5 Reasons to Love Lake Charles
Here at Isle of Capri Casino® Hotel Lake Charles, we know that the mere mention of Louisiana brings up notions of gators, gumbo and, of course, gaming (the very best gaming, if we do say so ourselves). However, the renowned region of Lake Charles offers all that – and then some. If you're planning a trip to our beloved district, here are 5 great reasons why you and your crew will love your visit to Lake Charles.
Get Your Golf On
Another fun "G-word" you can immerse yourself in during your stay here is GOLF! If you and your traveling companions want to hit the links, you will have ample opportunity to do so here. You will have access to a total of five public, well-maintained courses so you can always get your golfing fix. If you're not quite ready for a full round, you and your group can also opt for a little mini-golf action to pass time outdoors in our beautiful region.
Take In A Little Nature
If you have wildlife lovers in your midst, you will definitely want to plan a trip to the Creole Nature Trail. It's known as Louisiana's Outback, and with good reason; the 180-mile stretch was one of America's original picturesque passages. You and your group can plan an entire day here fishing, bird watching, hunting and boating. Best of all, the Creole Nature Trail offers year round tours so you'll enjoy breathtaking seasonal views depending on when you arrive.
Two Words: Mardi Gras
If you think that New Orleans is the only place to partake in an authentic Mardi Gras, think again. Lake Charles attracts an estimated 150,000 people every year to celebrate this annual party. Mark your calendars and prepare for a Mardi Gras experience to remember.
Arts and Culture
The Lake Charles area is virtually teeming with arts and culture. Visit some of the districts’ many museums, theatres and artistic exhibits. Start with the Historic City Hall Arts & Cultural Center and work your way through the area, drinking in everything offered by our unique local talents and creative minds.
Lake Charles also offers a thriving nightlife scene for visitors to revel in. Restaurants sure to please every palate, live musicians and fun, modern bars are just some of the many ways you can spend the late night hours.
