Lesbian Travel: Dinah Shore Las Vegas Debuts

While it is true that the online casino industry has overtaken the more traditional brick and mortar casino industry in terms of convenience, there are still plenty of great real world casino destinations worth travelling to, at least once in your lifetime. Of course nothing beats the speed and convenience of playing online casino games like slots, baccarat, roulette, or blackjack. But, at the same time, nothing beats the sheer excitement of booking your tickets and travelling to an exotic casino resort somewhere in the world.

The modern world of casino gambling is quite different from the old days, when mobsters ran the show and the number of quality destinations was rather more limited. Today, you can book your tickets for any number of casino resort destinations scattered throughout the world, including far flung places like New Zealand and South Africa. However, when it comes to going really big, nothing beats a trip to Las Vegas or Atlantic City in the USA, or any number of casino resorts in Macau, China.

Las Vegas, Nevada

Say what you will about Las Vegas and its former glory days, but this is still considered by many to be the premier casino destination in the world. Many new sites in the UK will have some great competitions for a chance to win a trip to Las Vegas. Even if you don’t love the idea of travelling to Vegas, visiting at least once in your life is on most bucket lists. In fact, you don’t even have to be into casino games to go there. The famous Vegas Strip is a tourist attraction in its own right and many visitors go there just to see the shows, the lights and the incredible fountains. If you are serious about gambling at a top Las Vegas casino resort, you really can’t go wrong with the Venetian. The Venetian is the largest casino resort in Las Vegas and covers a staggering 243,684 square feet, with more gaming machines, tables, restaurants and bars than virtually any other casino in Las Vegas.

Gay Travel: Betting on Atlantic City

Author: , August 3rd, 2015

Atlantic City

It hasn’t been an easy couple of years for Atlantic City, the world-famous seaside resort area that hugs the southeastern coast of New Jersey. Headline after headline spelled D.O.O.M in bright casino lighting for the city, but just as the lights began to fade to black, Atlantic City’s resident casinos and population began to pave a new path–with or without gambling.

The death-knell came after casinos began falling like dominos. Probably the biggest shock came after Revel, a $2.4 billion casino, shut its doors. Once seen as the saving grace for the boardwalk and the area’s dying gambling culture, the casino’s ultra-high cost and delayed opening, alleged bad business decisions, and a major lack of community integration/understanding, killed the casino off within two years. This was in addition to the closing of the Showboat Casino Hotel, a 23-year-old hotel; Atlantic Club, a 34-year-old institution; Trump Plaza, a 24-old, though recently renovated property; all of which made headlines spelling the demise of the once-great vacationland. As news spread across the nation, Atlantic City gained a Detroit-like reputation (an analogy used by the city’s openly gay and openly republican mayor, Don Guardian).

In the wake of all these doors closing and the negative press attention, there are things happening now that signal the odds are looking more in favor of Atlantic City. With a new understanding of the changing travel market, the city is focusing its marketing efforts to attract younger patrons as well as LGBT visitors, emphasizing new developments in entertainment, the beach, dining, large events, and an accepting community that’s embracing Atlantic City’s new path.

New Jersey’s seaside gambling resort is taking its show on the road, targeting partiers in Philadelphia with a mobile nightclub that will bring 300 of them back to Atlantic City to experience the resort’s nightspots. It’s also launching social media efforts to recruit fun-seekers to come to Atlantic City.

The outreach is part of the $30 million annual campaign by the Atlantic City Alliance to promote the resort as more than just a gambling center.

“Atlantic City is a lively destination all year round,” said Liza Cartmell, the group’s president. “These promotions are designed with specific social media components included in order to showcase all that there is to do here even during the coldest months. We encourage visitors to enjoy the indoor pools, spas, restaurants, shopping, nightclubs, entertainment and gambling, and share their experiences over social media with their friends.”
