Both Harrah’s and Harvey’s have arcades that are easy to find and away from the casino floor. Drop a few quarters into the “old school” style arcade games or check out more modern games that make you feel like you are in the middle of the action. Going to the arcade is a great way to do physical things while getting a little bit competitive with your friends/family members.

But wait, there’s more!
