Dollar Point was actually a track of land originally slated for an observatory because of its expansive views. The amenities, proximity to Lake Tahoe and luxury homes of Dollar Point make it a much sought after neighborhood. Located off Highway 28 between Tahoe City and Cedar Flat, this large development is across Highway 28 from the Highlands and the open space available there. During summer, this area offers excellent mountain biking and hiking.
