Tahoe City & Sunnyside
Tahoe City is the hub of the North access to Lake Tahoe. In Tahoe City is the beginning of Northshore Blvd and Westshore Blvd the unofficial dividing line between “Westshore” and “Northshore.” Highway 89 leading from Interstate 80 to Tahoe City is the only level access into all of the Lake Tahoe Basin. Due to this unique access it is where the railroad from San Francisco to Chicago connected to a spur at Truckee to bring passengers right to the water’s edge. Tahoe City was initially surveyed in 1863 during the Civil War. The first post office was established there in 1871. It wasn’t until 1868 that the Central Pacific Railroad was completed through Donner Pass. Soon wealthy San Franciscans were taking the train to Tahoe City, out on to the pier, where they boarded a steamer that would take them to various estates and resorts such as Tahoe Tavern, Tahoe House, Vikingsholm and the Brockway Springs Hotel. The first automobile didn’t make it to Tahoe until 1905!
Today Tahoe City is the central hub of the North and Westshores and has all price ranges of homes from modest to magnificent. There is usually a good inventory of homes for sale in Tahoe City.
