California casino tour

Casinos and Resorts in Northern California 

Let’s face it, when it comes to casino trips, two names dominate. Reno and Vegas. 

It is true that Nevada is the casino mecca of the United States, but that doesn’t mean you have to head that far east into the desert to do some gambling or enjoy the amenities of a fine casino. Northern California has some excellent options. 

Even better, if you’re in the Bay Area, casino bus charters are affordable, convenient, and fun. Relax for a few hours as our crew takes care of the transportation, and you’ll arrive ready to dominate blackjack or just bask by the pool with a cool drink. 

Here are some highlights of Northern California casinos Whitecastle Tours charters to from the Bay Area. Contact us today to book your trip!
