New Orleans Casinos

New Orleans casinos are very popular attractions for tourists visiting the city. There are quite a few of them in New Orleans including full scale, large complexes such as Harrah's Casino New Orleans. In a city known for its crazy partying, nightlife, and music, gambling in New Orleans fits nicely into the picture. If you are planning a trip to the city and already plan to take in the sights and sounds of the French Quarter and other attractions around the city, you might consider a night out at a casino. Harrah's also has a nice hotel as well as a casino so if gambling and partying appeals to you, it may be in your best interest to book your stay in New Orleans at this kind of place. These are very well operated casinos that feature a range of restaurants, live entertainment, nightly performances, and of course, gaming.


Gambling in New Orleans does not get a whole lot better than at Harrah's. There are package deals that give you very flexible options for getting the most value for your money should you decide to stay. You can save money by bundling the services that you would take advantage of anyway, and these deals get better if you reserve in advance. Harrah's Casino New Orleans allows you to choose from dining, concerts, comedy, golf, room deals, nightlife, and more when you arrange for a package deal. This is a great way to realize savings. You know you will be gambling, eating, drinking, and staying at the casino, so you may as well save money by looking into current offerings for package deals well in advance of your trip. The live entertainment at Harrah's Casino New Orleans features professional musicians, dancers, and other entertainers. The quality of the performances is impressive and the casino regularly brings in national talent from the worlds of music and comedy.

Harrah's is located in the heart of the city just blocks from attractions like the French Quarter, Convention Center, and Garden District. It is a luxurious hotel by anyone’s standards and is a landmark building in New Orleans. It is a 26-story high-rise that features 450 elegantly appointed guest rooms and suites. You will not want for anything if you decide to couple your gambling in New Orleans with a stay at Harrah's. There is obviously a wide range of food options just outside the casino as well, but inside you will find everything from fine dining options and the best of the Creole and Cajun, New Orleans-style traditional dishes to desserts, snacks and of course, cocktails.

The Treasure Chest Casino (pictured at top) is another popular destination in the city. Amongst New Orleans casinos it is a fine establishment located in Kenner, nearby the airport. Its proximity to Louis Armstrong International Airport makes it a popular stop-by for business travelers. The Hilton Garden Inn is right next door and is a lovely accommodation from which you will have lovely vistas of Lake Pontchartrain and (from the higher levels) the grand Mississippi.

While Harrah's and The Treasure Chest are the big casinos in town, there are a number of smaller casinos in town and nearby as well. Staying at one of the New Orleans casinos can be a great way to spend your vacation in the Big Easy in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Most of them are also close by all of the city’s best attractions.
