Many gaming enthusiasts know Louisiana as "Las Vegas South." The comparison makes sense given the sheer number and size of casinos, along with all the associated entertainment within our borders. But gaming is not just about casinos here. With four horse-racing tracks in the state, the ponies get their fair share of attention, too. Whether you're splitting sevens in Shreveport/Bossier, rolling dice between tee times in Lake Charles, cheering on your horse in Opelousas or testing your luck in downtown New Orleans, you'll have a ball gaming in Louisiana.
Located in St. Bernard Parish just down river from New Orleans, Chalmette is home to the Chalmette Battlefield. The battlefield is the site of the 1815 Battle of New Orleans which is considered the last great battle in the War of 1812. Visit the battlefield and monuments and then head over to Rocky and Carlos for their world-famous macaroni and cheese.
