A great weekend getaway destination
bad public transportation, can be congested, not much nightlife for a student town

Since I was only at the Soaring Eagle Casino on a Monday night, I don't know what special buffets may be on offer other nights of the week! I do know, however, that if I go again, it will be on a Monday night! They have the biggest sea food buffet I have ever seen in my life! I never knew there could be so many crab-legs in one place at one time!...more

Hans and I have eaten at the GREAT WALL BUFFET Chinese Restaurant on a number of occasions. This family owned and operated restaurant is a delight as the staff, consisting mostly of family members are always so welcoming and cheerful.We go for the dinner buffet, which for $7.25 is an absolute bargain. They offer over 100 items including steamed...more
Popular (and large) restaurant/brewpub just outside downtown Mt. Pleasant. Good beers and a comprehensive, competent menu. Several different seating styles to cater to the varying needs of different customers: a bar, hightops tables, deep booths. . . . Burgers, chicken, fish, salads, seafood all share room on the menu.I ate here in 1997, just...more
When Hans and I do go to Mount Pleasant, we always make sure we are there for the Monday night Seafood Extravaganza at the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in the FIREFLY BUFFET. People start lining up around 4 p.m. for the 5 p.m. opening. They have HUGE mounds of Snow Crab Legs, which it seems most people come for, huge peel and eat shrimp, salad...more
...Then there are the bars. On the south end of town, Bennegans, O'Kelly's/Wayside Central , BW3's, and the Cabin offer big crowds and good deals every day of the week. North on Mission, the Main Lounge, the Greenspot, Freddie's just off High Street all tend to be townie bars with less of an overwhelming college crowd.Downtown, The Bird has a lot...more

No matter where you are, if there's a movie theater, there's something to do. Mt. Plesant also has 2 24...more

Being an artist myself, I was really impressed with the way the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort has decorated the interior space with authentic Native Indian pieces from local artists. I was especially impressed with the art by an artist named Daniel Ramirez, who has two wonderful paintings displayed in the main lobby of the hotel.
Have a walk through the hotel and don't forget to go up the circular stairway to the second level, where even more art work is displayed. You don't have to be a guest in the hotel to look at the art work. There is also a shop in the hotel where you can purchase local hand made pieces of art made by local Native Indians.
Do NOT play craps at Soaring Eagle. Every craps player and dealer in Vegas, Detroit etc KNOWS that the dice must be lying completely flat on one side or it is a misthrow. Well, everyone but these jokers up here. They called a CRAP when the dice was at an appx 35 degree angle and rested on player's chips... Needless to say, there were SEVERAL VERY ANGRY players whom left the casino right then and there... We were 2 of them...

Mt. Pleasant may be a rural Mid-American college town, where not much seems to be happening except the casino for the big kids...but, hey all you kids over in Athens, Greece...you don't have a skateboard park like the one they have in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan!
Every town should have the open-minded creativity that enable them to create a healthy and safe environment for the kids to practice their skateboarding skills! Go For It! If I were 20 years younger, I wouldn't hesitate to try this fun-looking sport! Just don't forget to wear your protective gear:):)
Equipment: A skateboard, a helmet, knee and elbow pads, shoes and a determination to soar up the ramps.
