North Lake Tahoe is composed of Tahoe City, Kings Beach, and the several small communities that sit on Lake Tahoe’s North Shore, including Dollar Point, Carnelian Bay, Cedar Flat, and Tahoe Vista. Both Tahoe City and Kings Beach have popular downtown areas with shops, restaurants, and community beaches. Tahoe City, which calls itself “the heart and soul of Lake Tahoe,” sits above Commons Beach, home to a popular playground and the Foothills Farmers Market in the summer.
Tahoe City and Kings Beach vacation rentals put you at the edge of Lake Tahoe’s North Shore. You are within minutes of recreational activities and shopping and dining. The world class ski resorts of Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Northstar are all within a 10-15 minute drive.
