Mardi Gras Casino & Resort

Charleston, West Virginia is an interesting blend of college town and historical hotspot. Some 9 colleges and major trade schools are located within ten miles of Charleston, and the area is rich with cultural sites significant to the Revolutionary and Civil Wars.

Mardi Gras Casino & Resort is the result of a 2007 law allowing casino gambling within West Virginia lines, under certain restrictions. Mardi Gras was built alongside an existing (and quite popular) live greyhound racing track. The theme, as the name implies, is New Orleans’ Mardi Gras, with all the bright colors and flash the name implies.
