Information on Visiting Harrah’s Casino

If you are driving north on I-15 from San Diego, you will find the length of the drive much shorter if you drag the blue route south on the Google Map so it exits at Centre City Parkway. Although the route is shorter, the time will remain the same because you will drive through the urban area of Escondido and then through the town of Valley Center. So, you have the option of taking the longer, but less crowded route or the shorter, but busier route.
