Cold weather blues back again? A quick getaway to Mount Airy Casino Resort in the Poconos is just what you need.
Below you will find my seven reasons why you must visit Mount Airy Casino Resort in the Poconos. They are all bolded and are reasons that I found this trip to be a wonderful getaway.
A few weeks ago, I spent a much needed weekend away and was pleasantly surprised at all levels from lodging, dining spa and the pool. I had not been to Mount Airy since the late 90s. Since then, a new lodge has brought the name to a whole new level. About an hour and a half from NYC, Mount Airy Casino Resort was an easy drive up 80 to a weekend getaway.
The Mount Airy Casino Resort hotel room brought an attractive and comfortable respite. If you feel like eating in, a quick call for room service offers a great variety to suit your palate.
Or, you can head out to the second floor for a variety of culinary treats. While walking on the second floor casino level, slots and other games of chance await you. On the perimeter of the casino area, you can find the restaurant that is right for you.
Our first stop was Guy Fieri’s Mt. Pocono Kitchen. As you enter, you quickly feel at home in the friendly atmosphere. The restaurant has its own smoker and the chicken was just perfect.
This NYC girl ordered the Bacon Mac n’ Cheeseburger since it was the winner of the NYC Wine & Food Festival Burger Bash. While on vacation, I had to try the Coco Loco. Everything about it sounded wonderful!
While snowflakes swirled around outside and the arborvitaes were swaying in the blustery wind, we took a dip in the pool.
The Get Wet pool area gave the feeling of being in the tropics. I enjoyed feeling like I was truly away in this trendy pool and lounge.
See what I mean? The style and warmth of the pool area takes you away so that you can forget about the cold outside and enjoy the warm fun inside!
Another must do while at Mount Airy Casino Resort is to visit the Spa at Mount Airy.
Escape to a world of complete serenity and enjoy the services offered. I chose to eradicate my aches with a pampering massage. It is a full service salon too so you can also enjoy typical services such as mani/pedis and blowouts too.
Mount Airy Casino Resort is also home to fine Italian dining at Bistecca by Il Mulino. Impeccable service, ambiance and varied menu selections make this dining experience one of a kind. Our wait staff attended to our every food desire. Everything was divine.
A word to the wise – save room for dessert! You must try the zeppole!
Did you know that Gypsies Lounge at Mount Airy offers great entertainment from live music to comedians. Such a great lineup! I got to relive my college days and was lucky enough to see the Gin Blossoms. Yes, Jealousy!
After the concert, you can head over to the Get Wet Lounge. The pool area turns into a night club with music and dancing.
I must say that the Poconos is a great weekend getaway from NYC. I have often ventured to other areas with children but this time I took my mom. We had a great time sans children and look forward to going back again soon! I hear in the warmer weather they have one the Champion of Golf Courses that you must try.
