During a road trip to Lake Tahoe, the lake itself is usually the ultimate destination. However, no matter what direction you come from, there are a multitude of other adventures to be had in the Sierra Nevada throughout the year.
Reno residents have long experienced the train of art cars and their Burner inhabitants that stream through the city en route to Burning Man in northern Nevada each August, leaving a trail of dust behind them on their way back out.

Are you planning a spring or summer wedding in Lake Tahoe? Wedding receptions at the lake can be held in many places including ski resorts, mountain tops, and private beaches, but you might want a comfortable and protected location right on the water to wine and dine with your guests without worrying about what the weather might bring. These five restaurants around the lake are either located right on the water or just a toss of the bouquet from the water's edge.
