Lake Charles might not be a famous U.S. city. However, it’s a pretty charming one—not too big, not too small, but the ideal size to spend a few days and explore around. This city in southwest Louisiana is a major educational, cultural, and industrial center. It’s located on the banks of Calcasieu River and borders Prien Lake and Lake Charles. Thanks to all these waterways, pine and oak trees thrive well around here. Lake Charles is also home to a number of museums and cultural centers, and several large casinos, hence, the construction of posh hotels with or near casinos. There is a lot to see and do, so why not check out these top 12 Airbnbs in Lake Charles, Louisiana, to have a home base during your next visit?
