Crowded Tahoe beaches, good for local businesses

KINGS BEACH, CA (KOLO) The warm summer weather is bringing large crowds to beaches around Lake Tahoe.

Some popular places, like Sand Harbor, are filling up quickly after its 8:00 a.m. opening time. The park is trying out different opening times to help alleviate crowds and traffic.

The silver lining to all of these crowds is that it is good for businesses.

"There's times where we have lines down the stairs to the parking lot," Angela Lopez, of Log Cabin Ice Cream, says. This is just one of many businesses experiencing this boom.

"There's even people here before we open and then we usually close at ten and lately we've been closing like around 10:30 or 10:40," she says.
