In terms of size, the Horseshoe Casino wouldn't look out of place in Las Vegas or Atlantic City. It boasts 1,700 slot machines and 70 tables where you can play poker, blackjack, craps, and roulette. But in place of the neon-hued glitz of those other gaming meccas, the property offers warm wood paneling, golden padded chairs, and hanging chandeliers. Still more entertainment can be found at Horseshoe's sister properties, Harrah’s Tunica and the Tunica Roadhouse. A free shuttle service travels back and forth between the two every 30 minutes.
Gaming is a primary focus here, but there's a wealth of other amenities at the hotel, including retail shops and an outdoor pool. Dining options range from Jack Binion's Steak House to family-style Asian fare at Noodles.
Robinsonville, Mississippi: Gaming Hub 45 Minutes from Memphis
Located 45 minutes from Memphis, Robinsonville is home to nine separate casinos. In addition to providing an abundance of gaming opportunities, these pleasure palaces constitute the area's nexus for fine dining and nightlife. For even more of the latter, head into Memphis, the birthplace of blues, rock ’n’ roll, and soul. All of these genres can be heard nightly in the bars on Beale Street. Blues guitar legend B.B. King still puts in an appearance a few times a year at his establishment. Music lovers should also make a pilgrimage to Sun Studios, where Elvis dropped his first track, and Graceland, where he sampled his first peanut-butter-and-Twinkie sandwich.
