Regally situated along a gorgeous stretch of Pacific Ocean coast and boasting a mild Southern California climate, San Diego offers surfing, sailing, swimming, fishing and diving throughout the year. Come mid-December, you just might be lucky enough to see one of nature’s most majestic sights – 15,000 peaceful, giant whales journeying from the chilly Alaskan seas to the warmer breeding lagoons of Baja, California.
Surrounded by snow-capped mountains and pine trees, Lake Tahoe is one of the purest lakes in the world and is the second deepest lake in the United States. Ask a local why they live in Tahoe and they’ll smile, and with a small wave towards the lake and the mountains, they’ll say “this is why I live here.” “This” implies the beauty and adventure of Tahoe. A quintessential mountain town and a key player in the Tahoe community, Truckee is just thirteen miles north of the lake and Squaw Valley lies in between. A forested ski community nestled in the Sierra Nevada Range, Squaw Valley is gorgeous and green in the summer, white and sparkling in the winter, and there’s no question as to why the 1960 winter Olympics were held here. Standing tall over the village, Squaw Valley ski area is a constant reminder of the years of fun, laughter, and adventure that have brought Lake Tahoe to life.
