Celebrity entertainers, gourmet dining, luxury accommodations and spas turn Mississippi's casino resorts into memorable, fun-filled destinations.
"Dinner and a show" takes on a whole new meaning when you're talking about the casino resorts that line the Mississippi Gulf Coast and liven things up in other destinations such as Choctaw and Tunica. It means dining in a gourmet restaurant, then taking in a performance by a headliner such as Aretha Franklin, Vince Gill, Rick Springfield or Travis Tritt, all without having to leave the resort.
Before a show at the Arena at Golden Moon Hotel & Casino in Choctaw, you can dine on steak or seafood at Phillip M's in the neighboring Silver Star Hotel & Casino. Millennium Theatre at Gold Strike Casino Resort is one of the top entertainment venues in Tunica, and the resort's Chicago Steakhouse ranks as one of the area's most popular restaurants.
But you don't have to spring for a headliner show and white-tablecloth dining to enjoy an evening or a weekend at one of the state's casino resorts. At Ameristar Casino Hotel Vicksburg, a rack of baby back ribs in Bourbon's BBQ & Steaks sets the perfect mood for listening to music in the Bottleneck Blues Bar. And you can't have much more fun than dancing Friday and Saturday nights away at Road House Live in Biloxi's Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
Plush amenities and fabulous pools add that extra touch to resort hotel stays. One of the top luxury spots along the Mississippi Gulf Coast is Biloxi's Beau Rivage Resort & Casino. It features a tropical pool with a view of the Gulf of Mexico, a spa, 10 restaurants and rooms with marble baths. You'll also find marble baths at Gold Strike Casino Resort in Tunica. And when it comes to pools, the Balinese-inspired beauty at Island View Casino Resort in Gulfport is well worth a visit.
A good spa makes for a luxurious visit. The treatments at Bellissimo Spa & Salon make for a heavenly stay at Harrah's Tunica. In Choctaw, you can pamper yourself at The Spa and Salon at Pearl River Resort. Or you can indulge in a full day of beauty at The Spa at Beau Rivage in Biloxi.
No matter which resort area you choose – whether it's along the Gulf Coast, at a casino hotel along the Mississippi River, or at Pearl River Resort in Choctaw or Heidelberg – you can't lose. The entertainment, dining and amenities make you a winner every time.
