Arguably one of the most beautiful snowy landscapes you can see so close to California, Lake Tahoe is one of my favorite places to go for some winter fun when I'm not going abroad.
It is a major tourist attraction both in Nevada and California, since it sits right in the border of the two. It is home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and if you cross the street into Nevada you can enjoy some casino fun, Vegas style.
The views are breathtaking everywhere you go, plus skiing and snowboarding is a pretty good workout and so much fun!
