Best locations to watch the fireworks:
• Nevada Beach: Located about two miles east of the Nevada casinos on Elk Point Road, Nevada Beach is the ideal setting for a family barbecue at the beach. A wide, sandy shoreline leads down to the sapphire waters of Lake Tahoe. Charcoal barbecues and picnic tables dot the beach. The view of the fireworks display is one of the best in town.
• Tahoe Queen and M.S. Dixie II: The view from the lake is probably the most spectacular. The Tahoe Queen and M.S. Dixie II: South Shore’s two Mississippi paddlewheelers offer a unique opportunity to view the light show from the water. Both feature live entertainment and fantastic views of the evening’s display.
• Timber Cove Marina: Offering front row seating that fills up fast.
• Bijou Community Park: Set back from the shoreline and boasts a skate park, disc golf course, dog park, golf course, and playground to keep the whole family entertained while holding your ideal viewing spot
• The Tallac Historic Site: Off Emerald Bay Road, has an east-view perspective with nearby Baldwin Beach. For the more adventurous, the top of Mount Tallac offers a bird’s eye view of the fireworks extravaganza, but don’t forget your headlamp for the trek back down.
• Lakeview Commons/El Dorado Beach: Corner of Hwy 50 and Lakeview Ave.
There’s so many more ways you can enjoy this weekend specially when you get to spend time with friends and family, have a nice BBQ, go to the lake and have a blast! Have a wonderful holiday!!
