Harrahs Casino

We have never been to Reno and are staying at Harrahs the end of January. I would like to know what Reno is like. Are there other casinos in walking distance from Harrahs? What is the temperature. We have been to Vegas lots and this trip is free. Thanks.

I think you have made a very good choice. I haven't stayed there in years but Harrah's in my opinion is one of the classiest and best run places in Reno. It is just off of the main strip and pretty central. You can walk to most of the casinos in Reno from there. The weather will be cold. Reno is sort of similar to the old downtown part of Vegas.

The Cal Neva is right across the street from Harrah's and across and up the street is Fitzgeralds, then Eldorado, Silver Legacy, and Circus Circus (the Sands is few blocks behind the Eldorado). It can be very cold in January, be sure to pack a coat. A few years ago, I would have compared downtown Reno to the old downtown part of Las Vegas, but with six hotel/casino closures in the last few years, there aren't a lot of hotel/casinos to choose from any more.

First off, the weather will feel balmy compared to the weather you've had recently!

Harrahs is a nice property, but not as nice as the Vegas property. Downtown is a bit dirty and seedy in areas, but you should be fine in the casinos and there's lots nearby.

If you have time and have not been there before, it's worth taking a drive over to Tahoe

It will be cold at night. Being at 4500 feet it will probably be in the 20's. The high could be from 35 to 50 even hotter or colder in extreme years. Just go to weather.com before you leave to give you a rough idea of the temperature.
