WHAT TO DO, WHAT TO DO?

So what do you do when you have all the time in the world to get to Visalia, CA and you come upon a Casino? You don't have to twist our arms, or ask us twice, we made the decision to stop and play awhile. For the truck drivers that read this blog, and get the chance to travel Interstate 5 in Corning, CA, check out the Rolling Hills Casino. There is a large lot for truck parking, a travel clubhouse where there are laundry facilities, showers, and a lounge. We opted to get a room at the Ramada Inn, parked no more than 30 yards from the front door, and had an easy little walk to the casino.

Inside the casino they have two separate sections, a smoking, and a non smoking gambling area, which our lungs were very thankful for. Another great feature is that they have self serve coffee and soda machines. No more waiting for a hostess to come by, take your order and wait for a tiny little glass of soda. They also had a small deli where you could get some pretty healthy sandwiches with fruit.

We had a bite to eat, gambled a little, and then decided to stretch out and enjoy the room and the king size bed. In the morning, after enjoying the large bathroom area, we were able to use our voucher we received at check in at the hotel for a free breakfast in the restaurant in the Casino. I have to say, it was one of the best breakfasts we have had in awhile.

Our stomachs were full, so we decided to try and give away $10.00, but the casino would have nothing to do with taking our money, as we managed to walk away with an extra $50.00 in our pockets. Both Craig and I give this place two thumbs up and will look forward to making it a stop in our future travels. So if you are ever in the area, and are wondering what to do, stop by the Rolling Hills Casino in Corning, CA. (This message brought to you by The Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians)
