Incline Village NV is an incredibly picturesque spot to use as a base for a Tahoe ski vacation. The town is nestled in amongst the mountains and along the northeast shore of Lake Tahoe, which features various lovely beaches.
Incline Village Nevada is a fabulous community of contradictions. Lakeshore Boulevard is a playground for the mega wealthy, with an abundance of multi-million dollar mansions that overlook Lake Tahoe. Even the dogs with their bling bling collars on look very well-to-do. Meanwhile the local ski hill, Diamond Peak
, is incredibly family friendly, inexpensive and relaxed, and the shops and eateries in town are very unassuming.
Another drawcard for Incline Village NV, especially those who like to gamble, is the Incline Village casino. The Grand Lodge Casino is located at the Hyatt Regency Resort and is decidedly classier and less smoky than most of the Reno casinos.

The town has a few ski shops, a couple of supermarkets, a handful of basic cafes (for great coffee head to the IV Coffee Lab), a pub, and several restaurants to go out for dinner.
