I love going to a casino. I even have a favorite slot machine I look for where ever I go. I would tell you but I am also very superstitious and don't want to jinx my luck.

Going to the casino for a day can be fun and the truth is we have quite a few casinos that you can make day trips out of right here in New York. Some are in New York itself while others are close by in Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

I find that most of my trips to a casino involve food, drink, and gaming. The typical day for my crew is late lunch some day drinking and it is off to the floor to hunt down our favorite games in hopes of coming home winners.

The truth is many of the casinos that are close to the Hudson Valley are also great places to stay for a long weekend. Some have golf courses, while others offer spa treatments and big-name entertainment. Some of the casinos on this list offer all of that plus shopping.
