Arrival at my destination

The plane landed in Memphis, Tennessee and I hopped on a shuttle to take me down to Tunica, Mississippi (about 40 miles south of Memphis). I had a room booked at Harrah's Resort & Casino and having never been there before did not know what to expect. I arrived around midnight and was anxious to get a room to get rid of my luggage, then really wanted to grab a bite to eat because I hadn't eaten since lunch and I was starving. While I was in line at the front desk I met a fellow co-worker, whom I had never met in person yet and I introduced myself. I checked in shortly after then waited for my co-worker to get his room. They couldn't find a reservation under his name and the hotel was fully booked and no rooms were available until the next day.
The next day we had a look around and realized there was really nothing to do at this resort except gambling at the casino. There was no pool, no fitness center and it was located on 2200 acres of land in the middle of absolutely nowhere so you couldn't walk to any shopping malls or any other tourist attractions, and of course anytime you wanted to grab a bite to eat you had to take a shuttle to the casino.
All in all, a crappy place to stay. I don't want to return there, that's for sure!!!
