Lake Tahoe has repeatedly been voted one of the top places for a romantic getaway. It's also one of the best places to pop the questionâ€“with a view of the big, blue lake in the distance. Most of the activities on this 10Best list are located outside and some activities are seasonal, but you can choose between parasailing over the North Shore or watching the works of Shakespeare while the sun sets over the West Shore.
If you and your partner are hikers, visit the Emerald Bay area (one of the most picturesque 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, check out the area's natural hot springsâ€“including the clothing optional Sierra Hot Springs.
