Although many Lake Charles Area trips revolve around large casino resorts and vibrant nightlife, there is still plenty to see and do apart from hitting the jackpot. Historic districts of the area's six cities showcase classic examples of early 1900s architecture, but to really step back in time tour the museums, such as the one in the city of Lake Charles interpreting the state's iconic festival of Mardi Gras. For the story of sulfur mining, visit the aptly named town of Sulphur, and to learn more about railroads, head to Dequincy. With over 75 annual festivals, there is a good chance you'll catch a party during your stay in Lake Charles Area. To revel in the area's natural beauty, sign up for a swamp tour. When using our United States trip builder tool to make an itinerary online, Lake Charles Area holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
