When you’re looking for a relaxing getaway that combines the beauty of nature and plenty of sparkling water with indoor entertainment and games, you’re in luck with the BlueWater Resort & Casino in Parker, AZ. Whether you enjoy swimming and tubing or playing slots and golfing, there’s something for everyone here. Check out these six things to do on a weekend spent at the BlueWater Resort and Casino.
Got the itch to hit the links? Go golfing at BlueWater’s 18-hole Emerald Canyon Golf Course. As a guest of the resort, you will get preferred tee times along with your scenic room overlooking the Colorado River and the majestic mountains in the background. This course is known as the “Jewel of the Desert,” and features a driving range, golf pro lessons, putting and practice greens, a full-service pro shop and a snack bar.
If you’re looking for a little water adventure, try wakeboarding. At BlueWater’s Wakeboard Island, all skill levels can participate in marina wakeboarding thanks to a safe two-tower cable pulley featuring plenty of jumps, rails and open sections. You don’t need a boat and you don’t need to know how to wakeboard, so if you’ve always wanted to try it, now’s your chance!
Looking to beat the heat but stay out of the sun? Enjoy the comfort of the indoor pools. Not only can you splash and soak in the resort’s three indoor pools, you can also enjoy the two-story water slide and 15-foot waterfall, with everything spread out over four levels. The resort’s majestic atrium provides the backdrop for these amenities, which also include a relaxing spa and hot tub.
If you’re planning on staying at the resort in June, you can get in on the Parker Tube Float put on by the Parker Area Chamber of Commerce every summer. Each year revelers relax in tubes while floating seven miles down the Colorado River, with the route beginning at La Paz County Park and finishing at the beach at BlueWater Resort & Casino. The proceeds from this annual fundraiser benefit local businesses, but it’s also a fun time for kids and adults to look forward to. It’s a popular event, so if you’d like to attend the event next year it’s a good idea to book your stay early.
Try your luck at gambling. There are plenty of casino amenities to enjoy, such as a poker room, slots, Bingo, table games and high-limit gambling. Are you a frequent visitor? Get the THEclub Players Card when you play anything from slots and Blackjack to Poker and Bingo to earn valuable points. Who knows? You may get lucky. It’s happened before. In fact, BlueWater recently awarded its biggest jackpot ever—$1.7 million.
In the evening, after the sun has set, you can take in a concert or show. There’s always someone performing at the BlueWater, from magicians and comedians to bands and singers. Before the show, enjoy Happy Hour at Dig Bar & Lounge at The Atrium Bar or the River’s Edge Cantina.
There’s so much to do at BlueWater Resort & Casino, you could easily spend a weekend or more here soaking up the sun, taking in a round of golf, checking out a show or trying your hand at Blackjack. Bring the kids or come with friends. You’ll never run out of things to do.
