Lake Tahoe is surrounded by towering Sierra Nevada mountains with a wide array of scenic outlooks and hiking trails. These are some of the best places for stargazing experiences.

  • The historic Stateline Fire Lookout in Kings Beach is another fantastic gazing location. This high-altitude spot towers above Tahoe Biltmore and offers easily accessible views of North Lake Tahoe.
