William Pomin built the original “Tahoe House” in 1868, one of the earliest hotels in the town solely known as “Tahoe” and was one the earlier believers in the area that would be named Tahoe City nearly 85 years later. Mr. Pomin could clearly see the potential in the crystal-clear waters, central location and access to the only outlet for Lake Tahoe, the much loved and needed Truckee River. The Truckee River is still one of the main attractions during summer though there is much more to the area. Commons Beach has become a very popular family location with weekly live music during the summer and activities for all. 64 Acre park connects the world-famous Tahoe Rim trail in Tahoe City, making for great access to both trailheads for either short day hikes or can act as a great location to stage for a more ambitious excursion. Much time and effort has been spent over the years to make Tahoe City a very pedestrian friendly area with crosswalks, walkways, stairs, and biking access and will only improve with the continued development. The dining options are plenty and if a quick 9 holes sound like fun, the locals favorite Tahoe City Golf Course will fit the bill. Originally conceived to increase tourism during the late winter months, Snowfest was developed and has been going strong ever since for both locals and visitors alike. Tahoe City extends the winter by hosting many of the fantastic Snowfest events including a snowy fireworks display, parade, dog pull, eating contests, and much more during this midwinter event.
With year-round activities, a great central location and a storied and deep history, Tahoe City is certainly a unique town and community in the Sierra Basin.
