Whether you prefer snow skiing in the winter or water skiing in the summer, North Tahoe and its small town communities make for a tremendous place to live, work and play. Dotted across the mountainside and lakeshores of Tahoe are the quaint communities of Kings Beach, Brockway, Tahoe Vista, Agate Bay, Carnelian Bay, Cedar Flat, Dollar Point, Tahoe City, Sunnyside, Tahoe Park, Talmont Estates, Tahoe Pines, Homewood, Chambers Landing, Tahoma, Meeks Bay, Rubicon, Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, and the Truckee River. Each of these subdivisions offers its own unique blend of culture and beauty to create a destination spot in Northern California unlike any other. From boating to skiing, hiking to biking, gambling to dining, golfing to fishing, North and West Tahoe has it all.
Tahoe City has 72 miles of shoreline, with nearly 24 miles incorporated along Tahoe's North and West Shores. Kings Beach, Carnelian Bay, Lake Forest, Tahoe City, Homewood, and Meeks Bay have easy access to boating docks and boat launches.
Historic Truckee and neighboring Truckee River share a gorgeous downtown area, which offers many small restaurants, cafes, bars and boutiques. This area has managed to retain much of its Old West flavor and historic charm and serves as the gateway to the Sierra Nevada Mountains. In direct contrast are the exciting towns of Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar. These towns have combined the best aspects of rural, rugged mountain living with the ambiance and romantic lure of a mountain ski town filled with lodges and shops making them your one stop destination resorts. Located only a few miles from Tahoe City and Kings Beach, they are close to downtown shopping and amenities. This proximity?combined with the exciting outdoor adventures that await residents and visitors alike on the area's ski slopes?make these subdivisions popular places to live. Those who seek a simpler, quieter way of living tend to buy homes along the West Shore in communities such as Tahoe Pines, Homewood, Chamberlands, Meeks Bay and Rubicon, which are a bit more exclusive.
