Palmer, Massachusetts is not exactly known for being the picture-perfect travel destination, but as it turns out, this small town may have something worth visiting in the future. As some may remember, Mohegan Sun was looking to build a casino in Palmer back in 2013, but the town voted against it. The same plot of land that the rejected casino was going to be built on, located right off the Exit 8 of the Massachusetts Turnpike, is planned to be the site for another potential resort.

Nicknamed “Project Palmer”, the proposal is was announced by an infrastructure company called The Northeast Group on March 28 and is still in the very early stages of development. As it stands, the resort will consist of a water park, hotel, sports facility, and hiking trails. It could potentially employ up to 1,000 people and will be one-of-a-kind in New England. It will be focused more on family events, rather than an adult-only casino, in order to attract more visitors and be more accepted by Palmer residents.

Project Palmer has an official website, https://projectpalmer.com/, where there are more statistics and a video, which gives a visual on where the resort will be located and how massive it will actually be.

It is expected that The Northeast Group will release another, more concrete statement within the next few months.
