MIDWEST CASINOS DAY TRIPS
We have recently taken enjoyable gambling trips to Rhythm City Casino in Davenport Iowa and Catfish Bend Casino in Burlington Iowa. They usually include transportation, discounted or free lunch and some money on a card for around $19. We travel to the casinos on Peoria Charter Coach. We generally pass around candy and snacks and play bingo. These trips are a lot of fun.
