"Gambling center in the East Coast" Atlantic City by stamporama

Atlantic City Travel Guide: 505 reviews and 1,033 photos

Many do not know that there are cities outside Nevada where gambling is legal. One of them is Atlantic City is New Jersey. While not as big and fabulous as Las Vegas, AC is a seaside haven that gives visitors a cool breeze from the ocean that you can't get anywhere in Nevada.

If Las Vegas has the Strip, AC has the Boardwalk. Its a wide wooden plankway lined on one side by a false-front facade in some areas as well as hotels, casinos, restos and souvenir shops. The Boardwalk is quite long so should you get tired, you could ride on those rolling chairs pushed by guys for a fee (a dollar per block).

On the opposite side is the beach where one could either swim or just walk along with your bare feet. So make sure not to litter as the sign says.
