If you gamble and live or visit the east coast, you may have stopped by Foxwoods casino resort in Connecticut. Without a doubt, it is one of the best casinos in the state (much better than Mohegan Sun in our opinion). That said, if you are interested in visiting Mohegan Sun, feel free to learn how far the Mohegan sun is from Foxwoods.
Besides gambling in the poker room, playing the slot machines, betting on horse races and enjoying the bingo room, there is plenty of things-to-do besides gambling at Foxwoods. Recently, they hosted The 2019 World Series Of Poker but there are still a lot of upcoming events.
