From the early days of gambling in San Diego to the new wave of modern gambling at the Valley View Casino Center, the growing trend has been toward a more sophisticated atmosphere. In fact, some of the shows have been likened to shows that are found in Las Vegas or Atlantic City. The attractions, amenities and high stakes gambling opportunities have attracted gamblers from all walks of life.
The Valley View Casino Center in San Diego is a perfect venue for game shows, live entertainment and bingo. There are also a number of dining options and shopping facilities located throughout the area. As for the number of hotels within the vicinity, all of them are situated in close proximity to one another and all of them offer complete comfort.
Bingo is the most popular game played in this region. It is also the one with the largest betting pools. Another popular game is roulette, which is played at the adjacent Bally’s casino. The casino floor is always abuzz with activity with players trying to win big.
The new wave of casinos along the North Embarcadero along the southern portion of the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego was designed to satisfy a very specific need. The developers were concerned that Las Vegas was becoming out of date and that the residents of the neighboring communities and those living in condominiums in the area would be bored with the noise, flash and hustle. So they set out to build a location that offered much more than just a place to gamble, but also shopping, dining and nightlife to go along with it.
All of the amenities, including the gaming areas, are located near other amenities and the gambling floor is not too far away from the hotel. Those that want to get there from the hotels can easily do so by taking the Muni bus. However, the Munibus can be expensive and the Golden Gate Bridge has recently been closed for construction and it can be inconvenient.
The combination of the outdoor games, beach and water activities, nightlife and night clubs all nestled into the heart of downtown San Diego makes the Valley View Casino Center a great place to live. The hotels include some of the best and most luxurious accommodations available on the west coast. The proximity to such cultural offerings as the Balboa Park Zoo, San Diego Museum of Natural History and many of the more prestigious shopping centers make it easy to access all of the entertainment you desire.
There are many popular tours that visit the area and are a must for any visitor. Because the casinos were designed as a tourist destination, visitors are advised to be well informed about the gamblers in the area before taking part in any of the different tours. Even with the knowledge of the gamblers, some of the tours are still fun.
The evening entertainment varies from regular blues and country to the more experimental and in some cases, the more popular concerts are held in the evening, particularly during weekends. The locations and dates of the events can vary by casino depending on what is popular at the time. The area is truly vibrant and convenient for all types of people and the amenities that surround it should be commended for such a prime location.
