Tallac Historic Site
1 Heritage Way
South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150
Historical Site: History, Picnic
A century ago, what is now the Tallac Historic Site held the “Grandest Resort in the World” and was the summer retreat for three of San Francisco Bay Area’s socially elite families. Today, the remains of the resort and the restored estates attract thousands of visitors annually to recapture this bygone and significant era in Tahoe’s history. Adjacent to Lake Tahoe, Kiva Picnic Area and the Taylor Creek Visitor Center, the Tallac Historic Site is operated in partnership with the Tahoe Heritage Foundation.
The Tallac Historic Site is located approximately three miles northwest of the City of South Lake Tahoe on the lake side of Highway 89. The entrance is on Heritage Way across from Fallen Leaf Lake Road. The site offers something for everyone and many paths and most buildings are accessible. The Tallac site is open Memorial Day weekend through September. Though the buildings are closed during the winter, the grounds remain open year-round and the site serves as a popular cross-country skiing and snowshoeing destination. Please note: Campfires and portable charcoal grills are not allowed.
