If you can’t make it down to the shore, no need to worry. Skip the traffic and find your oasis right in King of Prussia at Valley Beach Poolside Club at the Valley Forge Casino Resort for your daily dose of sand, summery drinks and shore bites.
Valley Beach’s new additions for the 2016 season include weekly outdoor yoga and free happy hour, a shore-themed food truck (The Break), expanded bar lists and service, more entertainment, poolside showers, a new towel hut, poolside bottle service and more.
Relax on oversized loungers by the pool as you work on that perfect tan, or cool down with a frozen drink under the cover of private cabanas. Challenge your friends to games on the authentic sandy beach—50 tons of sand has been trucked in to surround the 22,000 gallon pool. After a day of fun in the sun, look for things to really heat up with live entertainment, DJs, open-air dining and other surprises.
“Valley Beach is a summer-long party, but without the hassle of shore traffic,” said Chief Marketing Officer Jennifer Galle. “Enjoy the best of the beach—relaxing in the sun, drinks, live music, hot DJs, outdoor eats and more—all right here in King of Prussia.” She adds, “With the launch of The Break, we aim to raise the bar on food offerings at Valley Beach, while also continuing to elevate the guest experience. Bringing the cooking and preparation outside—rjust feet from the pool—rwe can better cater to the needs of our guests.”
The menu includes items such as jerk chicken nachos ($9), crab dip ($12), Thai chicken salad ($12), Baja fish taco ($10) and Valley Beach shrimp wrap ($12). For drinks, choose from local beers from Conshohocken Brewing Company and Victory Brewing Company, or cool down with creative tropical cocktails like the Valley Beach Bum (Stoli Strasberi, Ohranj and Blueberi Vodkas with cranberry and pineapple juices). For a real treat, try a layered frozen drink such as the Valley Vice (pina colada layered with strawberry daiquiri). There are also “adult ice pops,” too, featuring different flavors daily.
