To try your own hand at poker or any of the other casino games in Tunica, you’ll need to fly into Memphis, which is approximately 40 minutes north of Tunica. (technically, the casinos are in Robinsonville, but all the signs, literature, and maps say Tunica, so don’t get confused.) The Tunica Cab & Shuttle (888-527-7272) is available from the airport, but you’re better off renting a car and driving yourself so you can casino-hop.
All nine casinos can be found at the following website, where you can make reservations online or get contact numbers: www.tunicamiss.org/casinos.asp.
River Bend Links (888-539-9990) and Cottonwoods Golf Course (800-946-4946, ext. 6078) are available for those seeking tee times. For entertainment and child care, check out Kids Quest near the Grand Casino (662-357-6060).
