Chihuahua might not be your typical holiday destination in Mexico, but there’s still plenty to do here regardless.
The city has an approximate population of 825,000 people and is the capital of the Mexican state of the same name.
A good place to begin and to get your bearings would be the main square, the Plaza de Armas, where you can also find the Torre Legislativa de Chihuahua (the Legislative Tower of Chihuahua).
Also be sure to check out the Federal Palace of Chihuahua, while once the jail of Hidalgo, is currently a modern art museum, and the City Hall of Chihuahua, with its dancing fountains (a water show set to lights).
The casino has over 500 classic and video slot machines, coming in various denominations. Try one of the progressive or jackpot slots
. Who knows? That big hit might just be one spin away.
When you just need to satiate that bingo craving, electronic bingo is available. If you prefer to bet on the ponies as well as international sporting events, look for their on-site sportsbook.
There are no hotels on site. About 0.2 km from the casino, you can find the Hampton
Inn by Chihuahua City.
The hotel offers 190 rooms coming equipped with cable television and free high-speed internet access. Facilities on site include a fitness centre and a swimming pool.

For breakfasts, don’t forget about the hotel’s complimentary hot breakfast or ‘on the go’ breakfast bag. You can also find breakfast in the greasy-spoon-style venue Mi Café. Ask about their chilaquiles montados con huevos – corn tortillas with chilli

La Casa de los Milagros, indoors or out in the courtyard. Menu items include steaks, chicken, and salads. Live music is also performed Wednesdays through Sundays after 9 pm.
