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.
Kenner, Jefferson Parish’s largest incorporated city, is the home of the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. Kenner’s Pontchartrain Center, located on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain, hosts events year round. You’ll also find casino gaming, outdoor parks and the historic district of Rivertown. Rivertown is a sixteen block historic district along the bank of the Mississippi River in the city of Kenner. This quaint locale includes the Mardi Gras Museum, the Children’s Castle, Cannes Brulee Native American Village, the Louis J. Roussel Jr. Planetarium & MegaDome Cinema, the Louisiana Toy Train Museum and more. Treat yourself to boutique shopping, fine dining and don’t miss the view of the Mississippi from LaSalle’s Landing.
