North Shore & Kings Beach Shopping

North Shore and Kings Beach shopping is intimate. Huh? Well, what we mean is that the shopping scene is fairly small, owing to this being a lesser-populated North Lake Tahoe community. One wouldn’t expect to have this place be a shopping mecca. Still, your wallet can receive a decent workout if you know where Kings Beach shopping is at its best. Luckily, most of it is found after parking and walking along North Lake Boulevard or Highway 28.

Align your chakras, enlighten your spirit and find gifts that reflect North Lake Tahoe’s positive energies. Pick up soulful and whimsical works of art or locally made furniture, pottery and tableware to decorate your home at the Kings Beach stores featuring the works of regional craftsmen and artisans. Buy a perfect frame for that breathtaking picture of the lake you found. Pamper yourself with soaps, jewelry and candles. Eclectic items found during Kings Beach shopping often showcase this town’s ties with nature — hand-carved black bears, bird feeders and binoculars to get a close-up view of some of the animals that live here. Heading to a ski resort? Arrive in style and with new or rented equipment from a Kings Beach store. The same goes if you want to join in on one of the most popular sports around these parts – mountain biking and cycling.

Kings Beach Shopping Is Good For You

Kings Beach shopping options can make you happy on the inside too. Check out the markets and gift shops that carry organic foods, locally made sauces, oils and jams, deli items, smoothies and tonics, dry goods, craft beers and more. Need your daily shot of wheatgrass juice? No worries, it’s found at Kings Beach stores. Hardware and grocery stores offer t-shirts, postcards and other souvenirs.
