Mohegan Sun Casino Hotel in a Nutshell

Mohegan Sun is adjacent to Connecticut's Thames River.

One of two Indian casinos in eastern Connecticut (Foxwoods is the other), Mohegan Sun has evolved since its 1996 opening from a day-tripper's destination to a complex with enough dining and activities options to keep a couple occupied for a few fun-filled days.

By the numbers: Mohegan Sun's gambling space totals 350,000 square feet and the facility encompasses 80 shops, bars, and restaurants plus a 1,200-room hotel.

Ensuring guests won't go hungry, eateries at Mohegan Sun ranges from fifties-diner Johnny Rockets to Todd English's sophisticated Tuscany. And you need not be gamblers to venture here; a spa, swimming pool, and shopping arcade provide alternate activities.

A pretty place with eye-candy décor, Mohegan Sun's visual themes riff on the natural elements and Mohegan Indian symbolism, which includes images of wolves, turtle shells, and turkey feathers. The property stimulates the senses with sound (rushing waterfalls); color; and even art. A magnificent Dale Chihuly glass sculpture is a towering centerpiece.
