  • All that Gambling Makes You Hungry!

    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!...

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    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.
