By Shanie Matthews | Tuesday, August 22, 2023

Lake Tahoe, the jewel of the Sierra Nevada, has a wide range of serene landscapes just waiting to be explored. Many Lake Tahoe businesses offer one-of-a-kind encounters that allow visitors to connect, reset and retreat in this pristine beauty. In this blog I offer a look at two businesses that are redefining the Lake Tahoe experience.
