From the yellow bridges of Pittsburgh to the snow capped mountains of Salamanca, New York we experienced a fun winter road trip. This past weekend my boyfriend and I grabbed our favorite snacks, bundled up in our winter attire and headed out to Seneca Allegany Resort and Casino. It’s in close proximity to Pittsburgh, around a 3 hour drive! It was our first time at the resort and we were excited to see what the resort had to offer!
The friendly staff greeted us upon arrival and we made it up to our corner suite. The view was beautiful with all of the snow and we loved the luxury feel of the suite. We made our way down to the lobby and browsed through the gift shops. Fun fact: My father is Native American, so it was great to see artifacts and gifts to buy at the shop to take home to my family! I love to see parts of my heritage. We definitely didn’t leave the shops empty handed! They had everything from souvenirs of the resort, to clothing and mugs, to accessories and jewelry.
Next stop was filling our growling stomachs with food from one of the restaurants in the resort. The resort includes an array of amenities including dining, a spa and salon, and gift shops. The dining includes:
- The Western Door Steakhouse
- The Thunder Mountain Buffet
- Seneca Cafe
- Fire Lounge
- The River Bar
We were craving steak and made reservations for the Western Door Steakhouse. Our meals were delicious with Delmonico steak, filets and crab legs. We topped it off with a glass of wine and had ourselves a great date night! The Seneca Resort and Casino makes for the perfect date night or weekend trip! If you’re feeling lucky, try your hand at the casino before leaving!
The next morning we were wide eyed and ready to take on the slopes! We packed up the truck and headed to Holiday Valley Ski Resort. It was beautiful to see the snow covered mountains. In Pittsburgh we don’t have a lot of snowfall so it was so nice to see in New York. In the Winter at Holiday Valley Ski Resort you can experience skiing, snowboarding and tubing! We grabbed a coffee and food from the dining at the lodge and warmed up by the outdoor firepit before heading home to the burg! Holiday Valley is such a great place for a winter stay. Especially if you are a fan of all the winter activities.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Seneca Resort and Casino and our ski trip to Holiday Valley. It’s a great place to enjoy with a significant other for a date or make the trip with your family, there is something to do for everyone to enjoy. Be sure to add these resorts to your next travel list!
