Oh, that SUN! I think it’s safe to say that winter weather is officially over, and that means our indoor hibernation is over, too! Venturing outside has me dreaming of a mini family vacation, and as you can probably tell by my recent travel coverage, we love to stay local and enjoy all that our state of PA has to offer. Who needs to waste all that drive time, right? One place that is on our list for this spring is Sands Bethlehem Casino Resort, located in Bethlehem, PA. So much more than a casino, it’s a family-friendly destination that has just about everything you need to bust out of that winter rut.
When you hear the word “casino”, you might think of fun that strictly for the over-21 crowd, and Sands Bethlehem won’t disappoint with a world class casino that keeps the adult scene hopping.
BUT, the fun doesn’t end there. Kids can play all day in Kids’ Quest and Cyber Quest – a kid-friendly gaming zone jam-packed with the latest arcade-style games and a huge prize zone.
Family Dining at Sands Bethlehem
In addition to a bakery, deli, Asian cuisine and the Croissanterie coffee shop, Sands Bethlehem also features dining options brought to you by some very familiar faces in the legit culinary scene.
Like this guy – it’s Emeril! His distinctive culinary creations can be found at three locations, ranging from fine dining to casual fare.
- Emeril’s Chop House
- Emeril’s Fish House
- Burgers and More by Emeril
And Buddy Valastro, of TLC’s Cake Boss, has brought his restaurant to Sands Bethlehem, too. Buddy V’s Ristorante offers twists on Italian-American favorites, with family favorites like Sunday Gravy, Steak Pizzaiola and Linguine and Clams with Lobster on the menu. Obviously, you won’t want to miss dessert here. The only question is whether to order the Zeppole, Cannoli or Valastro’s famous Lobster Tail Pastry.
When it’s time to turn in for the night, Deluxe rooms and Suites are updated and modern, with loads of amenities, like free high speed WiFi, in-room dining, plush pillow-top beds and remote checkout.
