I am sitting here at Sand Harbor on Lake Tahoe and this beach setting is one the best I have seen throughout my travels. It is absolutely incredible as the beach is lined with granite boulder fields that invite you to want jump into the deep blue water.
With the air temperature right around 80 and a water temp of 66, it is refreshing to jump into the lake. Or you can paddle board and explore shoreline and offshore boulders.
Put Lake Tahoe on your list of places to go as there great activities awaiting you. There is mountain biking, hiking, camping, kayaking and so many more.
Yes, during peak summer season it can get crowded, but the surrounding areas within an hours drive have noticeably less adventurers.
