The lodge is in an old abandoned rebel alliance base called Echo Base. The base has been redone and features world class amenities including a state of the art medical facility in case of a skiing injury or a Wampa attack.

If you’re interested in some galactic history, there are plenty of alliance and empire artifacts left behind from the Battle of Hoth including a downed AT-AT. Hoth isn’t for everyone. The temperatures are bitterly cold and the Tauntauns smell horrible, but if you’re up to it, Hoth can be the greatest adventure of your life.

Mos Eisley

The city of Mos Eisley is located on the desert planet of Tatooine. Warning: it’s extremely hot (it has two suns). It’s also not somewhere you want to take your family. You go to Mos Eisley to get into some shit. It’s city slogan is “a wretched hive of scum and villainy”.

The place is full of smugglers, dive bars, criminals, and casinos. If that’s your thing then by all means come to Mos Eisley. The premier casino is actually located outside of town in the dune sea area. Jabba’s Palace, once the home of the infamous crime lord Jabba the Hutt, is the best place to spend a couple days losing yourself (and your money).

Gambling is not only legal on Tatooine, it’s encouraged. While there make sure to catch a pod race and put a bunch of money on who you think will win. You’re on vacation. You shouldn’t be worrying about money, just about having a good time.
