North America's largest casino is right here in New England--in Mashantucket, Connecticut, to be exact.

The Mashantucket Pequot tribe's Foxwoods Resort Casino celebrates its 19th year in 2011, offering more of the gambling action that has made it a New England and a worldwide landmark.

But Foxwoods is more than just 7,000 slot machines, hundreds of table games, Keno, Bingo, poker and horseracing. The resort complex is home to three hotels, more than 25 dining options, the 1,400-seat Fox Theatre, Club BB, a Hard Rock Cafe and the Mashantucket Pequot Museum, which is a five-minute shuttle ride away. And when the MGM Grand at Foxwoods opens in May 2008, it will bring a new, upscale and exciting hospitality and entertainment experience to what is already North America's largest gaming destination. Plus, a Foxwoods getaway puts you in the heart of southeastern Connecticut, close to dozens of other nearby restaurants, attractions and outdoor activities.
