Tucked on the western banks of Lake Tahoe, the tiny town of Tahoe City in California is a handy stopover for picking up food and supplies. However, this charming town is much more than that. You can sunbathe on Commons Beach and explore the summer farmers’ market that draws people from all around the lake. Lake Tahoe Dam and the Truckee River are great places for a day picnic, and anglers will have a wonderful time fishing at Fanny Bridge. What’s more, the town is known for its excellent waterside dining, especially the outdoor deck at Christy Hill. Christy Hill is a restaurant that offers sweeping views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Staying in Tahoe City is exciting since most tourist spots are close to the lake. You will find many accommodations that are accessible to the town’s attractions. Check out the best Airbnb vacation rentals in Tahoe City, California.
