Uncasville Things to Do

  • Mohegan Sun

    Mohegan Sun has plenty of gaming, shoping, dining, entertainment and fun for just about any one. I like the atmosphere and layout better than Foxwoods. The shops are considerably nicer than Foxwoods and they have a nicer selection of bars, lounges and restaurants. The different casinos have their own theme and decor which makes it fun to walk...

  • If You're in the Mood for Doughnuts

    When I think Casino; the word doughnut does not come to mind but apparently others find it appealing. I'm not a big doughnut fan so I haven't had the experience of this place.

  • Driving from NYC

    We always drive to Mohegan Sun, it is the easiest and most convenient way for us to get there, which usually will take us anywhere from 2-3 hours, depending on the traffic and time of day.

Uncasville Shopping

  • One of my Favorite Shops

    I'm a big fan of Tommy Bahama clothing. Their clothing is perfect resort wear/summer wear. I like Tommy Bahama shirts for their tropical look and their good quality fabrics.

Uncasville Warnings and Dangers

  • Pick Pockets

    I am always aware of my surrounding and watch my wallet. Our most recet trip to the casino a woman bumped into me and actually tried to pick my pocket. I pushed her back and kept going with my wallet still secure in my pocket. Casinos might seem like fun places but they can attract a bad element looking to make a quick buck at your expense.

  • Gasing up at Mohegan Sun

    Watch out for those gas prices at the Casino Gas Station. I would recommend that if you can wait, don't gas up here. I've noticed on many occassions that the prices here are always about .40-.80 more than at any other station in the area. Years ago, this is where you came for cheap gas, now it's the pricest around. On our most recent trip we were...

    more
  • Watch out for those ATM fees

    At Mohegan Sun (all casinos actually) you will find plenty of ATM machines. The fee that the ATM's charge are outrageous and I would recommend that you reframe from withdrawing money unless it is an absolute must. I notice the fees are as high as $3.50 per withdrawal, so if you decide you have to withdraw money, try to withdraw the amount you will...

    Make sure to bring a photo identification such as a driver's license or passport to prove you are over 21 years of age. It is often requested when you order alcohol and when entering the gambling floors.My wife has been approched numerous times by security and asked for I.D. It's their job, so have your I.D. handy.

    A small overnight bag or a rollaboard. I like to keep it simple with jeans and a nice shirt or buttondown. Liz normally wears a dress with flats or a pair of heels.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For the most part the bars and longes in Mohegan Sun have TV's. There has always been a game on for me to watch while enjoying a drink with Liz. The bars are normally nice enough to change the channel to a specific event upon your request.

If you happen to park away from the casino there are shuttle buses that pick you up and drop you off at the nearest...
