Let's face it, a night at the casino can be a fun way to unwind and add a little excitement to your day. Here in Newport, we're lucky to have access to 2 of the largest casinos in the country just a short drive from town. Foxwoods Casino and Mohegan Sun Casino are about an hour away, about 15 minutes across the Rhode Island border into Connecticut. They are both a bit isolated, but each can be a fun day trip away during your visit to Newport. Both casinos operate 24 hours a day, so head on over whenever the mood strikes you, even if that's at 4am! About a 40 minutes' drive north to Lincoln RI brings you to Twin River Casino, which offers a large selection of both video slots as well as table games, restaurants and live entertainment. Lastly, a 20-minute drive up Route 24 brings you to Tiverton Hotel and Casino, the closest casino to Newport. It features multiple restaurants and a hotel if you want to spend a night or two! This casino/hotel is new to the area, and has been open for about a year now.
Foxwoods Resort & Casino
Ledyard, CT

One of the northeast's most visited casinos- and for good reason. Foxwoods resort & casino is one of the largest casinos in the western hemisphere, just a short 50-minute ride from Newport along RI's scenic Route 1. Inside, you'll find everything you'd see in a Las Vegas casino, including slots, tables, high-stakes bingo, and shopping/dining.

Mohegan Sun Casino & Hotel
1 Mohegan Sun Boulevard
Uncasville, CT (888)226-7711

Just a 55-minute ride from Newport, this casino is one of the newest native Indian-run casinos in the area. Constantly expanding, this casino boasts all the gaming that any other Reno or Vegas strip casino has but is located in the heart of the Indian's reservation amongst native pine and oak trees. A spectacular sight to see, and a great place to spend the evening!

Lincoln, RI (877)82-RIVER

Twin River is the former Lincoln Park, reincarnated with millions of dollars in renovations. Inside you'll find slots, table games, live music and great dining options.
