Sightseeing Year-Round in Tahoe
One of the many beautiful sights to see as you take the 72 mile drive around Lake Tahoe is Emerald Bay. Climb around the rocks and see impressive waterfalls around the area as well. In the winter, this road is often closed, so if you are going to try to see Emerald Bay this time of year, check that the road is open.
