    I have a Caesars air package for January being offered to me. I have never been to tunica and the idea of visiting new interesting places excites me. I have only been to Vegas 3 times in my life but I find the shows, entertainment and the entire scene to be very cool. They have a television play up offer the same days as the tunica offer. I have free air to Vegas as well. Which one would you choose? Something new and exciting or something you know you love?

    Tunica will be boring compared to Vegas. You could visit Graceland in Memphis. 99 out of 100 times I would pick Vegas

    We always drive to Tunica, if I had to fly I would pick Vegas. Now if the choice was between Vegas and Biloxi it would be a tougher decision.

    BUT - with the limited number of shows and entertainment options in Vegas - the match up is much different right now.

    As said, in Tunica you have very limited options. Horseshoe is next door to Gold Strike, so a little bit to do.

    As said, it is not Vegas.

    As to Biloxi, I would go there for the Beau, but not for Harrahs Gulf Coast. Rather basic, but okay for a day.

    In the pandemic, Tunic could be a good choice. few people in the casino or anywhere.

    IMHO, if you're an mLifer, Las Vegas definitely. You are "penalized" heavily for casino spend outside of Las Vegas

    It just depends what nights the trip is, Tunica casinos are still busy on the weekends.

    Tunica is a weekday itinerary.

    Depends on current restrictions. I just came back from Vegas and the only time the mask comes off is in restaurants. Many restaurants are closed or have reduced hours and limited menus. There was also a lot of concern that the bars might close again. For me the Tunica trip is shorter flight time and nonstop, which I can’t get to Vegas now.

    I’m not a fan of Tunica. I envisioned the feel similar to Biloxi, but it just felt like large locals casinos. I would not recommend it. Would get the same experience going to your local.

    (full disclosure I only visited gold strike and horseshoe )

    Didn't really run into exciting in Tunica. Tunica had better drink service, but otherwise LV beats it. I also wasn't impressed with the Horseshoe bounce back offers if that matters.
    Though I wasn't too crazy about the larger Thu-Sat crowd (a big LA contingent) in LV a few weeks ago.
    You might be bored in Tunica, a rental car/driving would be a must I'd say. Fairly flat boring scenery. (Casinos are in farm/flood lands)
