Casino Teepee of Light

Minnesota's first casino and the largest Indian casino. Lights at night form a teepee in sky, so bright they were told to dim them by the FAA because planes thought they were runway lights 1,000 miles away.

[Troy Ziesmer, 11/14/2010]

The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community opened the casino in 1992.
