Lake Tahoe Shopping

Lake Tahoe seems to have a little something for everyone, and Lake Tahoe shopping is no exception. Diverse just like location, Lake Tahoe shopping blends sports gear shops, indie boutiques, galleries, gift shops and furniture stores, among others, to create an eclectic gamut of commerce. For example, Squaw Valley shopping mixes a little grocery experience with national name sporting gear outfitters, chocolatiers, jewelry and a pet emporium! You can find a little bit of everything in the many Lake Tahoe stores. Your visit to Tahoe City gives you a chance to treat yourself to new pair of skis from a winter sports outlet and a chainsaw-carved bear.

Are you thinking, “I didn’t come all the way to Lake Tahoe to shop!”? Now is the time to evaluate your priorities: You came to Lake Tahoe for the setting, the sports or the attractions. Think about it. Lake Tahoe shopping falls into each of these categories. There aren’t many places where you can find multifarious shops like Greenwich Village-worthy boutiques sitting beside winter sports outfitters as they do in Truckee shopping. Or get ready for a summer full of outdoor adventures with the help of Kings Beach shops. The blend of the Old West and groovy California setting creates Lake Tahoe stores that are worth exploring. And with all the sports you may plan on doing during your vacation, it’s nice to have stores, like the ones you’ll find in South Lake Tahoe, that can supply you with gear and cover you from head to toe with high technology fabric designed to enhance your performance, whether that be on something that slides, bike tires or on foot. Trust us, this is an activity you won’t want to miss.

Nothing Like Lake Tahoe Shops

If you want to get your hands on some locally handcrafted pottery, furniture or other crafts, the galleries and home furnishing stores found all around the lake will give you a piece of Tahoe to take home.
