Ontario Summer Fun Newsletter – Things to do in Ontario

Summer Fun Guide sfg_header_rev.jpg

What are YOU going to do this weekend?            April 5, 2012
It's a Sure Bet!

Casinos have been front and centre in Ontario papers these days, and may have opened your eyes to casinos in the province that you weren’t aware of before. Some people like Vegas or Atlantic City, but we’ve got great casino fun much closer to home.

With over 25,000 square feet of gaming, and a gorgeous backdrop of Scugog Island, the action of the casino is a striking contrast to the scenery around it.  Play the games, watch the people, and when you have worked up an appetite, check out the award-winning all-you-can eat buffet.  Less than an hour’s drive from Toronto.

Just minutes from the U.S. border, at the eastern tip of Lake Superior, this is an exciting trip for northern adventurers. Over 450 slot machines and lots of table games. Have you ever watched football on a 168-inch TV? You can here! With so much to explore, it's worth the trip to OLG Casino Sault Ste. Marie.

Whether you choose to play the slots, take in a show (from Jerry Lewis to The Who this month alone) or treat yourself to an overnight getaway, you are sure to enjoy all the world class action Casino Rama has to offer.

Don’t have time to fly to Vegas?  We’re lucky to have a taste of Vegas a lot closer to home. Caesars Windsor’s 5000 seat Colosseum, the largest of its kind within all of the Caesars properties, lets you get up close and personal to acts like Frank Sinatra Jr., Elvis Costello and Kevin Costner & Modern West.

Whether you are looking for exciting games, great food or sensational shows, Ontario casinos are a fun way to usher in the Spring. To find out more about your local casinos, visit our Gaming & Racing section.
