Part of New England's popular Mystic Region, the Mystic – New London area offers the best of both worlds: quiet shorelines to glitzy gaming centers. Perched along Connecticut's easternmost shoreline, Mystic charms with its 19th century shipbuilding and sailing culture, as well as its family- and group-friendly attractions. Set west of Mystic, New London at the mouth of the Thames River features historic attractions, a welcoming waterfront, and unique downtown shopping and dining. Both destinations put meeting participants within easy reach of the nearby Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket and Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, which serve as the Mystic Region's top entertainment and event venues.
Situated in tranquil forestland, Foxwoods Resort Casino is the largest resort casino in North America. Spanning a whopping nine million square feet, Foxwoods features 2,230 total guest rooms, exciting gaming in seven casinos, award-winning golf, fine dining and shopping, entertainment, and recreation. Meeting participants can gather at Foxwoods’ more than 200,000 square feet of event space, including four ballrooms, a variety of meeting rooms, hospitality suites, 1,400-seat Fox Theater, 4,000-seat Grand Theater, and verdant outdoor spaces.
