Lake Tahoe largest alpine lake in North America + Casinos – Lake Tahoe is a real place of beauty, it’s been the haunt of the rich and famous for many many years much due to it’s beauty oh and of course the casinos, resorts and life that has green along some of it’s shores.
Amazingly clear water, mountains on all sides and being the largest Alpine Lake in North America make this beauty sport a real draw not just for Americans but tourists from all over the world. It sits on the California / Nevada border. It’s famed for summer and winter sports meaning it’s got something for everyone and is worth a visit all year round.
So what about these casinos?
Well some see them as a stain on the beauty but the Nevada side of the lake is quite a happening place. Nevada legalized gambling in 1931 but one of the most well known casinos had already been there for years (I am guessing it was operating illegally?). In the late 60s a high rise hotel joined the casino and the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and all those guys owned property and investments in the area.
Of course it grew, it became a hotel and casino heaven and is a destination for those wanting that kind of thing along with the beauty of the lake.
Have you ever been to Tahoe? And if so what side of the lake did you go and in what season?
