    We just returned from a trip to Harrahs Reno and had a great time. Maybe because we won a little but I like to think the people were really friendly and the place not so crowded.

    We are planning a return in May but are trying to decide between Harrahs Reno or Harrans Tahoe. The recent trip was heavy video poker with each of us reaching the 2500 point per day each day. A trip to Tahoe would be less gambling and maybe more time around the lake since it should be warmer in May.

    Any input to sway us?

    We always do a combination. Tahoe is so different and awesome scenery. Winter or summer.

    Downtown is, well downtown.

    We go to Tahoe very frequently when it is not snowing. Unless we have a very rare May this year it is too early for hanging around the beach in a bathing suit. Our family goes in July and August for the beach time, water is a bit warmer, temps high enough to enjoy all outdoor activities. The views from the higher rooms in both Harrah's and Harvey's are wonderful and there are nice places to walk to from either hotel. I am sure the Tahoe Queen and MS Dixie operate in May that is a nice boat trip on the lake but it will be still be a bit chilly.

    The only negative I can tell you about is my husband and I were there over Memorial Day weekend a couple of years back, staying at Harrahs and there was a huge number of 20 somethings also staying there. Very noisy in their rooms, and one night I happened to be in the casino about 2 am and most of them were so drunk and not the happy drunks but they were rude. I witnessed a physical fight between a few and it seemed to take forever for security to arrive and break it up.

    Might also mention that Harvey's is lakeside so views are of the lake, but Harvey's does not have a coffee shop. Starbuck's yes but no place to get food. You need to walk over to Harrahs to eat. I think either of them are a big step up from Reno.

    We try to alternate our trips to Reno and Tahoe. Therefore, I would go to Tahoe next. If you do, go to Mont Bleu next door for breakfast. The biscuits and gravy there are tops.

    Harrahs Lake Tahoe has preety good VP. You wont have any problem getting 2,500 or even 5,000 points in a day.

    A casino is a casino is a casino. Where would you like vacation? Tahoe is awesome; hey, I have Tahoe plates on the Honda. I'm also a fan of Reno. May could limit what you'd do up in the Sierra but since you've been to Reno ...

    We also spend part of our time in Reno and part time in Tahoe. Gambling conditions in Reno are much better than in Tahoe but you're paying for the view. That being said, Tahoe is my favorite place in the world (not that I've been to every place in the world). We enjoy hiking and biking and there's no better place for those kinds of activities than Tahoe.
