World-class skiing by day and gambling by night—this is what splashy Harrah's offers the escapist traveler. A Tahoe stalwart since 1955, this high-rise resort features a spa, an indoor pool under a domed skylight, and comfortable, contemporary rooms, all outfitted with a pair of bathrooms. The bustling casino anchors the nightlife scene, but there's also Peek, a DJ-driven club with VIP seating, and the South Shore Room, a live music venue.
