Escape to San Diego for the Holidays

Lady luck has a spot at the table for you.

San Diego is renowned for its world-class attractions and beautiful beaches, what isn’t as well known is that San Diego also offers Las Vegas style casino gaming.

Just 30-45 minutes from downtown, San Diego's casinos provide 24/7 Las Vegas-style action and entertainment, while some offer full-service resort facilities, popular outlet centers, luxury spas, golf courses and museums, along with showrooms and live entertainment.

Developed by Native Americans on their tribal lands, San Diego's casinos reflect another facet of the rich cultural diversity in this region. With a thriving community of 18 tribes, San Diego has the largest tribal concentration of any single county in the U.S.—many of them contributing in the region’s successful gaming business. While the casinos help the tribes to be financially self-sufficient, they also enable tribal governments to support charities and social programs serving the entire San Diego community.

What to Love

  • Many of the casinos offer value-priced, all-you-can eat buffets.
  • While children are not allowed in the gaming areas, most casinos allow children in the buffets, dining rooms, pools, shops, entertainment venues and other areas.
  • Many of the casinos feature top shelf headliner entertainment including musical and comic performers.
  • Many of the casinos offer bus service throughout Southern California. Contact the casino of interest for more information.

What to Know
