An Atlantic City travel guide – lively casinos, boardwalk strolls and relaxing days on the beach
An Atlantic City vacation buzzes with sights and sounds spilling out of the casinos. Live music fans should head to the beachy vibe at Resorts to catch top rock, country and pop headliners. At Bally’s Bikini Beach Bar, deejays and live bands keep the Boardwalk hopping. Harrah’s creates a bustling scene with its myriad alfresco bars and hip clubs that rock all night long.
On the beach
Take a break from the casinos, rent a beach chair and settle back for some sun and surf. Rent a body board to catch the gentle curls at Delaware Beach. Ask your Atlantic City hotel concierge for a volleyball net and get a game going. If it’s raining, head for the touch-tanks at the Atlantic City Aquarium or take a tour of Lucy the Elephant, a huge building that looks like, you guessed it, an elephant.
Indulge your body with soothing hot-stone therapy at Spa at the Taj or delight your senses with an enticing body wrap at bluemercury at Tropicana Hotel & Casino. Splurge on a stylish oceanfront suite or treat yourself to a cabana for private beachside pampering. For the ultimate experience, book an Atlantic City hotel and order a candlelit dinner from room service.
Hit the slot machines and poker tables at Donald Trump’s Taj Mahal, with its fun and funky Egyptian vibe. In the buzzing carnival environs of Caesars, the blackjack tables are always hot. Bally’s keeps it festive with lively gaming tables and lots of dollar slot machines, while Harrah’s caters to a younger rock ’n’ roll set.
