As one of the top places in the United States to get married, Lake Tahoe has also become one of the most romantic places in the country. This is the place to pop the question or just have a romantic weekend away...especially if you love the outdoors. Most of the activities on this 10Best list are located outside, but you can spend that time either in the air parasailing over the North Shore, in some hot water at Sierra Hot Springs or David Walley's Hot Springs, on a boat on the lake or watching the works of Shakespeare while the sun sets over the water. If you want to be inside, visit the beautiful Thunderbird Lodge on the North Shore for a public or private event in the lodge or on their yacht.
If you and your partner are hikers, visit the Emerald Bay area (one of the most visited places on the lake) and hike either down to Vikingsholm Castle or up into Desolation Wilderness. If you want to just sit on a beach and relax with a picnic and bottle of wine, check out Sand Harbor all times of the year. The beach is especially nice in the fall and winter when the summer crowds are gone and you can spend some time alone. For the ultimate in romance, take to the skies with a Fly Together package from Hang Gliding Tahoe.
