Surrounded by mountains and national forests, the city of South Lake Tahoe is a popular tourist destination. This 'resort' town gains visitors during every season. In warmer months, you'll find people camping, mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking, and enjoying things like scuba diving. When the winter comes, skiing takes over as the activity of choice. In short, there's always something fun to do for the adrenaline junkie in all of us. This is especially true for the Tahoe Keys neighborhood. This lake-side paradise is a jewel in South Lake Tahoe. On-site amenities keep you pampered and entertained within the neighborhood and yet a number of exciting outdoor activities and businesses are all nearby as well.It's not all fun and games, however. Residents of Tahoe Keys are also a short drive of 10 minutes or less from post offices and grocery stores, making errands as breezy as an evening watching the sunset on a porch.
You'll need to use extra caution if you choose to take your pet for an evening or night walk as street lights are few and far between. There are also a number of cul-de-sacs in this neighborhood, meaning your chances of finding a dead end are high. Tahoe Keys homes line the waterways, so while you're walking right beside veins and little lagoons of Lake Tahoe, your chances for a view are low as they'll be blocked by houses and condos.
If you are looking for a local spot for a walk that will have views of the water, there are plenty of nearby parks and beaches for you and Fido to enjoy.
Nearby Keys and Pope beaches are beautiful, but your pet is only allowed there if they are a certified service dog. Try Kiva Beach instead! An even closer option than Bijou's Dog Run, Kiva Beach is a local favorite for dog-owners and their canine companions. This waterfront public space offers free parking, picnic tables, and a scenic view. Water dogs rejoice at this off-the-beaten-path wonderland.
