Gambling and traveling are two of the most exciting things you could choose as your hobby. There’s also a way to combine the two and travel while visiting some of the best casinos in the world. Chances are that the cities that are known for their casinos, are also fun tourist destinations that you can enjoy when you’re not playing.
Here we explore a list of cities that you should visit if you want to find great casinos, but also if you’re looking for a tourist offer that goes beyond gambling.
Las Vegas, Nevada
Every list made for gambling tourists needs to start with Las Vegas since it is the gambling capital of the world. Everyone’s heard of Las Vegas because of its casinos and the excitement that’s associated with the city. If you love gambling, you should visit it at least once (and chances are it won’t be just once).
Las Vegas is also known for its entertainment, various shows, and concerts, meaning that you’ll always have something to do when you’re not in the casino. The city is bright, lavish, and exciting and you’ll enjoy every exciting minute you spend in it.
Monte Carlo, Monaco
Another great destination that has become synonymous with gambling. After all, it’s where James Bond’s been gambling. Monte Carlo is known for its lavish casinos that offer every game imaginable, alongside great service and cuisine. Gambling tradition, as well as that of luxury tourism, goes back to the 19th century.
Besides that, the Mediterranean scenery is beautiful and an attraction of its own, meaning that outside the excitement of casinos, you can also enjoy a relaxing and fulfilling vacation outside of gambling, while in Monaco.
Marina Bay, Singapore
The gambling industry has been steadily growing in Asia for years now. That’s because there’s a legal basis for it and because there’s a growing market for the industry as more people in Asia have the disposable income needed to gamble. Marina Bay is one of the locations that has propped up due to this boom.
Luxuries and well-organized hotels in Marina Bay also offer nightclubs, numerous swimming pools, and some of the largest atrium casinos in the world, if not the largest one. There are also numerous games dedicated to high rollers, but average players also have an array of options for them.
San Jose, Costa Rica
This is a destination that may not be on everyone’s list since it’s rather new in its reputation among gamblers. However, it’s definitely one that you should visit if you love gambling and want to experience a great tourism offer Costa Rica is so proud of.
There are more than 15 casinos in the city so that’s more than enough to keep you busy while you’re in the mood to play. When you’re not, the city also has a rich culture, and beautiful landscape, as well as plenty of offers for those who like an active vacation.
Atlantic City, New Jersey
Atlantic City is just as popular a destination for gamblers as Las Vegas, and it has an equally exciting offer for both entertainment, and gambling. Casinos are lavish and high tech and they have rooms for high rollers as well as ordinary players.
The city is built around the gambling industry but it’s not everything that it has to offer. The boardwalk is the trademark of the city and it’s filled with great tourist attractions. There are concerts, bars, and shows and you’ll surely find something to enjoy outside the casino, regardless of what your preference and interest are.
You usually don’t think about Paris as a gambling city, since it has so much to offer beyond the casinos. That’s definitely true, but the casinos themselves aren’t something to overlook either. Paris casinos offer all the most popular games such as blackjack, roulette, and baccarat.
When you’re in Paris and you’re not gambling, you can experience the city of love and romance, with some of the best cuisines in the world. It’s also a city to visit if you’re an art lover, so you’ll have plenty of things to experience and enjoy even if you’re not into gambling.
London is another city that’s rarely associated with gambling due to other ventures that you can enjoy while visiting. However, it still has a vibrant and exciting casino scene. Empire Casinos are probably the most popular ones, and they are Vegas-style establishments, with all that it entails.
Hippodrome casinos are also especially popular and they have tables for both the high rollers and those who are just in the casino having fun while visiting London. When you’re not in the casino, you’re in London and there’s no shortage of tourist attractions to enjoy.
Los Angeles, California
Los Angeles is often placed behind Vegas and Reno when it comes to the US casinos. However, it’s a mistake to overlook it, especially because a trip to LA can be fun even for those who are not looking to gamble. LA has had a casino since the 80s but, the industry has especially grown since 2015 when it tried to use it to attract tourists.
Other than that while you’re in the city of Hollywood and the tech industry, you’ll always have something to enjoy and explore. If you’re going your way through the US casino centers, LA is definitely not to be missed.
