Lake Tahoe’s Zephyr Cove Rated as One of America’s Best Beaches

USA Today Survey Selects the Best Beach in Every State

LAKE TAHOE, NV—Jun. 7, 2012 - A survey of local experts conducted by USA Today ranked Zephyr Cove as the best beach in Nevada and one of the best in the nation overall. The survey identified the top beach in all fifty states and the District of Columbia.

“Locals have long known that Zephyr Cove has a great beach,” said Tony Lyle, director of sales and marketing for Zephyr Cove Resort and Lake Tahoe Cruises, “It’s wonderful that it is now being recognized on a national level for its pristine waters and beautiful views.”

Located on the southeast side of Lake Tahoe, just four miles north of Stateline, Nev., Zephyr Cove offers a wide variety of activities and amenities to guests, making it a great destination for families and couples alike. The mile-long sandy cove is popular for activities such as beach volleyball and perfect for building sand castles with the kids, or soaking up the sun. For those looking for high octane adventure, the Zephyr Cove Marina offers rentals of powerboats and water toys such as personal water craft, kayaks and paddleboats. The marina is also home to the M.S. Dixie II, an authentic Mississippi paddlewheeler boat that offers scenic and brunch cruises to Glenbrook and daytime and dinner cruises to Emerald Bay.

Steps from the beach you will find Sunset Bar and Grill—the perfect place to grab a delicious meal and drink during your beach day. For those looking to extend their time here, Zephyr Cove Resort, celebrating its 150th anniversary, offers lodge rooms, 28 historic beach-front cabins and Zephyr Cove Restaurant serving local favorites.
