Bay Area Casinos and Hotels: Gaming and Tourism in the Golden State
As a state that relies heavily on tourism, California is always looking to attract more visitors. According to The Desert Sun, the Golden State and Mexico recently entered a memorandum of understanding to boost their respective tourism industries. Visit California, the state’s tourism organization, hopes that this agreement would result in a 19 percent increase in air arrivals by 2016:
This is an exciting win-win tourism partnership for both California and Mexico,” said Visit California president and CEO Caroline Beteta in a statement. “For California, Mexico is the largest source of international visitors, with 7.4 million visitors in 2013 contributing $2.9 billion to California’s economy. This is a smart partnership that will set us up for ongoing economic success.
This early, quite a number of tourists from Mexico have expressed great interest in visiting the Bay Area, Los Angeles, and San Diego in the near future. Indeed, it was only a matter of time before Mexico, one of the world’s top gambling markets, discovered California’s various charms as a gaming and tourism destination.
At any rate, those looking for great Bay Area tourism destinations will do well with the first-class lodging, dining, and Bay area entertainment options at a place like Twin Pine Casino & Hotel in Middletown. For instance, such a facility regularly hosts stand-ups, concerts, and live jams, among other things.
Wine connoisseurs get to taste the best wines this side of Napa Valley, while anyone who’s looking for a good time can look forward to the exciting live performances on weekends. Such an establishment also provides memorable five-star fine dining experiences. Considering California’s status as a cultural melting pot, guests can expect to find a wide array of global culinary choices that include Italian, Japanese, and, of course, Mexican.
Meanwhile, avid casino gamers also get to play at one of the luckiest Bay Area casinos, where several players have recently won big payouts. Whether trying one’s luck at the slot machine, taking part in a no-limit Texas hold ‘em table game, or simply unwinding at the cozy bar, the fun never stops at Northern California casinos like the Twin Pine Casino & Hotel.
