I am new to the Trip Advisor Forums, so bear with me. My sister and her husband are visiting from Florida in a few weeks, and we wanted to visit Mohegan Sun, since we have never been there. I already got tickets to one of the shows for July 2. We thought of taking the scenic route via Westerly, RI(not really out of our way). Problem is: with it being 4th of July weekend, I am not finding hotels online that look too promising. How far away are Mystic, and Norwich/New London?? I don't want to be driving too far (more than 15-20 min). at nite. Any suggestions?? Appreciate it.
