I forgot to mention Mt. Pleasant in Michigan or better known as Soaring Eagle Casino.

It's a rather big casino for an 'indian-type' casino and resort. Mt.Pleasant is relatively big-like (city) for being in the middle of Michigan.

The Oregon coast has some Indian casinos. Some laughingly call it the Las Vegas of the north. There is one in North Bend and they are adding on to that one right now. Florence has a small one but I understand they are rebuilding to make it larger. Lincoln City has one or 2 casinios.

You can drive up the coast and stop in one city at a time to gamble.

Any states planning on opening up to Nevada style casinos?

Most states seem to limit it to either Indian tribes or just a few casino's (like on the river)

Both of these casinos are owned by The Shoshone-Bannock tribe. The larger one is 9 miles north of Pocatello in Fort Hall. Plans were announced last year to build a new hotel/resort casino on the site, but the economy may have delayed it. There is a newer, smaller casino near Blackfoot, about 18 miles north of Pocatello.

Oregon and Washington have numerous Indian casinos, the newest and most luxurious near the town of Snoqualmie, off I-90, about 25 miles east of Seattle. I visited earlier this month, it is quite nice.

Nevada is the only state that has fully legalized gambling.

Seriously, your best bet is probably Vegas. In terms of casinos + night life + young people, no where else compares.

Most river cities and reserves only have a few casinos, but not much in terms of other things to do.
