Your good on the South Shore. No need to hit the north Shore unless your doing beach/water stuff, but this time of year the water is a toasty 60 df.
Thanks. Will have wife & 19year old daughter (who obviously can't go to casino). My choices are basically Harrahs or this 3bd condo (http://www.tahoebarterrentals.com/). So...
Condo pros: MUCH bigger/better room for "play money", kitchen, killer views/surroundings. Cons: makes long drive (from Valley Center) even longer, long drive to casinos/entertainment/etc, nothing much for bored daughter within walking distance.
Harrahs pros: walk to casino/food/downtown/etc
Cons: Real $ for much less of a room, no sipping Don Julio 1942 from deck overlooking killer views.
