Kings Beach is the heart of summer fun in North Lake Tahoe and just one stop at its impressive beach will tell you why. Farmers markets and weekend craft fairs provide lots of summer fun and activities. Known as North Shore’s banana belt, the area falls in the sun’s path from early morning into the evening during summer. Restaurants are plentiful here as well. During the winter ski season, Kings Beach is a perfect base camp and is located within 20 minutes of world-class ski resorts like Northstar, Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley.
