Casino getaways have been growing in popularity in recent years, especially after the huge expansion of the game of poker around 2003. While there are many destinations out there that will let you bet your pay check away, some are simply better than others. Here are our choices for best worldwide casino destinations.
While it may sound cliché, the must see gambling destination in the United States is still Las Vegas. Even if you aren’t a fan of gambling, you can still find plenty to see and do in Sin City. The Las Vegas Strip is easily where most of the tourist traffic is located, but first time visitors should also check out downtown Vegas and especially the Fremont Street Experience.
Another prime “gambling destination” is the Caribbean. Yes, we are serious. There are actually 114 casinos in the Caribbean and that includes the Atlantis Casino and Resort. Every January the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure kicks off with poker pros from around the world invading the island for some fun and poker. When you are not gambling, which will be often probably, you have all the fun of the islands ranging from getting a tan while watching yachts cruising in the Bahamas to awesome nightlife.
If you want to step back in time or feel like you’ve stepped into a James Bond movie, then Monte Carlo is your destination. The casino is widely known for it architecture, being designed by Paris Opera creator Charles Garnier. Set in a Beaux Arts style, the Monte Carlo is one of the more unique casinos in terms of structure. It is also unique in terms of style as it is one of the only casinos to enforce a dress code during most hours. In the evening, ladies are not allowed in anything less than a formal gown and men are allowed in no less than a nice suit.
These are just a few of the awesome gambling destinations around the world and we didn’t even include venues such as Macau and Italy. Keep in mind that when choosing a destination, choose one that offers you more to do than just gambling. This way you have something to do when you get tired of playing blackjack or when the cards just aren’t going your way. Have fun and good luck at the tables.
