There is a nice new hotel on the old Airbase, Parc England. It is next to a very nice restaurant, Bistro on the Bayou. I do not know whether they would be open for Thanksgiving. Usually one or more of our Piccadilly Restaurants is open for Thanksgiving. You might pick up a newspaper to see who is actually open on that day. Coushatta casino on road from Alex to Lake Charles, in Kinder, then several nice casinos in Lake Charles, on the Lake. Ft. Polk is about 1 hr west of Alexnadria, via Hwy 28W, and is about the same distance North of Lake Charles.

Thanks for your kind response.

Have booked aex rooms @ HI Express - so nice to work with - for Thursday & @ L'Auberge for Fri/Sat. Talked with Parc England - also very nice/understanding, but no food there on Thursday & rooms a bit more $$ - perhaps we can visit to eat before we leave the area - good reviews. Guessing our "food" situation will just be "luck of the draw" on Thanksgiving. I appreciate your input.

I figured the hotel would be pricey. Same guy owns Bistro, and that is expensive, but service & food are fantastic. Iam certain that if you pick up a newspaper, you will find some local restaurants serving Thanksgiving dinner. Maybe even try the paper's online website, www.thetowntalk.com

Many thanks for your sons' service, and your family's sacrifices for this great country. I hope they all return safley.

I had an excellent meal with my family at Bistro on the Bayou the day *after* Thanksgiving. You asked about casinos. There is Paragon Casino Resort in Marksville, which recently underwent a major renovation and that included their buffet dining room.
