Mohegan Sun Mystic Reviews
Mohegan Sun Casino Jan 03, 2009
Just a 20-minute-car drive away from the Marriott Mystic Hotel in Groton, CT, is Mohegan Sun Casino, "world-class gaming, great entertainment, endless dining choices, sensational shopping, luxurious hotel accomodations, non-stop nightlife and a relaxing spa", as their brochure tells us. If you arrive by car, you can park it at a huge parking lot, and a shuttle brings you to the casino's entrance (and back).
The reason I was here, was a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert in the Mohegan Sun Arena. But the whole place is impressive. A huge building with all the facilities mentioned above, and since it is owned by an indian tribe (can't recall now which) it is decorated beautifully in that style. They chose names like "Casino of the earth" and "Casino of the sky", a theater is called "Wolf den". The interior truly is breathtaking!
The Mohegan Sun Arena is relatively small, with 10000 seats. But that's okay, since you have a better view at the stage than in stadiums. I do have to mention that the concert was great - after all these years the guys still rock!
Mohegan Sun is pure entertainment, 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. You can choose between all kinds of gambling, shopping or dancing. There are restaurants and bars, ice cream and coffee shops. A perfect fun-getaway.
