Want to get a good look at what is going on at Lake Tahoe without leaving the comfort of your home? Check out one of these webcams online, including Hauserman Rental Groups very own webcam.
The Hauserman Rental Group webcam is located right above HRG’s office in The Cobblestone. It gives a great view of downtown Tahoe City. It answers these all important questions: What is the traffic and weather like in Tahoe City, and can I find a parking spot in The Cobblestone? Hopefully in about five months you can look and find snow falling.
The folks at tahoetopia.com have installed a host of other webcams around Tahoe. Here are a few fun ones to check out:
Heading to the Beach?
Commons Beach: Their newest webcam shows Commons Beach. Check it out this summer to see the crowd at the Sunday Concerts on the Beach, or Wednesday movie night, or just to see whether it is windy or time to jump in your kayak.
North Tahoe Event Center: Check out the sandy front of Kings Beach. Locate your spot on the sand then high tail it to the beach.
How’s the water looking:
Sunnyside Lodge: Head to this west shore hot spot to see whether the wind is better for sailing or paddleboarding. And just looking at those umbrellas on the deck will start your imagination heading towards Fish Tacos.
Tahoe City Marina: What’s it look like in the marina? This is a good one to see if thunderstorms or snow storms are rolling in.
Tahoe City Y: Get the latest on traffic coming into Tahoe City, as well as what is happening with the Fanny Bridge construction project.
Downtown Truckee: This is the one to go to to see how busy Truckee looks, or watch the goings on during Truckee Thursday.
Truckee Tahoe Airport Cam: It might not be car traffic, but why not check out the air traffic coming and going from the local airport.
