The Turning Stone Casino has had little trouble drawing people to the central part of New York State since it opened under a different name in 1993. The Oneida Nation town of Verona is the more exact location for this dynamic resort and casino, and should you be planning on dropping by for some fun, the address is 5218 Patrick Road. Upon arrival, the lively gaming action might be the first thing that you choose to enjoy, though you won't want to limit your options, as there is more to do at the Turning Stone Resort and Casino than gamble.
Gambling enthusiasts who are looking for that next great vacation destination will want to add the Turning Stone Casino to their list of considerations. The action never stops at this casino. There are more than 80 table games available. These games include let it ride, roulette, craps, and blackjack, not to mention a variety of other games that might suit your fancy. Complementing the table games are 2,400 slot machines, and if you prefer poker to everything else, the state-of-the-art poker room offers a most inviting environment, not to mention plasma TVs so you can watch the big game while you play. Bingo and keno round out the gaming options at the Turning Stone Casino, and thanks to the excellent alcohol service, you should have little trouble getting drinks on the casino floor if that's part of the plan.
A number of exciting Turning Stone Casino events only help to make this resort destination a major central New York attraction. The Showroom is the venue of choice for many of the main events, the likes of which include concerts and comedy shows. There's also the Event Center, which hosts its fair share of big time Turning Stone Casino events as well. On the concert side of things, fun tribute bands often take the stage when big name artists aren't in town, and as far as the other events are concerned, you might have the chance to catch a ballet performance or something the like.
When a break from gambling is due during a visit to the Turning Stone Casino, enjoying one of the special events isn't the only option. As long as you are 21 or older, stepping inside the pulsating LAVA nightclub is among the options for things to do, though if you like things a little more subdued, you might prefer getting drinks and maybe even something to eat at one of the numerous restaurants. Italian food is on tap at the trattoria restaurant, and you can indulge in fresh seafood or juicy steaks at the traditional steakhouse. Also figuring among the dining venues is a churrascaria-style restaurant that you might expect to find in Brazil, an intimate fine dining establishment, a buffet, a convenient café, and a pastry shop. When all the other dining venues are closed, the Emerald restaurant will be open, as it offers casual fare around the clock.
The Turning Stone Resort and Casino is more than just a gambling hot spot. It also doubles as a top golf resort, and an excellent spa. Numerous golfing awards and accolades have been heaped on the resort. There are no less than three championship golf courses that are on offer at the Turning Stone Resort and Casino, and they include the Tom Fazio-designed Atunyote Golf Club course. This course plays host to PGA events, so that should give you an idea about its overall quality. A bunch of other excellent courses, some of which are found onsite and some of which are located offsite, can also be enjoyed during a stay at Turning Stone, so you won't want to leave the clubs at home if you like to play. As for the resort's spa, it offers a full range of treatments in two different locations. Should you prefer working out to indulging in massages and such, then you can head to the Tower Fitness Club instead. You can find this fitness center at The Tower, which in turn is one of five different lodging options.
