List of Things I Love in AC
If you live in New York City or Philadelphia then there is no excuse to not run off to Atlantic City for a day or a weekend. Affectionately termed “AC” by many of my Brooklyn and New Jersey friends, there is never a dull moment and there is truly something for everyone here. You don’t even have to be a hard core gambler to enjoy the hotels and casino.
I normally stay at the Tropicana Casino and Resort. I like staying in their new wing. The rooms are decorated in a calming blue and white beach theme. I enjoy the shops in “The Quarter”. For relaxation and spa time I book The Blue Mercury. Next, there is a stop for Cuban food at Cuba Libre and entertainment at The Comedy Stop.
A visit to the beach is a must. The Atlanic Ocean awaits and AC added just the right amount of pebbles to make the ocean look clear when your feet are in the water. There are beach bars that play live music and there is always a beach party vibe with loads of Jersey fist pumping involved.
I’m a shopaholic and Tanger Outlets in AC is the perfect way to satisfy my thirst. They have my favorite “go to” brands like Banana Republic, The Gap, H&M, Kenneth Cole (They sell the worlds’ comfiest shoes) and Brooks Brothers.
