A good travel plan for senior summer ventures in America’s Far West is a visit to beautiful Lake Tahoe. The vast recreation area straddles the borders of Nevada and California, some 60 miles from Reno.


Lake Tahoe is high up in the snow-capped Sierra Mountains , and summer temperatures are crisp and cool. The scenery of pine, aspen and maple forests surrounding the lake is spectacular. For those who prefer staying in the more tranquil California side of the lake, there are many types of accommodations, from luxury hotels to trailer parks to tent campsites. For the visitors looking for Nevada glitz and gambling glamor, that state’s eastern portion of the lake can be all they seek in casino resorts.

Everything a senior vacationer would want can be found in the Lake Tahoe area. From golfing to shopping, boating, fishing, water sports to backpacking to horseback trails, Lake Tahoe has it all. Or if preferred, the visitor doesn’t need to do anything, except sit back on the beach and enjoy the scenery and great summer weather.
