        <h3>From Tents to Resorts</h3>
          Lake Tahoe is full of wonderful places to stay. You have the ability to sleep in the outdoors in a tent, or relax like a king at a five star resort. Here are our top three resorts:
          <li><a href="#hotels">Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel</a></li>
          <li><a href="#resorts">South Lake Tahoe Resorts</a></li>

        <h3>Pack Accordingly</h3>
          One of most important things when it comes to traveling through the great outdoors is packing accordingly. Here are a few tips:
          <li>Bring layers of clothing</li>
          <li>Pack sunscreen</li>
          <li>Carry extra water just in case</li>
          <li>Pack light</li>

Good luck with the course!
