Cajun Girlfriends’ Getaway
So, you come home from work and call up an old friend. After twirling your store bought “boxed” spaghetti on your fork and watching it fall off in a limp splat on your plate for the fourth time, you realize that you (A. need a vacation B. need better food C. would like to bring your old friend with you!) Has this ever happened to you?
Think of a place where you can take a stroll downtown and run across some interesting shops from trendy jeans to antiques and knickknacks. That place is closer than you think. In downtown Lake Charles, Louisiana and several blocks over in the cottage shop district, delightful stores exist where you and your gal pals can find unique items including Louisiana food products. Also downtown, there is a variety of food to pique the interest of most palates, and Cajun restaurants are found throughout Southwest Louisiana. When you are here, you can also find Cajun recipes and cookbooks that you can take with you and try in your kitchen back home. Yummm!
For nightlife, L’Auberge Casino Resort offers a wide array of restaurants featuring scrumptious steaks to “gotta have it” gelato. The live entertainment options will keep you dancing long into the night. Follow it up with massages, facials, and the works at Spa du Lac in the morning. After a massage (or two) float down a lazy river and catch up on some girl talk.
Other exciting casino adventures can be had at the Isle of Capri Casino in Westlake or Delta Downs Racetrack, Casino & Hotel. Each property has a myriad of fantastic restaurants, steaming buffets and live entertainment options. At the Isle, show off your inner rock star by singing karaoke with your friends every Wednesday night. Relive hits of your youth, and perform them—live! Get your adrenaline going during Thoroughbred racing season at Delta Downs. Watch both horse and jockey gallop and lunge down the track for that coveted photo finish!
