Although South Lake Tahoe is a major destination for people who want to do staycations as it hosts a number of outdoor activities like hiking, water sports at the lake, skiing during the winter, extreme sports and rock climbing, most people go here to partake of the cheap Casino Buffets and to Gamble at Stateline Nevada, as eventhough Stateline Nevada is smaller than Stateline California and South Lake Tahoe Towns, it hosts the only 5 casinos where most of the people going to lake Tahoe Area do and again, only Nevada Allows Gambling and if Californians are tired of going to Cache Creek or Thunder Valley Resorts and Casino in NorCAL and want a change of Scenery from Reno Gambling, then this is the Place to be.
Fondest memory: MontBleu, Harrah's Lake Tahoe, Horizon, and Harveys Lake Tahoe and The Lakeside Inn Casinos Packs them in and people ride the Casino Shuttle Buses going to and from these Casinos or just walk over the Stateline Avenue to Stateline Nevada or Park their cars at these Casinos.

Fondest memory: When I am away from home, I miss the luxury and privilege of living in such an incredibly special place that is far removed from the rat race.

Being away always reinforces my conviction that quality of life is my priority and that I have chose to live true to this ideal.
