A majestic place like Lake Tahoe is bound to have some gorgeous areas. Vacationers might want to investigate these five locations:

Diamond Peak, with its sweeping views of the valley, is the local ski hill and has a view that is a must-see no matter what time of year. The area is one of the wealthiest in Tahoe, with a number of condos and apartments mixed among million-dollar mansions. The village still has a strong community feeling.
The Meeks Bay shoreline is popular for its beautiful scenery, sprawling clean beaches and easy access. The area offers a high concentration of recreation opportunities including camping, swimming, biking, boating and hiking into the nearby Desolation Wilderness. Meeks Bay Beach is located on National Forest land. When it comes to South Lake Tahoe luxury vacation rentals, there is none more stunning than Villa Rockhaven. This waterfront home, amidst a treed landscape, offers panoramic vistas across Lake Tahoe. The villa is a true luxury mountain retreat with all the amenities including a private dock, elevator, cinema room, gym and Jacuzzi, and has room for up to 16 guests.
With a population of more than 34,000, South Lake Tahoe is the largest place on the lake. Major casinos such as MontBleu, Harvey's and Harrah's sit on the border, making it a bustling town in every season. There are plenty of good places to shop, eat and play. South Lake is spread over 16 miles, with Heavenly Resort as the outstanding backdrop. Villa Harrah is one of the most amazing South Lake Tahoe villas imaginable. Sitting right on the waterfront, the villa has its own private beach, and a stunning view of the mountains. Luxury travelers will live in comfort with every amenity such as a sauna, spa lounge, wine cellar, boat dock, outdoor dining area and pool.
This quaint, bustling little town is awash in lovely bike paths and recently updated store fronts. It’s close to many area tourist attractions and is the easiest place from which to access the lake. It’s understandable why Tahoe City’s laid-back vibe attracts those who open yoga studios, coffee shops and boutiques which are mainly on the main drag. Lit up at night, the town looks like a picture out of a storybook, with the ambiance of a European village.
Truckee is a cute country-style mountain town that exudes historical preservation combined with the new. The downtown area is the main hangout spot, lined with brick buildings, a train station and the Truckee River running through it. Visitors who have the yearning to shop and to enjoy a delicious dinner afterwards, should head to the downtown core. During summer events the street is closed down and local vendors set up shop selling art, jewelry, clothing and homemade goods.
After spending all that time outdoors, hungry travelers may want to enjoy an evening out away from their Lake Tahoe villa rental. These five fine dining establishments are sure to please any discerning palate:

When not flying down the slopes or sunning on the beach, visitors may want to soak up some culture. The three venues here are a mix of history, play and art:
The Gatekeeper’s Museum is located in William B. Layton Park, a three-acre site managed by the North Lake Tahoe Historical Society. The museum is in a cabin listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the oldest log structure remaining in the North Lake Tahoe area. It was built in 1908 by Robert Montgomery Watson, Tahoe City's first constable, and his youngest son, Robert Howard Watson. The museum has a number of exhibits that tell the history of the area. Among the exhibits are those dedicated to Native American baskets, and bears.
Parents who have their children with them on holiday might want to spend some time at the KidZone Museum where kids are inspired to learn through creative play and discovery. Children are encouraged to explore the exhibits curated to appeal to their natural curiosity and creativity. The museum is ideal for children under the age of 12.
The museum was co-founded in 1931 by Dr. James Church, an early climate scientist, humanist, and art lover. The current four-level, 70,000-square-foot building is inspired by geological formations in northern Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, and serves as a visual metaphor for the institution’s scholarly focus on art and the environment. After browsing through the exhibits, visitors can shop from an expansive selection of design-focused products and artisan pieces to find the perfect piece to take home.
