Located in Tahoe City, Commons Beach boasts stunning views of Lake Tahoe, a playground to keep the kiddos busy while you enjoy that view, and plenty of picnic tables if your care to enjoy a meal with the family among this beautiful scenery. What I wish it had was more water! The water's edge has receded drastically during this historic drought. It was more than a little alarming. The Fall Foliage was an incredible mixture of golds, oranges, and reds. Lovely!
Other beach park amenities include a clean restroom facility.
Note: Commons Beach is not dog-friendly, something I don't really understand. My guess is that this spot can get crowded during the summer and a dog would add mayhem to it. During the Fall though, there is no reason to not walk a dog on the beach here, just stay up on the pathway, keep your four-legged friends on a leash and be sure to clean up after it.
