South Lake Tahoe Casinos and Nightlife

Slot Machine Fun at a Casino

No question, there is fun on the South Shore. The Nevada side of Lake Tahoe has all the famous casinos. They operate all day all night, have low cost food buffets, and in the evenings when they light up with really great headline entertainment. It is very typical of Las Vegas but... Tahoe does is not in the desert. It's on a lake and a gorgeous one, so the weather is cool and breezy not dry, hot and sweaty! If you want to spend some fun time without the kids... drop on in. The hotels offer all the popular casino games and maybe you'll come home with your vacation paid for!

The three big hotels that are right on the Heavenly Valley California / Nevada border are actually in the city of "Stateline". It's a funny name, and not a very big city, but that is it's proper name, but it is most commonly called either Heavenly Valley or just South Tahoe. There's Harraha's and the new MontBleu which was formerly Caesars Tahoe right on the Stateline Strip. Harvey's is the hotel that has the great Tahoe summer outdoor concerts series almost every weekend in during the warmer months. But they are not the only game in town.

If your continuing your adventure around the lake, the casinos disappear when you cross the California line. If you elect to make your reservations at the Northstar Resort, Squaw Valley, or Tahoe City, also great hubs for activities entertainment, but do not have casinos. The closest will be to drive about 25 minutes to either Crystal Bay or Incline Village.

Lake Tahoe and these specific areas that have casinos are busiest during any holiday time, or when the kids are off from school. New Year's Eve and Christmas is the most popular time to travel to Lake Tahoe, so if you're planning an end of the year vacation, you'll want to start thinking that out well in advance. Most properties are sold out by December 1 or sooner. President's Weekend, July 4th and Labor Day are the other popular times. When making your Lake Tahoe reservations, be sure to let your reservation concierge know what activities you'll be doing, so you can stay close and keep the driving to a minimum. It is a gorgeous drive, but to go around the lake 360 degrees takes at least 1.5 hours and you can't do the drive in winter.

Here is a little more information on the casinos, gambling and nightlife in Lake Tahoe.
