To get to Foxwoods we head south on RT 34 from Derby, but ran into some heavy duty rush hour traffic. So we exited and drove some back roads and jumped on I95 heading east.
When you get near New London. Interstate 395 and Interstate 95 splits, and you have to stay in the left lane to get on Interstate 395 to go to Foxwoods.
The short 7 mile drive from Interstate 395 is very scenic, with several small towns. Once you're in the general direction of Foxwoods, it's not hard to find at all. Just follow all the other cars and buses heading to Foxwoods.
It didn't take long to spot Foxwoods. Here's the first sighting of that unique structure sitting out in the foothills. It does sort of stand out. I mean, there is really nothing else around for miles.
But this one picture does not do it justice. As you can see in the picture below, the whole building is intricately detailed.
Foxwoods is truly unique, sitting out in the middle of the green rolling hills of Connecticut. This is just a small portion of the building. A very popular place to go for New Year's Eve too. Also see Mohegan Sun Pictures
