Best things to do in Atlantic City

“The Tropicana is located on the Atlantic City boardwalk. It features the "Quarter" promenade where you can find some great restaurants and shopping. If you're looking for some fun at night, check out Boogie Nights - a 70's style nightclub, complete with a disco ball and light-up dance floor, just like in Saturday Night Fever! ”
