Two major California tourists hubs were just named to Fodor’s “No List” for 2023….
Perhaps unsurprisingly for locals, Lake Tahoe was among the 2023 picks. Fodor’s cited the surge in urbanites moving to the Sierra during the pandemic as a contributing factor to pollution and traffic woes, and even a threat to the lake’s famed clarity.
“Heavy traffic crushes Tahoe’s roads into fine dust and debris and pumps tailpipe emissions into the air. When it rains or snow melts, stormwater transports these fine pollution particles into the Lake, clouding its cobalt blue waters,” Fodor’s wrote. “Improving Tahoe’s traffic conditions will reduce this pollution source, and alleviate the stress and strain of travel in Tahoe.”
