The holidays are here…where are you headed this year? 

If you’re looking for a holiday destination featuring  fun in the sun, activities a-plenty, world class dining, great bars, and plenty of entertainment, look no further than Sycuan Casino Resort

Located in the sunny San Diego region, our resort is a gorgeous and welcoming place to visit at any time of the year, but it’s especially wonderful during the holidays.

Read on to learn why Sycuan is the ultimate holiday destination: 

It’s Not Cold Here. 

The holidays may be merry and bright…but in a lot of places, they’re really cold, too. Don’t get us wrong, the idea of a white Christmas is nice…but sometimes you don’t want to pile on the layers! If you prefer to have winter fun in the sun, then Sycuan is the perfect holiday getaway for you. 

In the San Diego region, we’ve got perfect weather pretty much all year round. The average temperature in November is about 70 degrees, and it only dips to about 66 degree averages in December. With our reliably beautiful weather, it’s the perfect place to escape frigid weather and enjoy the sun for a while!

Relax By the Pool! 

Oh what fun it is to ride…in a tube on the lazy river! Retreat Pool & Cabanas is located on the premises of the Sycuan Casino Resort, and if we do say so ourselves, it’s the perfect spot to let the stress of the holidays float away.

No holiday stress here…only relaxation!  A full bar means it’s going to be a merry day indeed by the pool! What will you try first…our Peach Mango Iced Tea, crafted with Belvedere Peach Nectar Vodka, mango, citrus, and freshly brewed iced tea? Or our Coco Margarita, made with Mi Campo Blanco Tequila, coconut, lime, and agave nectar? We’ve got a full list of cocktails…and we also have wine, beer, and bubbly! 

Get Your Game On 

Do you love the culture of Las Vegas…but prefer a more intimate setting? Sycuan will be right up your alley.

With 2,800 slot machines plus a variety of table games, Asian games, bingo, poker, craps, and roulette, we’ve got a robust selection of all of your casino favorites, but the setting isn’t as overwhelming as Sin City. 

Sycuan offers a healthy atmosphere, too: we have the largest advanced filtration non-smoking gaming floor in the region. 

Generous casino promotions and discounts abound…so don’t miss all of the gaming action! Remember: you must be 21 years or older to enter and play in the casino.
