Louisiana boasts several large casino resorts. Bus tours to these casinos are popular in nearby Texas, where gambling has not been legalized, as well as neighboring states like Arkansas and Mississippi. These bus tours can take visitors to a one-day visit of the casino or include an overnight stay in the popular resorts.
OK Tours offers round-trip bus tours departing in San Antonio, Texas, and arriving at the Coushatta Casino in Kinder, Louisiana, or the Paragon Casino Resort in Marksville, Louisiana. The tour company has one turnaround service and two overnight stays. The turnaround service departs from San Antonio on Friday and arrives at the Paragon Casino Resort the following day. Visitors can spend the day at the casino before returning to San Antonio that evening. The first overnight service departs every Sunday and arrives at the Coushatta Casino, where they will spend the night in the Coshatta Grand Hotel adjacent to the casino. The second service also departs on Sundays, and arrives at the Paragon Casino, where visitors will stay at the Paragon Resort's hotel.
