Car

Since Tahoe's one main road comprises just two-lanes, locals appreciate you maintaining the speed limit, a difficult feat with the jaw-dropping peripheral vistas. Simply pull over if you wish to goggle. The TART, Valley Express, and the free Night Rider make getting around Lake Tahoe possible without having your own car. Boats and water taxis also provide alternatives to wheeled options. Don’t forget to pack chains if you don't have four-wheel drive, they are mandatory for several roads.
