It's hard to believe but Tahoe City is celebrating 150 years this summer as an established town in Northern California!
As a part of the town's anniversary, The Tahoe City Waterfront Tour was formed by the North Lake Tahoe Historical Society to share Tahoe City's unique history. So what exactly will this tour consist of? Event guests will travel on foot for about 3/4 mile on a flat bike/multi-use trail to learn all about the Truckee River Dam (above photo), water rights, water clarity, rafting, historic sailing vessels, motor boat racing, Commons Beach, native fish, and key landmarks in Tahoe City-restaurants, places to visit/things to do from long time local, Karen Willcuts.
Although this event is FREE and open to the public, the North lake Tahoe Historical Society will accept $5 donations that will also cover your admission to the Gatekeeper's Museum for the day.
