Travel

If you go to Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun

Note: Booking rooms directly through the casino can be very pricey (close to $500 on weekends depending on the weekend and hotel). Check discount hotel sites before making arrangements. A good alternative is to stay off-site. The Hyatt Place (Mohegan Sun) and Hilton Garden (Foxwoods) can be significantly less expensive (around $100 a night at Hilton Garden) and are a quick drive.
