When to Go to Lake Tahoe?

Whatever time of the year Lake Tahoe has some great getaway options.  While there are great ski vacation options in winter it is in summer that Lake Tahoe really attracts the crowds looking to escape the cooler temperatures below.  Summer is also a great time to see many of the best tourist attractions which are only open this time of the year.  The Shakespeare Festival is in July

As the seasons roll on and the leaves start to fall the crowds exit and the prices drop until the winter when the skiers arrive.
