The north end of Lake Tahoe in California is ideal for vacationers of all ages; there really is something for everyone and if you simply want to bask in the sunshine on a beautiful beach, you are definitely headed to the right place. Before you choose from the range of rentals in the area, discover Kings Beach and Carnelian Bay, two beautiful and scenic California destinations. Whatever you want from your vacation, whether it is a relaxing low-key break with your loved one or a fun-filled, action-packed stay with your family or friends — you can have it all.
Golf is a priority for many visitors to California, and Kings Beach is no exception. Old Brockway Golf Course was built in 1924 and is a 9-hole, medium-length layout course with 3 sets of tee-boxes and attractive scenery to admire as you make your way around the course. With practice facilities and a restaurant and licensed bar, this course is ideal for both beginner and experienced golfers alike. If you want to involve your whole family in a game of golf, go for the vintage-style miniature golf course instead.
Inject some fun into your trip and learn about a local legend by visiting the Tahoe Tessie’s Lake Tahoe Monster Museum. Apparently, Tessie — possibly a distant cousin of the famous Loch Ness monster (Nessie) — inhabits the waters of Lake Tahoe. Entry to the museum is free, and whether you believe the allegations that Tessie exists, it is an enjoyable family day out and a great chance to pick up some fun souvenirs to remind you of your trip.
Several small beaches make up the main stretch of coastline, including Coon Street Beach, a small but busy beach that is popular with dog owners as it is completely dog-friendly. Coon Street also has picnic tables and barbecue facilities if you want to stop and enjoy some food before you stroll back to your Kings Beach vacation home.
Carnelian Bay is a great destination for a vacation exploring Lake Tahoe, California-North America’s largest alpine lake. With the sun shining 274 days of the year, and the lake’s water 99.7% clear (around the same as distilled water). Given the weather, there is no shortage of outdoor activities to enjoy in the area. Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley and Northstar are all easily accessible, each one providing top-class downhill skiing and snowboarding opportunities. Boating is another popular pastime, from fishing and sailing to canoeing and kayaking. Hiking, biking and horseback riding are also widely available. Local golf courses include Old Brockway, an attractive 9-hole course; Coyote Moon, an 18-hole championship course designed by Brad Bell; and Northstar at Tahoe, a NCGA-rated par 72 course that has a resident PGA professional to offer assistance. Carnelian Bay rentals offer easy access to all of these great outdoor activities.
The Bay itself has two recently restored public beaches with designated areas for picnics and barbecues, a scenic lakeside path and a public pier. Set on the north shore of Lake Tahoe, this resort is perfect for vacationers of all ages and interests, from a group of friends who want to hit the slopes of Alpine Meadows, to a family who want to do a bit of everything, to the newlyweds on their honeymoon who want to relax and enjoy the sunshine. Browsing a variety of Carnelian Bay rentals is the best way to find the best vacation accommodation to suit your specific needs. All properties come fully equipped with all modern conveniences and many have additional features to add to your enjoyment of your trip, such as a hot tub, fenced back yard and the use of a private driver.
