I see another thread was posted about New Orleans today but I didn't want to piggy back on it. My husband has a convention to go to in June for work in New Orleans at the convention center. I have the chance to possibly tag along. I know nothing about New Orleans really but would like to go. I know there are casinos, but are they like in Vegas where they are all in one general area, or are they spread all out around the city? Are there even any casinos new the convention center, and where near the convention center would be a good place to stay?
