The last two times I was in Tunica, my wife and  I stayed at Harrah’s. They have a couple good hotels a short shuttle ride to the main casino and you can easily catch another shuttle to some of the other casinos in the area. Its also close to a nice golf course if you like to golf.

If you have flexible dates, its good to visit starting on a Sunday night when the hotel room prices go down. If it is your first time, you will also want to get a Total Rewards Card if you want to gamble. You can earn some comps (free stuff) and other “rewards” which may not be much if you are not a big spender  but you might occasionally find a free night or two on it. My wife and I didn’t really spend that much our first time there (we may have spent more visiting Paula Deans 🙂  )but sure enough, a few months later, we got a couple nights free.

Now here comes the Atanta part… a few months ago Tunica finally got their airport going. Its small, but convenient and Harrahs quicky hooked up with AirTran. So if you live in Atlanta, this is a good time to hop a plane to Tunica and make use of one of the special deals they are offering.  You can find more here:
