360° VR Panoramas of Lake Tahoe, Northern Sierra, and the Gold Country
West Shore of Lake Tahoe
Tahoe City to Emerald Bay, California

The west shore of Lake Tahoe is developed almost continuously from the Truckee River outlet to Rubicon Bay, with summer cabins and year-around homes ranging from simple to palatial. Access to the lake is blocked by private property for long stretches, though there are an increasing number of public parks and lake access points.
