Atlantic City, a place I'd never journeyed to but for some reason had been strangely drawn to for the last couple of months. So I went! And it was awesome. I wasn't quite sure what to expect out of AC, I mean, I knew it was a casino kind of town but beyond that... no clue. The drive in began the adventure as the city seemed mystical in a way. You're surrounded by fields and country side in New Jersey, thinking you still must be pretty far away from this bustling casino city but out of nowhere, BAM, you see glimmers of the high-rise casino resorts, sparkling ocean waters, exciting billboards proclaiming the biggest shows, concerts, clubs, death-defying acts, etc... and realize you're there!
The place had a really cool, laid-back vibe and
for the northeast and all the typical hustle and bustle, that's pretty rare. The beach was perfect - clean, soft white sand, definitely not over crowded (one of my least fav things about beach time is feeling like you're sitting on top of one another!!), water was warm and plenty of magical people-watching to be done :)
The best part of the AC adventure was exploring the various casinos and walking along the boardwalk. The boardwalk boasted skee ball, psychics, fabulous restaurants, fun outdoor bars and of course t-shirt shops and I of course, tried them all. As for the casinos, well, my skills there are limited to slot machines lol but I did win!
Overall, AC would def return to AC... still much more to see and plenty of casino resorts to try.
