While Southeastern Connecticut is known for its colorful scenery, family-friendly locations, and historical sites it is also a destination for world-renowned casinos! One of my favorite after work spots is Mohegan Sun Casino. Known for their wide array of slots and table games, the trip “From Mystic to Mohegan” is just 25 minutes. This beautiful estate also showcases 40 premiere restaurants/bars and unique shops.
Dinner with a View
If you are looking for a romantic dinner with that special someone, look no further and take them to Tuscany! Celebrity chef Todd English brings the flavor of Tuscany right to Connecticut and the location is unbeatable. The terrace is located just under Mohegan’s own 55-foot indoor waterfall. Feeling a little bit more casual? Bobby’s Burger Palace uses fresh ingredients while creating fun and delicious twists on classic dishes. Each dish is a nod to the varied regions throughout the U.S.
Fun for Everyone
One of my most cherished memories of Mohegan Sun is the excitement that my brother and I would feel as kids going to the arcade called Cyber Quest! It is a great environment for kids of any age (ages 6 months to 12 years) and something that the family can do together. From the indoor rock wall to family-friendly video games and the Karaoke Star Stage, Kids Quest and Cyber Quest make Mohegan Sun a destination for all ages!
Put on Your Dancing Shoes
Mohegan Sun is host to a variety of special events throughout the year. Events such as BBQ Festivals, Whiskey Tastings, Food Truck Events are a perfect reason to make the trip “From Mystic to Mohegan”! When thinking of the casino one of the first things that may enter your mind is the nightlife. Rest assured, Mohegan Sun does not fall flat with the perfect spot to break out your dancing shoes! Be sure to stop at either Avalon nightclub or Mist for a nightlife experience unlike any other! Avalon often hosts notable DJ’s and celebrity appearances. You never who you could end up partying alongside! Vista Lounge, which boasts a 60,000 watt sound system, also just happens to be located under the sky of the world’s largest indoor planetarium. If you are looking for nightlife but clubbing isn’t your thing, I would highly recommend the Comix. Comix is the perfect spot for a drink and a bite to eat while watching your favorite stand up comedian.

When booking your stay at The Whaler’s Inn in the cozy town of Mystic, the trip “From Mystic to Mohegan is a great way to experience the unique and eccentric charm of the Mohegan Native tribe. The casino is versatile and modern yet still soaked with the history and tradition.

Sue is a newer addition to our front desk team but she is certainly not new to the Mystic area. Although her home will always be the next town over in Groton be sure to ask her about more area recommendations! When not at work or partying it up at Mohegan Sun, her favorite place to go is hiking at Bluff Point just a short drive from the Inn.
