Two things I have very limited knowledge of are casinos and bachelor parties. I’ve been to my share of Bachelorette parties but those are way more aesthetic, planned, and fancy that their male counterpart. And my casino knowledge comes from walking through the one at Atlantis, one trip to Vegas, and cruise ships. But apparently, a casino in North Carolina is one of the top spots for a bachelor party. Who knew? This is according to research from our friends at So yes, every location on this list is a casino. But even still, having such a highly-ranked casino in our area is pretty crazy when places like Vegas and Atlantic City exist.

They created an index by looking at key factors such as the number of machines, tables, restaurants, and hotel rooms, as well as by taking into account social listening data. Doing this they came up with what considers to top casinos in the US. And sitting right there at number 5? One of North Carolina’s own. It’s right in the middle of two Vegas landmarks even I have heard of. So I’d say this is a big deal for sure. You can keep reading to see the top 10 including the North Carolina casino perfect for your bachelor party. Read the full analysis by here.
