So glad you’re here! Here are eight insider tips to help you do everything you want to do in Tahoe:
- DRINK TAHOE TAP™
No need to buy bottled water. Tahoe Tap is the world’s best. Literally. We win awards. Fill and refill your reusable bottles all day.
- BE #1 AT PICKING UP #2
If it’s your dog, then it’s your doody. If left behind, your cute pet’s waste drains into the lake and grows horrible monsters.
- NO ONE WANTS TO SEE YOUR DIRTY BUTT
Cigarettes leach toxic chemicals into Tahoe. Please keep your butts from touching the ground.
- TRASH BELONGS IN THE CAN
What happens in Tahoe shouldn’t stay in Tahoe. Wherever you are, trash or recycling cans are never far.
- YOU GONNA EAT THAT?
Human food hurts wildlife. Protect our wild animals by locking trash in bear-proof bins.
- SMILE FOR MILES
These are nice trails. Blaze a trail of kindness with other hikers, bikers, dogs, and horses.
- PRACTICE SAFE CAMPING
If you loved your campfire, give it a big wet one. No fire is out until fully extinguished with water.
- LOOK WHAT THE CRAFT DRAGGED IN
Boat inspections aren’t just fun, they’re mandatory. Bring your boat clean, drained, and dry.
