Located on the shores of Lake Tahoe where Highway 28 connects with Highway 267 directly from Interstate 80, Kings Beach is a vibrant and eclectic community. The main town of Kings Beach has a long strip of shops, restaurants and beach activities. Because of its southern exposure, this is considered another banana belt of Tahoe. The neighborhoods consist of older and newer structures side by side. Close proximity to beach and water sports also makes this area an ideal getaway home. Diamond Peak, Mount Rose and Northstar Ski Resorts are a close drive. Kings Beach is also close to the Nevada casinos and late night spots of Nevada. Recent redevelopment, including luxury condominiums located directly on the beach, is increasing the desirability of this convenient Tahoe town.
Tahoe Vista maintains the old world charm of the long ago days of Tahoe. The homes in this neighborhood meander upward, many offering lake views on its various crests. Some neighborhoods are adjacent to the cross country skiing trails, hiking, tennis courts and sports fields of the nearby park. This is another area of entry level homes mixed in with luxury properties.
