"The best scenic route, but one..." By Car / Motorcycle Tip by nuttyguy20

The best scenic route, but one you'll want to avoid in bad weather is to fly into Sacramento, CA and take the Interstate up through the Sierras and into South Lake Tahoe. The trip from the Nevada side is decent but doesn't compare to the drive alonside the American River.
You'll need a rental car because there the drive is wonderful around the lake. Plus the mass transit system won't get you to must see sites outside of town.
