Considered to be one of the best five firework displays in the nation, the Lights On The Lake 4th of July Fireworks Celebration in South Lake Tahoe should definitely be on your calendar. Happening on the 4th of July proper, this extravaganza of lights and action is a perfect showing for the entire family no matter where you are situated in South Shore. Although seating at the lake is the best place to take in the show, the display of fireworks is so grand that it is easily seen anywhere. If you would like to make your 4th of July more luxurious, try the M.S. Dixie paddleboat tour on Lake Tahoe or go helicopter bound with Heli-Tahoe Helicopters. For a more down-to-earth version, there are various public beaches offering seating, such as Nevada Beach, Timber Cove Marina at the Tahoe Beach Retreat & Lodge, Edgewood-Tahoe or the Lakeview Commons/El Dorado Beach as well as the Tallac Historic Site near Baldwin Beach (if you would like a little bit of elevation with your fireworks, you can hike up Mount Tallac for a bird's eye view). To make your night that much better, be sure to tune into radio KRLT-FM 93.9 or KOWL-AM 1490 for a synchronized music broadcast set to the booms of this patriotic moment.
