Kings Beach Visitors Center to reopen Saturday

The seasonal Kings Beach Visitor Information Center is scheduled to reopen for the summer on Saturday, June 30, supplying tourists with information about lodging, retail, attractions, dining and special events.

Located next to the North Tahoe Beach and across Highway 28 from Kings Beach’s Safeway, the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association will open the center for its third season.

The Visitor’s Center, which will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., will offer tourists a variety of information on anything from where to take dogs to where to enjoy an authentic Italian meal, said Andy Chapman, the resort association’s director of Tourism.

“[The visitor’s center] is a good outlet for visitors to get their information about their stay up here,” Chapman said.

The center will promote businesses throughout the North Tahoe area, but it will especially spur Kings Beach businesses by bringing visitors into that community, Chapman said.

“Certainly it will help the Kings Beach folks,” he said.

The center is tentatively scheduled to remain open until the third week in September.

“There’s an endless amount of things to do in North Lake Tahoe,” said Bill Hoffman, executive director of the Incline Village Crystal Bay Visitor’s Bureau in a written statement. “Once our guests get here they’ll find free concerts, farmers markets, casinos, golf courses, lesser known trails and restaurants off the beaten path.”

The Kings Beach center will join the resort association’s year-round visitor center in Tahoe City and the Incline Village Crystal Bay Visitor’s Bureau.

“Our goal for all three visitor centers is to work collaboratively to open up more doors for visitors so they can further explore North Lake Tahoe, as well as its 11 neighborhoods,” Hoffman said.
