Foxwoods Resort Casino

When you enter Foxwoods, you enter a world unto itself, with a stunning variety of dining, entertainment, shopping and gaming options. Choose a restaurant (David Burke Prime or Paragon on the high end; Hard Rock Café or California Pizza Kitchen for casual) and parlay it with a show or concert. Dance 'til late, try your hand at blackjack, even bowl a string or two – the casino’s got you covered. Spend the night at one of the resort’s four hotels – the views from the upper floors of the Grand Pequot Tower seem to encompass all of southeastern Connecticut.

Mohegan Sun

Mohegan Sun Casino

Now it’s on to Mohegan Sun Casino. Check in to your room and begin your stay with a visit to the spa to work out the kinks from your night of dancing and day of golf. Many dining options await at Mohegan Sun, Michael Jordan’s Steak House, Bobby’s Burger Palace and Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville among them. Entertainment might include a boxing match, basketball game or concert by Brad Paisley, Straight No Chaser or Celtic Woman (all scheduled this winter) in the Arena, or a free concert from the likes of Eddie Money or The Marshall Tucker Band in the Wolf Den.

Tanger Outlets at Foxwoods


Still feeling lucky? First, there's an awesome selection of boutiques at both Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods filled with the latest styles and goods. Then, try the Tanger Outlets at Foxwoods. Here you’ll find more than 80 stores, including Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, Nike and Gap Factory Outlet. On the way home, stop and look for bargains at two Connecticut outlet centers, both right off I-95. In Clinton, Clinton Crossing offers 70 designer outlets, including Kate Spade New York, Under Armour and J. Crew. In neighboring Westbrook, Tanger Outlet Center includes Rockport, Timberland and Williams-Sonoma among its dozens of stores.
