Mohegan Sun-

They should call it: MORE-Hegan Sun Resort and Casino!

Why? Because at Mohegan Sun, you get so much more! More than just a casino, Mohegan is a full service resort which
offers headline entertainment, gourmet restaurants and a full service spa!

Located only 15-20 minutes from the famous Mystic Seaport area, Mohegan offers luxury shopping along their concourse
and a general feel which is comfortable yet mystical. The sense of American Indian culture is evident in the architecture
and in statues such as "The tree of life" and in the "planetarium."  Concepts of earth and air are captured throughout the
casino/resort. The original casino is specifically called "Casino of the earth" to represent that very element. It boasts over
6,600 slot machines, high end table games and everything in between. It was built in 1996 and the newer casinos, shops
and spa opened between 2001 and 2002.

Mohegan offers over 1200 rooms, many with glorious river views and reflections of the river off of their tall, mirrored
glass buildings. As large as Mohegan is in size now, it remains very  easy to navigate and find everything you need.

For early rising fitness buffs, you have the full size fitness center and a spectacular indoor pool with sunfilled
skylights.The Elemis Spa is 20,000 square feet and offers a full range of traditional and unique massage and beauty

For dining at Mohegan you have everything from Buffets and Margaritaville (only a few in the country), to gourmet style
dining. Try Todd English's Tuscany for a truly Northern Italian experience. I highly recommend the Chilean Sea Bass
cooked in Parchment and flavored with mediterranean spices that makes you instantly say, "Wow thats Italian!" You can
opt for the traditional Spaghetti and Meatballs, but even THAT is not traditional. The housemade all natural meatballs were
light and filling at the same time. The portions were appealing and the service was professional and what you would expect
from a high end gourmet restaurant!

For late night drinks, you must visit the Martini Bar- within which you will see stars, literally! Not from drinking too much,
but from the star designed skylight within the bar. It is great for parties and for couples alike.

Paul Anka was a sure hit as he headlined at Mohegan. Although he performed on a Sunday afternoon, it felt like a Saturday
night and Paul was just as energetic and crowd pleasing as ever before! He constantly reinvents himself while
incorporating his themes and videos of the endless artists he performed with over his extensive career. Performers such as
the late great Sammy Davis Jr,  and Frank Sinatra and so many others. He also does duets with current performers of all
types of musical genres. Jazz, Acoustic Guitar and ofcourse 50's rock and roll. Paul Anka is a gd send to music and I wish
him great, continued success long into the future. I would still throw myself at him!

Mohegan Sun Resort and Casino is strategically placed fairly midway between Boston and NYC. A short drive off of I-95,
Mohegan is a success in all that it has attempted to achieve.
Style, comfort, casino, great dining, friendly staff and beautiful rooms. It feels like you have left the ground and stepped
onto a cruise!

Bet with your head and get to "more" I mean Mohegan as soon as you can!
