Where’s the best place to start on an extraordinary stay at the 4-star hotel?

Choctaw Casino & Resort in Durant!

First of all, I think my perfect getaway started with the casino + resort being located a quick one hour drive away from my casa in Frisco, Tejas. It literally couldn’t have been easier to separate from my normal routine to experience a fun + relaxing weekend trip! The couple day break involved a spacious room with a gorgeous view of the resort pools down below + wide open spaces. Between sun//water and the coziness of a cool air-conditioned bedroom, I was able to get the best of both worlds! Did I mention that bathroom?!

If I wasn’t lounging around (taking full advantage of room service #diva), I enjoyed a little gambling downstairs. I layed down the law on a few high-risk games of…slot machines! 🎰 I’m not always the best at keeping up my poker face, but no machine stood a chance of beating me out of my hard-earned pennies. I’m pretty proud to say that I made it out of there with a few extra dollars than I went in with ($17 to be exact)! If the slot machines aren’t your thing though, try your hand at poker in the private poker room, a round (or five) of blackjack, or take a trip to the racebook area to catch live races and place your bets! 🏇 There’s a little something for everyone here honestly! 

My trip wasn’t complete without a visit to the spa for one of the best massages of my life! Their spa is nothing short of peaceful with a side of amazing. 💆‍♂️ Definitely a must-do if you ask me. To top off the massage, I got to hit up just a few of the delicious restaurants the casino has to offer its guests. The 24-carat lobster bisque took a run for my money and my tastebuds at 1832 Steakhouse. With so many different varieties of foods, everyone is bound to leave with full bellies and great memories! Including ordering Papa John’s downstairs at 12am… 🍕 Hey, the heart wants what the heart wants!

Even better, the casino hosts a number of fab performers year-round! So you’re bound to get in some fun entertainment during your retreat. The concerts are topped off by the convenience of your hotel room only being a few floors away, you’ll never lose a minute of sleep or comfort or funds on your Lyft!

There is no limit to the fun you could have here – you might have to book a second trip to finish off the rest of the experience – I know mine is already in the books!


Stay hungry chillaxin’, Dallas.
