Mississippi is becoming well-known for its casinos in Tunica County and on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, where they are required by law to be on or near water. One of the best places to visit, though, is the Pearl River Resort located on the reservation of the Choctaw Indian Nation located just outside of Philadelphia, Mississippi.
Located off Highway 16 in Neshoba County, Mississippi, the Pearl River Resort is more than just a casino. The resort is the home of Dancing Rabbit Golf Course, a renowned course designed by Tom Fazio and Jerry Pate, and has been listed by Golf Digest in “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses.” Recently, the Hilton Garden Inn was built next door to the golf course featuring 140 rooms with all the modern amenities. This hotel is great for those interested in getting up and out early onto the links, while still in close proximity to the casinos and other attractions located at Pearl River Resort.
Pearl River Resort hosts two casinos, the Golden Moon Casino and Silver Star Casino. The two casinos are connected with an enclosed walkway over Highway 16 allowing the patrons to travel from one casino to the other in comfort. There are even moving sidewalks for convenience.
If gambling is your past-time, between the two casinos there are 170,000 square feet of casino games, consisting of over 5,000 various slot machines and table games such as Blackjack, Three-Card Poker, Baccarat, roulette, and craps. There are also high-limit rooms. Although, going to casinos is not everyone’s cup of tea which is why you may find that there are online poker portals such as Judi online terpercaya that are really popular among poker players.
The Golden Moon Hotel is a 28-story awesome view upon first sight. Located in the valley below, as you top the hill from either direction, you notice the huge, glowing golden ball sitting atop the angular building with the 500 room Silver Star Hotel directly across the highway. Both hotels have first-class accommodations with full amenities for comfort. The Golden Moon has an adjacent indoor and outdoor pool, while Silver Star has a floral design outdoor pool.
Both casinos/hotels contain a total of eleven restaurants for a variety of dining pleasure. Two spacious buffets, The Spectrum, and The Chef’s Pavilion, as well as deli dining for that quick burger, or the Bistro and Villa for casual dining open 24 hours. If you’re in the mood for a more upscale dinner with a casual atmosphere, I would recommend the Eclipse Grill or the Rib Joint. And, of course, there is The Steakhouse or Milo’s for a much more romantic or special occasion dinner.
One truly unique and enlightened idea Pearl River Resorts had was to create a family-friendly environment where children never have to travel on the gaming floor. All restaurants and pool areas are located around an outer walkway. For parents wishing to travel with their children, it is a very attractive feature.
Pearl River Resort also houses an exciting water park adventure for the whole family, Geyser Falls, which operates from May 30 through August 1. It is located a short distance from the Hilton Garden Inn, Golden Moon, and Silver Star Hotels. Geyser Falls is loaded with several exciting water slides, a wave pool, several water spots designed for little ones, and a floating river. There are beaches and palms trees and a host of refreshment areas. Ticket prices run about $35.00 for entrance to all activities. Our family really enjoyed the variety of water activities, and especially the slides which were some of the newest and most exciting.
Pearl River Resorts is located approximately five miles from Philadelphia, Mississippi, where the week-long Neshoba County Fair is held each year in August. Philadelphia is a great town to visit and shop, and especially visit the Williams Brothers Store, which is a favorite of young and old.
