Settled in the heel of the Louisiana boot, the city of Lake Charles is in the heart of creole cowboy country. Two hours from Houston and three hours from New Orleans, the area is rich in history with modern amenities and boasts an affordable tourist price point. There are four waterfront casino resorts with the same attractions you’ll find in bigger metro areas. The Creole Nature Trail, also known as the Louisiana Outback, provides access to the beautiful sights and wildlife the area has to offer. The entire community has events and traditions for the entire family.
