We had the absolute best weekend at Choctaw Casinos & Resort in Durant, Oklahoma celebrating the official opening of their Aqua pool for the season! With a swim-up bar, cabanas, and of course, multiple restaurants, and massive casino, the resort feels like a mini Vegas retreat! It is the perfect weekend getaway for a girls trip, bach, or birthday weekend and we're highlighting all the deets!

The AQUA pool is the place to be at Choctaw Casino & Resort in Durant and you just have to see it for yourself because you won't even believe you're in Oklahoma! Relax under the palm trees with a cocktail in hand plus the swim-up bar, hot tubs, yard games, snack bar, and bumpin' music!Want to have the ultimate experience? Reserve one of the 50 cabanas with your crew and enjoy fans, stocked fridge, tvs, lounge space, and drinks and food delivered pool side! We were blown away by their hospitality!




With endless possibilities, the massive resort in Durant is the perfect spot to escape for the weekend! Beyond the pool, treat yourself to the spa or dine at one of the 16 restaurants. including the amazing 1832 Steakhouse with table-side presentations or Guy Fieri's American Kitchen and Bar!In addition to their casino (which has more slot machines than Vegas!), there is plenty more to do from an arcade, bowling alley, movie theater, and a sports bar with floor to ceiling screens, or dance the night away to live music at the Texas-inspired bar, Gilley's!




Right down the road from the casino is the beautiful Choctaw Cultural Center! We stopped by before heading out of town and were super impressed by the architecture, exhibit, food, and interactive workshops! The exhibit dives into the history of Choctaw nation and the workshops let you experience it for yourself from pottery, beading, and basket weaving!

So make your plans to visit the most epic casino and resort just 1.5 hours north of Dallas! And GOOD LUCK!
