TRAVEL GUIDE: What to Do at Foxwoods Resort Casino – Connecticut

Hi loves, hope your week is going well so far. My family and I had a blast last weekend up in New Hampshire. Did you see the friendly goats we met over on my Instagram page? One of my instagram buddies has a few goats and now I know exactly why she is smitten with them. They are very lovable, friendly and oh so cute!

Speaking of going away, today I’m going to recap the mother daughter weekend Gabrielle and I had a weekend before last up at that was hosted by Foxwoods (the largest resort casino North America). Now I was never really one to go to a casino for fun as to me fun wasn’t loosing a ton of money lol. The one thing I learned about Foxwoods that weekend is that there is way more to do besides gamble and you really could have a little getaway there and have a ton of fun and get some relaxation.


I knew that the shopping would be good but seriously the Tanger Outlets had way more well known stores than I could of imagined. Both Gabbie and I got so much shopping for Christmas done it was nice to do it there as most stores were 50 % off. If that’s not a deal I don’t know what is. My favorite stores like Loft, Lucky, Nine West, and Calvin Klein just to name a few were must have visits for me. The Tanger Outlets at Foxwoods actually boasts more than 80 retail outlet stores featuring premium brands with major deals that include not only the few I mentioned but also Eagle Outfitters, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Brooks Brothers, Coach, Gap, H&M, J. Crew, Michael Kors, Nike, Skechers, Steve Madden, Talbots, Tommy Hilfiger and many more.

I was SUPER stoked to try Guy Fieri’s restaurant because I just love watching him on TV. (hello spiked hair). We had a ton of food there with the cocktails and dips being a fav. Even though I didn’t enjoy my favorite cheesecake from Junior’s (the strawberry) until I got home, the noodle dinner I had at Red Lantern was ummm…let’s just say perfection! You know how Chinese restaurants generally just cook the steak any ol way, not here. I knew I was in for a tender treat when they asked me what temperature I wanted my steak cooked at (the sign of a restaurant that cares about your dining experience. It was soooo good and huuuuuny, so wasn’t my Lychee cocktail (if you’ve never had a lychee based cocktail) add it to to your bucket list.

We ended our mother daughter weekend with massages. In October we both went to Mexico (one week a part) and I kid you not, as soon as the massages were over and the therapists left the room, we both said (almost simultaneously) those massages were WAY better than the ones we just had in Mexico. I’m big on massages and for me, it’s a no brainer that I will surely be back. A dip in the whirlpool and a seating in the sauna were the ideal way for us to finish up our pampering.
 Alsooo loves until December 21, (you only have a few days left) for every $100 you spend daily at the Tanger Outlets at Foxwoods, you will receive a $10 gift card to Guy Fieri’s Foxwoods Kitchen + Bar, AND one entry to win a Tanger gift card worth up to $5,000! So many exciting ways to scoop up deals this season!
I have to say, Foxwoods really impressed me. From the cleanliness and views of our room, to the wonderful shopping, I will totally be going back to Foxwoods to shop, play and stay! I found Foxwoods to be the perfect year-round destination for weekend getaways, especially around the holidays since there is something for everyone.
