The resort of Zephyr Cove is situated in the very far west of the state of Nevada, on Lake Tahoe, which also stretches into California. This is in the west of the United States of America. If you are considering spending your holidays in Zephyr Cove, you could not be any better placed to explore the best attractions of Nevada: the state capital, Carson City, is a very short drive to the east, and the popular gambling city of Reno is only an hour’s drive to the north. The self catering accommodation in Zephyr Cove will be furnished to a very high standard and will come equipped with all the facilities you will need to ensure 100% comfort.
What you decide to do on your holidays in Zephyr Cove is going to be dependent on the time of the year you visit the area. The winter is devoted to the winter-sports in this part of Nevada and snowmobiling is especially popular here. The summers are given over to activities such as fishing, rambling, horse riding and swimming. On the lake itself, it is possible to enjoy water skiing, parasailing and it is even possible to hire your own boat for a time that suits you. If you get tired of cooking back in your self catering accommodation in Zephyr Cove, there are some great restaurants to sample within the resort.
Some of the attractions that you might like to consider visiting in the Zephyr Cove area include the South Lake Tahoe Casinos (which will give you a small taste of Reno), the Squaw Valley Adventure Centre which offers a multitude of outdoor activities for the whole family to get involved in and the Grover Hot Springs State Park which is great for exploring some of the most interesting environmental and geological facets of Nevada. Also, don’t forget that both Carson City and Reno are within a very quick and easy drive of Zephyr Cove and you cannot come to this part of the state without paying both a much-deserved visit.
As your holidays in Zephyr Cove will be influenced by the Sierra Nevada Mountains, you can expect to experience a climate that is described as steppe in this part of the world. Closer to sea level, the average temperature is around 6 degrees Celsius during the winter months. In summer, this is more likely to be around the low-thirties degrees Celsius. There are around 7Â½ inches of precipitation in this part of Nevada per year and some of this is likely to fall as snow in the winter, especially at higher levels.
The nearest airport for your holidays in Zephyr Cove will be Reno-Tahoe International (RNO). However, no flights land here directly from the UK. You will therefore need to use a domestic service from other US cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles or Chicago, through airlines such as American Airways, United Express and Southwest Airlines. Depart from London Heathrow (LHR) in the UK with airlines such as American Airways, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic.
