Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe offers a marvelous blend of wildlife and wild life. Stand-up comedy clubs, karaoke bars, intimate jazz/blues venues, glitzy nightclubs, hard-rocking pubs, firesides, and hot tubs define après-ski throughout the area. On the Nevada side, celebrities like Jay Leno, Ray Charles, Tony Bennett, and ZZ Top headline casino showrooms
