Well, the reason I like Heavenly is the proximity to the Casinos, Nightlife, and, of course, Heavenly Ski Resort itself. You truly feel like you are in a resort area. Much of the redevelopment of South Lake Tahoe has taken place in this area from Heavenly Village itself to the sidewalk completion on Ski Run Blvd. The lake access is good too. Beach and Ski within five minutes of each other. Amazing!
