Heading to Lake Tahoe in July with dh and ds. Can someone tell me where is best, south, north, east shore? We would like to do some hiking and some swimming in the lake/lounging by the lake. Don't want it to be somewhere really busy but also not in the back of beyond.
My head is full reading the guide book and I can't decide what would suit us best.
Any advice gratefully received.

Truckee is a lovely quaint town.

We've only skied there and stayed in Squaw valley and Northstar.

Emerald bay was beautiful for walking around.

We drove through Heavenly and not my style. Didn't quire live up to its name - but great if you like strips and casinos.

We stayed in South Lake Tahoe City in 1986 and it was a dump. It is very close to the Nevada border and the place was full of sleazy motels with waterbeds and adult movies.

Emerald Bay is beautiful.
