South Lake Tahoe Featured in Outside
Lake Tahoe, both South Shore California and Nevada, were featured in the March issue of Outside Magazine. Outside is a monthly publication popular amongst outdoor recreation enthusiasts (as well as dreamers) and focuses on fitness, lifestyles and adventures. On the cover of the March, 2010 issue, a teaser promo highlighted an inside article focusing on recommended locations in which to invest during this market downturn. Lake Tahoe, specifically the South shore, received a good deal of attention within that article.
Praise such as, “ Tahoe offers a rare combination of omnipresent sunshine (three out of four days) and some of the nation’s deepest annual snowfalls (40-plus feet)” were listed as well as comments on the exceptional mountain biking and hiking opportunities. The article went on to discuss the redevelopment of the area and starting home prices. They stated that one could find an entry level home on the California side under $200,000 with the Nevada side being approximately 25% higher. They also pointed out the current great values within the Tahoe Keys of which we agree.
The magazine also had a fun quiz to help one decide whether or not they should realistically consider themselves a second home owner and in which areas a buyer should be wise. We recommend this article for second home buyers considering the Tahoe area.
Orbitz, an international travel company also gave Lake Tahoe recent high praise. In February, 2010, they claimed that Lake Tahoe was ranked as the number one ski destination in the world. In fact, this was the third year in a row that Lake Tahoe received this status.
Those of us that live here, know that we are pretty lucky souls. Wages may be lower, jobs a bit harder to secure and museums harder to find. Never-the-less, we wake up and fall asleep to Mother Nature’s glory – never knowing what tomorrow (or the next hour) may bring. It’s all an adventure. This is certainly “bringing the good life home” and fun to see a national magazine take notice.
