South Lake Tahoe 

This section of the Lake is one of the not so best kept secrets.  South Shore has something for everyone from shopping, gambling, sports, dining, entertainment, and just breathing the clear mountain air.  Trails into Desolation Wilderness offer easy access for back country enthusiasts, bicycle paths trail along beach fronts and coming soon, into downtown areas, several marinas offer boat storage and rentals, and several beaches such as Baldwin Beach, Pope Beach, and Nevada Beach have wide expanses of sand for those lazy summer days.  Winter months offer two ski areas:  Heavenly Valley and Sierra at Tahoe.  

From lakefront properties to those Tahoe cabins found in wooded areas or situated along the Truckee River, there is quite a selection of properties.  Tahoe Keys offers homes with boat docks in the back yard.  Around Heavenly Valley, you can find properties that are almost ski in and ski out.
