Lake Tahoe straddles California and Nevada and is the largest Alpine lake in North America. Glenbrook is a tiny community on the east shore of the lake, and also happens to be the oldest settlement there.
Tahoe is an incredible destination with beaches and hiking the most popular draw. Of course, splashing around in the turquoise waters is also a favorite local pastime. For exploring on land, Glenbrook is close to hiking trails with incredible views like that at Cave Rock. The nearby Spooner Lake is also worth a visit, while the beginning of the famous 13-mile Flume Trail is a great spot for fishing.
The east coast of Lake Tahoe is the less developed, which means nature enthusiasts can find secluded beaches hidden away from the crowds here. Heading north of Glenbrook, be sure to soak in the delightful shoreline of Sand Harbor, and heading south, check out the sandy beaches of Zephyr Cove. The best way to get around both places is undoubtedly by kayak, meaning you have access to the secret coves. Elsewhere, there's awesome hiking and climbing at Mt Rose -- a rugged mountain just northeast of the lake.
There's nothing quite like a summer's day on the lake, soaking up the gorgeous scenery.
