Casino on the Beach

Gulfport. A casino city on the Gulf of Mexico state of Mississippi…

There are two reasons to go on a trip to the state of Mississippi in the city of Gulf of Mexico. The first reason is resort. Sun, heat and beaches.

The second reason is for the amateur. Gulfport is a casino town. I was going to a resort town, even though I lived in a casino hotel. I didn’t go to the casino. I went in, I went through it, but I didn’t “casino.” Island View Casino is like all other American casinos. Same slot machines, same poker tables and the same people (very strange and very under seventy).

Gulfport casinos are such miniature versions of Las Vegas.

There is no city in Gulfport, Mississippi. No, it does, but not in our traditional sense of the city. It’s stretched out, scattered, far apart, no pedestrians, you’re nothing without a car. But what beaches here – clean, boundless, deserted!

No trace of the 2005 Katrina, the most devastating storm in U.S. history, can be seen anywhere. It’s said that the federal government has allocated very large sums of money to recover from the hurricane.

Now the city is living and trying to thrive – thanks to the numerous casinos and the huge port through which fruits from around the world go to the American market. Yes, it’s the largest port in the United States.

The coolest attraction in Gulfport is this white lighthouse, which can be seen on all the “With a Bummer from Gulfport” postcards. That says a lot, doesn’t it? 🙂.


Another, equally Mississippi simple attraction is Ship Island, a small island in the Gulf of Mexico, about 45 minutes by boat from Gulfport. The southern coast of the island is full of sun loungers and umbrellas, looking out into the ocean, while the northern coast is wild.

If it weren’t for the scorching sun and my desire to see everything in a couple of days, I’d be hanging in port.

But I didn’t have the sketchbook with me, and my desire to see everything was overcome by my desire to relax. So I press the camera shutter release button and go on.

99.99% of tourists in Gulfport are Americans, casino visitors…

Atlantic City – City of Monopoly and East Coast Las Vegas

Walking around Atlantic City, it’s unforgivable not to look at the casino. Although the halls are at their peak in the evening, no one will kick you out during the day. And in a half-empty casino to stay somehow more comfortable, no chaos and excitement. And you can hide from the heat of July.

Entrance is free. True, there is one nuance: you can sit at the vending machines for people under 21 years. In the United States, full adulthood comes at this age.

It’s worth visiting the casino to get to know the local public. If you think it’s only the thick sums in elegant suits and their ladies in chic dresses and diamond necklaces that come here, you watch too many movies. In fact, it’s full of the simplest sloppy Americans, often people of venerable age. They slowly throw tokens into the “one-armed bandit” and drop their levers in the hope that the drums will line up in a winning combination.

Who knows, in a couple of years it’ll be sounding all over the world from every gramophone.

The Atlantic City gaming market is going through a bad time. First of all, it’s been affected by the crisis. Secondly, the state authorities have decided to deprive the city of the monopoly on gambling business, which stretched out almost 40 years. Therefore, some casinos had to close down, there were fewer visitors, and the excitement somewhat calmed down. However, the Atlantic City that I met, I liked it a lot. It’s got something of its own, original and unique.


Lopesan Costa Bávaro Resort, Spa & Casino

Lopesan Costa Bávaro Resort, Spa & Casino

The 5-star complex Lopesan Costa Bávaro Resort, Spa & Casino will start its work in May next year. It has become known what it will be like: its own brewery, original rooms and a huge swimming pool on the ocean.

Lopesan Costa Bávaro Resort, Spa & Casino will open its doors to its first holidaymakers in May next year. It should be noted that the beginning of the development and construction was launched by the Canary group Lopesan in the summer of 2017, and the complex is being built at an incredibly fast pace.

It is already known that the hotel will start its work two months earlier than originally planned.

The hotel was designed by the famous American company HKS.

Lopesan Costa Bávaro Resort, Spa & Casino will offer its guests 1025 rooms overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, with pools and landscaping. The complex will present an original symbiosis of functionality and aesthetics.

One of the important details of the future hotel will be Infinity Pool, where the American studio EDSA is working on landscaping, creating an original modern design. According to the plan – the beach zone is introduced into the interior of the complex, while building its own horizon line.

On the territory of Lopesan Costa Bávaro Resort will also have its own botanical garden, which includes many species of tropical plants. The owners of the complex wished to create the illusion of “pictures and recreation dreams” for all their clients.

The complex will occupy an area of 30 thousand square meters. Lopesan Costa Bávaro Resort will offer tourists to visit a casino, theater, disco, gym, wellness center, exclusive brand shops, commercial boulevard and restaurants.

Gastronomy will also be an important part of the hotel’s future, but it is still a secret which countries of the world will be represented in the Lopesan Costa Bávaro Resort and which chefs will cooperate with the hotel.

However, it is already known that the hotel will have its own brewery.
