Yes New York, it’s that time of year where people start planning for the next holiday, Labor Day. Every year you do the same humdrum thing, a family BBQ or a day at the beach. Don’t get me wrong we love a good BBQ along with a nice beach day however it may be time to spice things up a bit.

Mohegan Sun is the ideal place to spend any weekend, especially Labor Day weekend. Some people fail to realize that Mohegan Sun has more to offer than just a day/night of gambling yet it is more like a resort where the whole family can have fun.
