GOING FOR GOLD: Casino Charters & Lake Charles Tours with Sam’s Limousine!

The buzz of energy hums openly in the air, and anticipation crackles like static here, where Vegas meets the South between four major casinos and resorts from its waterfront perch in southwestern Louisiana along the Contraband Bayou.

Welcome to Lake Charles.

With only two legal casinos within the entire state of Texas, more and more Texans are crossing state over into Louisiana for some good, old fashioned gambling.

In fact, Houstonia Magazine wrote of their celebrated 2017 visit to local hotspot Ember Grille & Wine Bar: “Our waiter further confirmed our rite-of-passage theory: More than 80 percent of Ember’s customers, he estimated, hail from Houston.”

Louisiana casinos are long beloved by Houstonians, with Lake Charles fondly nicknamed “The Vegas of the Southeast.”

A popular spot for high rollers, Lake Charles continues to attract visitors from all over the world with its world-class amenities featuring Vegas-style gambling, premiere golfing, and world-renowned spas.

And one unexpected favorite? Lake Charles still has smoking-friendly casinos, despite a statewide ban on indoor smoking.

With so much to choose from, skip the long drive and instead opt for the luxury transportation of a stretch limousine. Or, for larger groups, upgrade to the mega limousine, or a party bus as it is more commonly known. If you have a larger group of people up to 56 passengers, then you can opt in for our state of the art charter buses for rent.

Enjoy five-star amenities like flat screen TVs, laser and fiber optic lighting, private climate control, and a full bar with glassware, all of which allow you the opportunity to experience the very best that Lake Charles has to offer – both on and off the casino floor.

And still there is much to do outside the casino walls – Lake Charles is surprisingly family-friendly, despite what one might think.

With a safe and trusted driver from Sam’s Limousine in the lead, your group can split up to enjoy all of Lake Charles’ local cultural delights.


Live entertainment continues to draw big name acts for exclusive shows. Lake Charles will welcome 3 Doors Down, Clay Walker, and Kool and the Gang, just in March alone. Cajun food fans won’t want to miss the Southwest Louisiana Boudin Trail, and Louisiana Spirits Distillery, the craft distillery in town, offers tours every day of the week except Sunday. Don’t forget to get your milk punch, a local specialty!

For the kids in tow, hop back in the limo and check out the USS Orleck, an actual World War II battleship offering onboard tours. Bathing beauties and nature enthusiasts can head to Holly Beach, also once known as the Cajun Riviera.

For even more excitement, visit Pintail Wildlife Trail for an actual, real-life swamp safari through gator-infested marshes. The park offers a partial walking trail, as well as a driving path you can enjoy from the comfort of your limo or party bus.

There are over 75 festivals in Lake Charles each year, with the rare but exciting opportunity to experience authentic French Creole zydeco music.

But why do I need professional transportation for my casino trip?
