The Mount Airy Casino Resort in Mount Pocono, Pennsylvania with its Poconos theme feature a lot more to do than just gambling. For those visiting the warm months you can take advantage of the golfing, any of the 7 state parks, fishing, lakes and rivers which are regularly stocked for fishing and more. It’s a true outdoors location. In the winter time you can take advantage of the great skiing that is available, weather permitting. With all of these activities, there’s little reason you wouldn’t want to visit the Mount Airy Casino Resort even if you’re not a gambler.
The original lodge came into being in 1898 and offered 8 rooms available to guests but it was reconstructed in the 50′s and turned into the Pocono Mountains largest resort. When it was purchased by the current owners in 2004, the entire old structure was removed and a new $412 million resort was built in its place. It features 437,262 square feet of gaming floor.
There are 5 restaurants of notability there and they include:
Le Sorelle Cucina
The menus available between all of the restaurants include a wide selection of different choices when you’re hungry and range from casual to fine dining. Let’s not forget the nightlife as well for those who wish to take part in that where you’ll find live entertainment, Red’s Bar and the Glass Bar among other things.
You can see top names in entertainment such as The Village People, Roy Clark, the 5th Dimension and many others as well as a huge selection of local entertainment.
For those who wish to maintain their workout and fitness regimen while they are on vacation, you’ll find that the resorts fitness center is open 24/7/365 and is made available to all guests at no additional charge. That’s huge in a time where we see many venues charging for every little thing that they make available.
For those who want to be pampered even if only for a little while, you’ll find that you can go to the salon and spa for some relaxing indulgence in yourself for a change or you can check out the sauna and take a nice steam to get rid of the impurities in the pores.
The casino floor features an astounding 2,500 slot games as well as electronic table games for those who wish to try their luck at gaming. Slot denominations range from penny slots to $100 slot machines in the high rollers area of the casino.
With so much to do there, you’re doing yourself a grave injustice if you pass up the chance to visit the Pocono Mountains and stay at this great resort. It’s got everything you need to have a great, relaxing time and then some.
