At the Meadows Casino near Pittsburgh

Meadows Casino main entrance

We were at the Meadows Casino and Racetrack and had just pulled into the property. With our RV we have to be careful where we go with clearence heights keeping us from entering most parking garages as well as the and length and width of our Thor Four Winds not relly suitable for some auto parking lots. We were so surprised when a security guard indicated for us to follow him. We followed and he took us to the special area where RV’s park. It was a long way from the Casino entrance. Talking to each other as we followed the guard, we had decided that it was just too far for us to walk. After the guard stopped and indicated a very level spot for us to park he asked if we were going to spend the night.

Surprised? Well we were as we thought this Casino was only open until midnight. Maj explanined that we had decided to not stay as the walk was too far. This kind security guard said he had no intention of letting us walk! He would take us to the entrance. The security guards also drive the shuttle and all we had to do was call the front desk of the Casino and they would come get us from our RV anytime we wanted. They also took us from the Casino back to the RV.

We thought this was great as the Security Guards were patrolling the parking lots and that way they knew we were there. We did spend the night and really had fun at the casino and race track which is part of the casino. The casino is huge with tons of slots and live dealer table games. There are plenty of smoking and no smoking areas as well.

The Meadows Casino and Racetrack is on I-79 south of Pittsburgh in Washington, Pennsylvania. There is also a hotel on the property. Check out the Meadows website here. Stop here on your way to Pittsburgh. It is a great facility and very RV friendly.

An impressive view of the Casino. You can see the back stretch of the harness racing track above the right parking garage.

Mario’s Woodfired Pizza in Beaver, Pennsylvania

A delicious meal!

A delicious meal!

This past summer we were in western Pennsylvania and stopped in the town of Beaver. Here we found a delightful pizza and pasta restaurant. Mario’s Woodfired Pizza is right downtown. The day was pretty so we decided to eat at a table outside.

I had the Veal Parmesan on a bed of pasta, and Sher ordered a veggie pizza. The veal was the best I have had in a long time. The veggie pizza was huge. Both of us were stuffed after we were done.

This is a great restaurant, and we would recommend that you find it when you visit the historic town of Beaver.
