Lake Charles has plenty of entertainment options for the Christmas season.  It always “snows” during the Christmas Under the Oaks Festival, and you can experience a lighted boat parade and fireworks at the Light Up the Lake Christmas Festival.

Plus, it’s no secret that Southwest Louisiana is a premier gaming destination. Check out Delta Downs Racetrack, Casino & Hotel, the Isle of Capri Casino Hotel, and L’Auberge Casino Resort. The Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino in Lake Charles opens this December.
