Loose Slots on the Ri
Are you into gambling and want to test your luck on easy street, Louisiana? Look no further than the river because this city is host to not one, not two, but three floating riverboat casinos. Nestled along the east bank, the Horseshoe, Boomtown, and Diamond Jack’s stand out like pillars of gaming fun. If betting at the tables is not your thing, then head to Harrah’s Louisiana Downs for quality horse racing action. You can play the slots while your horse sprints to the finish. Either way, you can plan on having a good time.
While playing the slots and drinking the night away might be a draw for some people, there is still plenty to do gambling is not your thing. Take a stroll to the Louisiana Boardwalk for premier outlet shopping. There are hundreds of name-brand stores offering clearance-level discounts and slashing prices weekly. The place is so massive you could easily waste a day just wandering around and treating yourself to those new shoes or bag you have had your eye on recently. Take a breather and grab some ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery if you need a break.
Red River Revel
The Red River Revel is the place to go in late October when you want to do a little booth shopping as you peruse the local arts and crafts and nosh on some fair food. Located right on the banks of the Red River, it is a great way to spend an evening with the family, enjoy rides, or just relax to the sounds of children playing. If you get someone to watch the little ones, mom and dad can also go enjoy a beer or glass of wine while listening to local musicians jam out on stage.
