    Smile Any Recommendations for an A.C. Hotel/Casino?

    Hi,

    I recently moved to NJ and would like to visit Atlantic City for a weekend . Does anyone have any recommendations for a good hotel/casino? I'm sure I'll have a great time at any casino, but its always better to get a recommendation.

    Thanks.

    Well a lot of the hotels/casinos are going through major expansion right now. I'm not completely sure what they have all done yet though.

    My recommendations at this point is - Borgata - which has led the new revitalization of AC or the Tropicana (which before their amazing new expansion I would not have recommended in the past).

    The Triopicana is basically the southern most of the casinos and is on the Boardwalk (actual entrance is a block from the Boardwalk). The Borgata is on the Marina side, but there are Jittneys that will take you all over AC and is very easy to get around, the drivers are also very friendly.

    Another thing is to check out the Lighthouse, tell them that AboutNewJersey.com sent you.

    For more information on the revitalization of AC - check out my article - Rediscovering Atlantic City

    Be aware that the area is much more vibrant and exciting during the summer months - but also a lot more crowded, not to mention more expensive. Anther thing to check out, on the north end of the boardwalk is the House of Blues, this just opened, and I haven't gone there yet, but I have heard good things about it.

    When you get back, please post about your experience, I hope you have a great time.

    Oh - I wanted to also welcome you to AboutNewJersey.com's messageboard. I was going to on your restaurant review, but then to be honest, I wasn't sure if it was someone just trying to get free advertising. Anyway, welcome and I hope you will have a lot of things to contribute and share with others.

    Also, where did you move from and what do you think of NJ? I should start a "recently moved to NJ" thread. Recently Moved to NJ thread is now up.
    New Jersey is the only state honored by two resorts at Walt Disney World. The Beach Club Resort, modeled after Historic Cape May and The Boardwalk Resort, after Atlantic City. If the Jersey Shore is good enough for Walt Disney to recreate, isn't the REAL Jersey Shore even better for you and your family?

    Hi JerseyDevil,

    Thanks so much for your reply...and for all of your recommendations !

    I grew up in NY...out in Suffolk County, but moved to Portland, Oregon about six years ago. I recently moved to NJ and haven't been to that many places here yet, but so far I like it! Even though I lived in NY, I never actually "visited" NJ. I drove through the state during road trips, but that's about it!

    I am going to look into Borgata and Tropicana. Also, thanks for the tip about checking out the lighthouse (of course I will mention that I heard about it at AboutNewJersey.com) as well as mentioning The House of Blues on the boardwalk. I plan to check out your article, "Rediscovering Atlantic City" after I submit this reply. Good point about waiting until the summer to go there. Hmmm...maybe I'll wait until the spring--at least the weather will be more pleasant than it is now ! (Yes...I'm having a ball with these smilies )

    I'm really glad I found this forum! I came across it while searching for things to do in NJ. I could definitely see why you would think that my other post about 22 West in the restaurant section might have been an ad, now that I re-read my post. I figured that if I write about my positive experiences with restaurants, attractions, wineries, etc., I would get feedback on other people's positive experiences and learn about new places to visit. I love trying new restaurants (as you can tell by my screen name ). My friends and I have decided that once a month, we would get together to try out a new restaurant each time.

    Take care.

    I lived in Portland Oregon too for a short time. I lived across from the Clackamas Mall off of 205.

    Well I love helpng people get around and discover all that NJ has to offer, so if you need any ideas, just post and I will reply. Also, there are several regular members here who will help also. It's one of the purposes of this board, to help other discover NJ and to share experiences.

    Spring is still a good time, less tourist, but still things start to open up. I think the Boardwalk starts to open up in April. There is so much to do in AC - it's really improving. It's obviously not like Las Vegas yet, but if they continue to work on t like they have been, it will be just as good. I don't really want a clone of Las Vegas anyway. Atlantic Cty has so much more history than Las Vegas, and it's important I think to preserve the history and culture, while making it into a world class resort once again.

    As for the smilies, thats why I added so many. I want this to grow into a community board, with people having a good time. Smiles are part of that informal and fun part I want to encourage. BY the waay - this is my favorite smilie I think - I recenty found it on another board and needed to include it.

    That's great. You are exactly the type of person I like to see on the forums, along with the several who are already on here and are willing to share their experiences and help out people who are discovering the greatness of NJ for the first time.

    I was pretty sure by your name that you were a person who was just interested in talking about restaurants and things to do in NJ and not just someone trying to get free ad space - that's why I left your post there. I wouldn't have deleted it though without first contacting you and asking. So please, continue to post where to eat and let the people you come in contact know about the site. The more people know about AboutNewJersey.com the more we can help them. As you may have gathered, NJ is my passion and this site had it's first beginnings in Portland - you can read about it here... About this Site

    By the way - if you like good restaurants, you should try out the Liberty House in Liberty State Park - especially when it gets warmer. It has great food, although it is definetly not cheap, and has an awesome view of lower Manhattan. I can also give you restaurants in the Princeton area too.

    If you're looking for some excitement, Atlantic City is the vacation spot for you. Atlantic City, home of the famous "Boardwalk," is an invigorating vacation spot, and is a great place for gambling, shopping, dining, and nighttime entertainment. If you're feeling lucky, take a gamble at one of Atlantic City's many gambling halls. The nightlife in Atlantic City is alive and vibrant, and maybe even more exciting than during the day. There are a variety of hotels available in Atlantic City to keep you in the city gambling longer. Lodging is also available for smaller budgets. Atlantic City also offers many fine dining establishments, including Latin Cuisine, Asian fare, and popular American food.

    Besides gambling, there are other activities to keep you busy in Atlantic City. Recommended places to visit are Atlantic City Historical Museum and the Art Center on Garden Pier, the Absecon Lighthouse, and the Atlantic City Aquarium. You can also go shopping at antique shops or boutiques. And don't forget to visit the beautiful beaches in the area! To get around town, hop on the Trolley tour.
