Lake Charles is a blend of contrasts from the abundant wildlife and the great outdoors to the luxurious surroundings of area casino resorts, with a Cajun/Creole twist. Summer months offer lazy rivers with swim-up bars or paddle boarding along the area’s many waterways, shelling along Gulf beaches with the warm breeze off the coast, or bird and alligator sightings along Pintail Wildlife Drive at the Cameron Prairie National Wildlife Refuge.
In town, you can experience the thrill of two world-class casino resorts side-by-side: the Golden Nugget Lake Charles and L’Auberge Casino Resort. Both offer golf courses, spa facilities, restaurants, live entertainment, and award-winning chefs, not to mention jaw-droppingly gorgeous pools. As the warm, fragrant winds shift to crisp fall breezes, heated pools, hot tubs, or fire-pits on the beach add a hint of magic to the cooler months as the thundering sound of thoroughbreds rock the track at Delta Downs.
