Kings Beach is the heart of summer fun in North Lake Tahoe and one stop at its impressive beach will tell you why. Farmers markets and weekend craft fairs provide lots of summer fun and activity. Known as North Shore’s banana belt the area falls in the sun’s path from early morning into the evening during summer. Restaurants are plentiful here as well. During the winter ski season, Kings Beach is a perfect base camp and is located with 20 minutes of world-class ski resorts like Northstar at Tahoe, Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley.
