Fire up the SUV and Come to Lake Tahoe
The Drive is Easy and Scenic
Regardless of where you’re driving from it’s easy to find a route on a major highway to Lake Tahoe and the last hour(s) of the journey are incredibly scenic mountain vistas. Coming from L.A. via Hwy 395 travels along the granite peaks of the Eastern Sierra once you reach Lone Pine. The drive from Reno is only an hour and traverses the Kit Carson Range. The last hour of the drive from the Bay Area climbs into the Sierra Nevada beginning at Placerville.
