Lake Tahoe, California: Tallac Historic Site
Ah, the Roaring Twenties -- when the wealthy knew how to spend their money.
At least that was the case at the Tallac Historic Site, located on the south side of Lake Tahoe. It's actually a collection of 28 buildings spread out over 150 acres. Visitors can take tours of the larger houses for a small fee. But if you show up after hours, you still can peek inside the windows and strong the grounds.
The highlight, as you might expect, comes near the water's edge. The view of Lake Tahoe is terrific. And you don't have to be a member of the Jet Set to enjoy it.
