The Bijou neighborhood, is divided into two distinct areas, Bijou 1 and Bijou 2 are located central South Lake Tahoe and near the Stateline neighborhood which is west of Ski Run Blvd between Pioneer Trail and the Al Tahoe neighborhood area. Bijou 1 accounts for the larger of the two neighborhoods while Bijou 2 is found within a smaller nook near the west side of Highway 50 and up just before Ski Run Blvd off Pioneer Trail. as well as near and around the popular and public Bijou Golf Course a beautiful 9 hole course. Bijou 1& 2 are within a few short minutes away from Heavenly Ski Resort, the casino area shopping and the Heavenly gondola. From the Bijou area, you can easily walk to the El Dorado Beach area, the South Lake Tahoe Recreation complex which offers a junior Olympic size pool, gym, community classes and the local indoor ice skating rink, hockey anyone? Another Attribute to the neighborhood is the Bijou Community Park located off of Al Tahoe Blvd. This park boasts a children’s playground, basketball courts, volleyball, skate park, disc golf and a great dog park. In the summer this park offers local Roller Derby Bouts from Tahoe’s own local Roller Derby team ‘Tahoe Derby Dames’.
Bijou gained more popularity both for year round residents and second home buyers in the early 2000’s due to a lot of new construction being built in Bijou. This new construction prompted higher and sustainable home values related to second home owners, as well as many primary residents, seeking a home with close proximity to Tahoe recreation. If you like a level lot and lots of sun and do not particularly love snow shoveling, the area provides a a banana belt of sorts with easy access to all that is fun in Lake Tahoe.
