Hospitality trend reports reveal dining and shopping options are wooing attendees off the casino floor. Enter gaming properties revamping for guests who like to shop, eat and bowl. Take these three examples:

>> Turning Stone Resort Casino in upstate New York is adding a $100 million, 300,000-sq.-ft. luxury shopping center (above), which includes a six-screen movie theater and a bowling alley.

>> Boyd Gaming, which owns 22 casinos across eight states (Blue Chip Casino Hotel & Spa in Indiana, IP Casino Resort Spa in Mississippi are among them), announced plans to add 20 restaurants to its portfolio over the next few years to compete with local restaurants.

>> The $1.6 billion Wynn Everett (shown above) opening outside Boston in 2017 is slated to include 94,000 square feet of high-end retail space, a spa and eight restaurants.
