Starting in Incline Village and heading south along Route 28 and US 50, there are a number of pulloffs and a few small trails where you can get off the road and take in the majesty of the lake and the surrounding mountains. This is a beautiful area, and the fresh air is welcome if you've been inhaling cigarette smoke in the casinos all day. The speed limit is 45 for the most part along this road, so you should easily see the areas coming up for a pull off - take your time and see them.
Coming from the north, there is a marked pulloff early, which has a small trail as well as a less-than-detailed map of the region. I recommend you stop, get your bearings and see what's coming up, then jump on the trail to get a closer look at the lake. All of the trails are extremely short, and a few have placards that give you good historical info.
There are really 5 major casinos in the area: Horizon, Harveys, Harrahs, Montbleu, and Lakeside Inn. Lakeside Inn is about half a mile north of the other 4. There are several large parking garages surrounding the area of the 4 casinos, so park anywhere and you'll easily walk between the cluster. There is even an underground pedestrian bridge between Harveys and Harrahs if you don't want to cross the street. Horizon was going under rennovations while I was there, and seemed very sparsely populated by machines. The other three were typical of your larger casinos, with a selection of table games and machines. Lakeside Inn is on the smaller side, but also had both tables and machines. If you're into casino gambling, you should enjoy perusing the area.
This was commissioned by William Harrah to be placed in front of his casino in Tahoe. Sculpted by Avard Fairbanks and he has sculpted many other beautiful pieces of work all over the country. I hope they never move this beautiful statue.
The plaque reads:
In Commemroation of The Pony Express a fleeting and exciting epoch in the Winning of the West erected April 4th, 1963 by Harrah's William F. Harrah, President. The first Pony Express Rider passed here April 4th, 1860 on his way to Friday's Station are mount point 4/10th of a mile northwest at Edgewood, Nevada.

Latin Soul is tucked away in the basement of the Lakeside Inn. Once you get downstairs, don't expect to see a beautiful entrance to a restaurant, it's really just a half wall surrounding a number of interesting tables to the side of a gaming area and bar. But don't let this deter you from pulling up a chair. Check out the specials of the day on the whiteboard as you are seated, or order from the decent menu that they have on hand. The wait staff is friendly, and the sounds from the casino are muted so you won't have a ton of noise. I went with the enchilada platter - a couple of very tasty chicken enchiladas, a side of rice, and a side of beans. It came pretty quickly and was very good and filling. I watched what some of the other patrons had to eat as well, everything looked good. If you want to get away from the buffets and coffee shops in Stateline, this is a definite place to try.
Right next door is Heavenly Village that offers visitors a great place to explore, shop, dine, see movie, play mini golf, or just hangout and enjoy the outdoors.
