"Are we there yet?"
 If you have kids and are on the road quite a bit, you probably get this a lot. Now if you've  are on the way to Lake Tahoe and you are travelling from the Bay Area/Sacramento side, there's a place where you can say, "Almost," and prove it too. 

On US 50E, when the GPS navigation system shows around 15 miles to City of South Lake Tahoe, there's a nice viewpoint that shows you Lake Tahoe from afar. If I'm not mistaken, this is called the Echo Summit vista point. It's a place to brake and take a few pictures.

Don't miss Tahoe airport's runway in the picture above.

Look right down at the valley just beside the highway and witness this birds eye view:
