Lake Tahoe is named as the largest alpine lake in North America.
This large freshwater lake is sprawled at 6,225 ft across two states of the United States, California, and Nevada.
Even though it is one big lake, it is still divided into two sides, North Lake Tahoe and South Lake Tahoe. While the north side of the lake is much quieter, the south side of the lake witness more hustle-bustle of people.
North Lake Tahoe is ideal for hiking, rock climbing, mountain climbing and all sorts of adventure sports. The nightlife of the north side is not as vibrant as compared to the south, however, some casinos do organize indoor live music.
South Lake Tahoe is the stark opposite to the North part of it. It is boisterous, with lively nightlife, casinos, and adventure sports ready to give the vacationers a good to remember throughout their lifetime. The southside attracts organizers to organize festivals, parties, and various summer and winter activities every year.
If a visitor wishes for some quiet time amidst nature, North Lake is the best place to visit. However, if some wild time with late-night parties is what they need, South Lake is where they should go.
