All three have lots of shopping, sightseeing, eating, etc.
There is so much to do in this area. Mini-Vegas without all the hassle and plenty of food/gambling/debauchery. The Lake Tahoe area is beautiful with plenty to do and see in winter or summer. I especially enjoy the old casinos on the Cal/Nev border for dinner. They don't have the traffic of the Reno casinos, so they have some killer dinner specials.
