This One Destination Has The Absolute Bluest Water In Nevada

Ah, the vibrant blue water of Lake Tahoe. Mark Twain wrote of this “noble” blueness; Scientists are studying it; NASA is monitoring the water with a thermometer and radiometer every two minutes.

This brilliant freshwater lake straddles Nevada and California, offering up 72 miles of shoreline year round with glistening water, framed by alpine-covered mountains. Nearby skiing, dining, lodging and backcountry make this a world-class destination.
