Day Trip to Mohegan Sun

We treated my MIL to a trip down to Connecticut so the Mohegan Sun Casino.  I'd been wanting to see it too and check out the buffet.  It's about a 2 hour ride from our house to Uncasville.  CT was one of the first states to allow Native Americans to have casinos on their reservations.

 That's the hotel.

I was surprised I didn't get in trouble for taking pictures inside because you aren't allowed to take pics in casinos.  However, I only shot pics outside of the gaming area and no one bugged me.  I know that the floor is under constant surveillance and I'm glad they cut me a break, esp. since I didn't once attempt a pic of the slot machines, which was hard to do because they are so sparkly and colourful.

 Northeast native themed art throughout the building.  It's beautiful. 

Shells and beach glass embedded into the floors.

Cool light fixtures at Seasons Buffet.  The food was amazing and there was a huge selection.  I only had the tiniest portions of things cause there was so much to try! 

This was prettier in person.  This hanging in the Swarovski crystal store and was very colourful.

 Full disclosure:  What I really wanted to see at Mohegan was this incredible Chihuly sculpture. 

I couldn't get enough of this.  

Also waterfalls.  This is in the two story shopping mall part.  The stores are just a bit too spendy for me!

Another cool ceiling

Alas, Lady Luck didn't smile upon us, but we had a great time playing the slots and chowing down at the buffet, and making memories!


  1. What an amazing place. How could you not take pics?? The art is outta' this world. Lucky you!

    1. It was a lot of fun and my MIL was so happy to get a chance to go!

  2. How fun! Oh Chihuly glass works - you had me captivated. I could stand in awe forever. Waterfalls and native art too - nifty place. Glad you had a good time - food and slots - what the heck!

    1. I'm not really much of a gambler....I can't sit and do it for hours so that's why I went to explore a bit.
