North Lake's easygoing communities hem Lake Tahoe’s crystalline shoreline from Tahoma to Incline Village. In the 60s, pop culture icons, presidents, and famous mobsters graced the area's stages, casinos, and beaches. Today's venues keep the music alive, and glamorous VIPs continue North Lake's tradition as a serene celebrity getaway. Small town characters add color to the area’s rich and famous lifestyle and offer quirky alternatives to South Tahoe’s flashy parties.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
