Snippets From Turning Stone Resort and Casino

Because I’m totally baller (according to my somewhat facetious brother) I was offered two free nights at the hotel at Turning Stone in Verona, New York. I had no plans for my birthday and don’t know anyone around here (still!) so it seemed like the perfect week to cash in those free nights. My brother managed to get a couple days off and we went to live it up for a couple of days. I drove two long days round trip (9hours one way, 12 on the return- DC/Northern VA traffic is the worst) and it didn’t even seem like too long of a drive for such a short trip because we packed so much in that it felt like 4 days, not 2. I barely slept but it’s not like I have to go straight back to work after vacations so it doesn’t matter, though the drive home was rough.

I thought id share five pictures that captured the experience well, though there may be another one coming with food, which was delicious.

  1. It sounds SUPER fun!! Although driving can wear you out and make you want to just jump out of the car lol while you’re on the interstate. Happy late birthday!!! you can always come hang out with me in Utah if you don’t know anyone there 😀

    1. Thanks for the birthday wishes! It really was worth the drive, but I must be crazy because in two more days I’m jumping in the car again to drive to Michigan… Utah is a place i do plan to visit at some point, it looks so beautiful and different from the scenery I’m used to, you post some tempting pictures!
