3) Lake Tahoe, Nevada

If you drive from California to the south side of Lake Tahoe, it is likely that one of the first things which will amaze you is its crystal clear waters. Lake Tahoe is the second deepest lake on the Northern Continent, estimated at 1,645 ft (501km); and it is its depth that undoubtedly contributes to the array of lustrous colors of blue in the water, which makes the Lake appear almost effervescent on a sunny day. The northern and southern portions of the Lake offer different geographical interests, with the north being more rugged. Regardless of where you are, though, the Lake truly appears as a jewel nestled in the mountains. Much has gone into keeping the waters of Lake Tahoe pristine; and the efforts have been well rewarded. As the largest alpine lake in Northern America, It is very unlikely that you will find more beautiful waters than Lake Tahoe.
