Boston to Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun - which is closer, better?

Jump to last reply

Hi, I'm interested in making a day trip to either Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun from Boston. I would have gone to Foxwoods so that my girlfriend could enjoy the spa, but the spa is 1) quite expensive and 2) totally booked except for a few undesireable times. Thus, we're open to going to either casino. To help me make my decision, I'd like to know a few things:

* Which casino is closer to Boston, and which route should I take to get there?

* Which casino has the better sports book?

* Which casino has the better activities for the non-gambler (my girlfriend), who will likely get sick of watching me gamble after about 1 hour? Arcades, movies, shopping are all attractive options.

* Which casino offers more favorable blackjack tables? Lower minimum bets (I prefer low stakes $5/10 BJ tables, and typically don't like to play $25 hands)

* Which casino has the best slots?

* Which casino has a great romantic restaurant in the $20-25 entre range that we can enjoy, that takes reservations?

Anything else to help me make my decision would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!
