfect way to feel at home and to feel like a local. Keep reading to see a list of the best Airbnbs in Lake Tahoe!
How to Get to Lake Tahoe
The easiest way to get to Lake Tahoe is to fly into the Reno–Tahoe International Airport (airport code: RNO), which is about a 45-minute drive to Lake Tahoe, depending on the area you’re staying in. You can easily get a taxi or Uber to your Airbnb in Lake Tahoe if you don’t have a car with you for your stay.
How to Get Around Lake Tahoe
With more than 70 miles along the shoreline of Lake Tahoe, you’re looking at quite a struggle to get around if you don’t have a car. Things are so spread out that public transportation just isn’t a viable option. If you’re visiting Lake Tahoe on a USA road trip, you’ll already be set with a car.
If you’re flying in, you’ll want to pick up a rental car at the Reno Airport once you arrive. I highly recommend Hertz as they have great customer service and a huge selection of cars. However, if you’re just looking for the best price, check out a website like RentalCars for great deals.
