Tahoe Vista California

Tahoe Vista, California, 96148 is located on
the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, CA.
Welcome to Tahoe Vista, CA 96148Tahoe Vista, California is located on the North Shore between Carnelian Bay and Kings Beach (approximately seven (7) miles east of Tahoe City), and about one (1) mile west of the junction of Highway 28 and Highway 267 in Kings Beach, California. 
The Tahoe Vista community is broken into two separate areas that are not geographically connected.  You can not get to upper Tahoe Vista, or Lower Tahoe Vista with out going through Kings Beach, unless you are on foot, or dirt bike and enjoy a good hike, or bike ride. 
The lower Tahoe Vista area is accessed via Highway 28, and the upper Tahoe Vista area is accessed via Highway 267.  At one time there were plans to connect the upper and lower Tahoe Vista areas via National Avenue, which is located in both areas together, which would have created a by-pass and short-cut around most of the Kings Beach community.
Lower Tahoe Vista is a favorite for owners because of the short distance to the beautiful white sandy public beaches.  Upper Tahoe Vista is a favorite for owners who are looking to be away from it all in a forest mountain setting, and like the short distance to either Northstar and the public beaches in downtown Kings Beach.
The Tahoe Vista area has a small commercial corridor that has the local post office, several restaurants, an ice cream stand, several motels, condominium developments, bed and breakfast establishments, and a small marina. 
The Tahoe Vista area offers a lot of variety when it comes to neighborhood settings with an intimate mountain side/forest setting neighborhoods with pine tree lined single car roads to larger neighborhoods with nice wide streets, larger lots, and a more remote feeling.  Tahoe Vista has something for everyone and its close proximity to Northstar, downtown Kings Beach, and the Nevada Stateline makes the Tahoe Vista community a great central location to be in North Lake Tahoe.   

A big feature of being on the North Shore is the all day sunshine, as the sun moves east to west.  The central North Shore location makes it easy to get to any of our local ski resorts such as Northstar, Incline Village, Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, or Homewood. 
Tahoe Vista is located in unincorporated Placer County in California and has a full-time population of about 1,433 people (2010 US Census). 
Tahoe Vista's close proximity to all of Lake Tahoe recreational activities such as boating, hiking, biking (dirt and paved trails), tennis, golf, skiing, shopping, and restaurants makes this a great area for those that enjoy being outdoors, and looking to get away from it all, but like having many nearby options for dining.

The Tahoe Vista area is easily accessed all year-long and is a nice mix of full-time residents and second home owners.

Tahoe Vista home owners that want to belong to one of the recreational home owner amenities associations will find they have very few options.  There is a small property owners group that has a right of way access to the beach in the Tahoe Estates Subdivision, and unless you are in one of the Tahoe Vista condominium/townhouse developments, buyers that want to belong to a Home Owner Association will need to look in other communities like Carnelian Bay, or Tahoe City.
