Where to Stay in Lake Tahoe – Options Abound
All over Lake Tahoe (North, South, East, West), the summer is warming up. As travelers near and far gear up to visit the magnificent mountain lake, the local businesses are also preparing for what is their most important season of the year.
While there are a lucky few who own a lakefront home with a boat dock and pretty much never need to leave, the rest of us have choices to make on where to stay. Outside of a day trip for those living nearby, most have to choose between staying at a hotel, rent a place, or visit an area campground. Each have benefits and much of the decision will be dictated by your individual circumstance.
There are numerous options for hotels in the area. From the more budget friendly for a longer stay to the high end luxury experience and everything in between.
BEST for short stays or small groups as they are some of the most convenient options. Usually more available to book on short notice, no minimum stays, and no cleaning fees. From classic budget friendly cabins, to smaller hotel/casinos and on up to high end hotels and casinos there are numerous options.
From international companies such as AirBNB, VRBO and Homeaway to numerous local vacation rental options, there are some incredible options.
Whether a condo in one of the major resorts such as Heavenly, Squaw Valley, or Northstar with all the amenities, to independent quality budget options, these can be great options for smaller groups.
For families and larger groups, options abound. If money is not an issue, then there are some amazing lakefront options. However, for a group there are some great options to be had that are relatively affordable, offer ample space, and are relatively easy access to many of the Lake Tahoe recreational options.

Virtual reality has a place in the tourism industry; stakeholders around the world are realizing this fact and integrating it into their customers’ purchasing experience. In this way, the Australian Tourism Office is offering a 360° video via its YouTube channel allowing people to take a virtual tour of the country and New Caledonia has set up a web-based virtual game.
As far as travel agencies are concerned, since 2016, Cub Med has been offering the possibility of watching 360° videos of its destinations and “Prêt à Partir” is even testing virtual reality headsets at the moment.
The e-commerce giant Expedia, meanwhile, has launched many initiatives, by partnering with various companies, including virtual tours of hotels via an app, a 360° video (Virtual Flam) and even a virtual visit of San Antonio via a 360° video.
Virtual reality in tourism is becoming more and more common and each VR solution has a specific role based on its intended end-use. In order to allow their clients to choose a hotel based on virtual reality, Mariott is offering The Teleporter, 360° videos available on YouTube, Google Earth VR as well as Samsung Travrer, a virtual tourism platform first introduced at MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2017.
Amadeus has developed a futuristic search and reservations system based on VR via its Navitaire subsidiary. Austrian Airlines allows clients to get a 360° glimpse of the interior of its aircraft thanks to myPanorama and the SNCF is currently developing a Proof of Concept VR application to help travelers prepare their journeys.
The virtual reality and 360° videos are being used in the tourism industry at every stage – from inspiration to final purchase. At the same time, VR is becoming an increasingly prevalent part of actual travel – as entertainment (example: SkyLights).
While virtual reality in tourism has become an important part of the marketing strategy of many brands, some companies are still investing in the “real” by mixing it with virtual reality (example: King of Vikings). VR still has a lot of untapped potential for promoting and enriching the customer experience.

El Tatio is ringed by volcanoes and fed by over 80 gurgling geysers and a hundred gassy fumaroles. Contrary to popular opinion it is not the world’s largest geyser field, but the third largest. The best time to see the geysers is 06:00, so make sure you wipe the sleep from your eyes if you want experience the awesome spectacle. Check it the most amazing Oasis in the dessert.
Watch your step – in some places, visitors have fallen through the thin crust into underlying pools of scalding water and suffered severe burns. Dress in layers: it’s toe-numbingly cold at sunbreak but you’ll bake in the van on the way back down.
