Atlantic City

The skyline of Atlantic City has changed dramatically over the last 30 years. Many elegant old hotels have been replaced by modern, high gloss and glitter hotel/casinos.
The once famous "Boardwalk of Atlantic City" still exists, but many areas are so built up with man-made sand dunes to protect the casinos that you cannot even see the Atlantic Ocean as you stroll many parts of the "boards".
While I do not like the casino gaming scene, there are always great concerts going on at the theaters of the casinos with top national and international stars performing there.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A lot of activity in a relatively small area. It can be a fun place.
  • Cons:Some activity you may not want to be a part of.
  • In a nutshell:AC is a must see...kind of where "Las Vegas meets the Atlantic Ocean"

    Thanks for the birthday wish, neighbor. Take me to Cape May for any shore vacation. Enjoyed the birds and butterflies migrating in the fall.

    That's really funny about the Jersey Drivers tip. I'd always heard it, but usually from those not LIVING IN Jersey. :-p

    Love this area of New Jersey. Mr. fernbean pics are easy to obtain. Just find a subject or state in Google and drag pic to desktop and upload while editing.

    Very interesting and useful tips. Karen and I love lighthouses and have talked of seeing those in New Jersey some day.
