Took my wife for a romantic getaway to Mount Airy in the Poconos. It was a great trip for both of us as we were able to gamble, enjoy some quality time as well as shop which is also tops on my wifes list.
My wife wanted to do a weekend which I was not so keen on since I am a huge football fan and wanted to watch the games on Sunday. I convinced here to go on a Monday instead. The drive from Long Island was not that bad at all, in fact it was much better than going to Atlantic City.
We were very impressed at the quality of this facility, wow. The casino was big and we never felt crowded. The only downside was that there were no table games. Rumor has it that it may happen some day but I would have liked to have seen them there now. Besides that this casino was a good one, very well done.
Not much entertainment but there is still a lot of construction going on which will bring entertainment as well. Besides, we did get out for some dinner, drinks and some quality time in a beautiful room. We have no complaints at all about the rooms right down to the cost which was not bad at all, in fact cheap hotels on Long Island cost as much.
Not sure who owns this facility but I have to commend him/them on a job well done.
Looks like Pennsylvania is now in the Casino business big time. Maybe in the future we will see more casinos in the same area. We had asked someone about going to another casino and we were told it was at least 45 minutes away, a little too far to check out.
Overall I give this place a huge thumbs up!
Oh yeah, we found the food to be good and the service excellent.
