Ray's donut menu starts with its handmade glazed variety ($6.90 for a dozen). From there, sample the bounty of frosting and fillings ($0.89 per donut).

Sequestered in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, David Walley’s 1862 Restaurant and Saloon centers around its seven natural, hot mineral springs and pools. During winter months, guests lounge in the bubbling pools and take in panoramic views of snowcapped peaks. David Walley’s is also home to its eponymous restaurant, with menu of casual fine-dining dishes that complement a wine list noted for earning Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence in 2012. Entrees include grilled swordfish on horseradish mashed potatoes, and braised lamb shank on saffron-orzo pasta. Around the resort, world-class skiing routes host dozens of snowboarders and skiers, with hundreds of miles of snowmobiling, hiking and mountain bike trails. In summer, hot-air ballooning, wakeboarding, and water skiing are favorite pastimes while guides lead horseback sojourns through the many nearby trails.

South Tahoe sparkles during the day and then again at night. Day trips to Emerald Bay State Park make for fantastic photo opportunities of the lake as it shimmers within a bowl of glacier-carved granite. Autumn in Lake Tahoe affords some of the best mountain-biking opportunities in the country, and winter brings in the ski bunnies with nearby slopes that provide complimentary shuttle service to the hotel. Snow-shoers and hikers can take in the staggering Glen Alpine Falls, which cascade 65 feet down the rock face and provide sightseers with beautiful views, natural sounds, and free legal advice. Evening jaunts out on the town among the glimmering nightclubs and casinos pave the streets silver with slot-machine earnings.

At Sizzling Wok, chefs wield fiery-hot woks chock-full of stir-fry dishes from a menu of Chinese specialties such as peking pork, chow mein, and kung pao chicken. Combination plates grant the power of choice to hunger-havers, helping them pack plates with their choice of two stir-fry entrees, chow mein, fried rice, and a crispy fried drumstick ($7.99). Sizzling Wok's cooks learn to juggle up to two quarts of tender chicken breasts, aromatic spices, and crisp vegetables, which they toss into piping-hot woks for dishes such as the peanut- and jalapeño-laced kung pao chicken ($5.99/pt.). Pan-fried pot stickers burst with a filling of tasty meat and vegetables ($3.99 for six) and, when paired with fried tempura shrimp ($4.99 for six), demolish international side-dish-specific cravings.

Temperamental tongues needn't worry, as the amicable wait staff will happily set up the perfect match between dish spice levels and guests' spice tolerance.

There's no ambiguity to the main draw of Stateline—it's gambling. Just as there is no ambiguity to the origins of the town's name, as it lies right along the California-Nevada border. As such, Stateline pulls in plenty of visitors from California, and in turn, Nevadans can easily hop the border to visit neighboring South Lake Tahoe, home to the Heavenly Ski Area.Once skiing season winds down in late April, it becomes easier to hike the granite banks of Emerald Bay. Two of the most popular routes lead to Eagle Falls, whose waters cascade with more force during the snowmelt in May.Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.
