“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! ”

Casino
“Borgata is located on the marina side of Atlantic City. It's a beautifully designed, high end casino with, of course, high end restaurants and shops. Their nightlife scene is Premier Nightclub or Gypsy Bar, which typically has live music on the weekends. If you don't mind spending a bit of cash, Borgata is the place to go! ”

“Only about a 10 minute walk to Historic Gardners Basin. The best for Sunsets behind the amazing Marina Casino district. We love anything with the Jerk seasoning (Shrimp, Wings, Pork Chops). Fantastic outdoor seating looking over the water and marina. ”

Theme Park
“This is like wonderland for little ones. Not good for pre-teens or teens. Eaglewood Amusement Park would be better for teens. Storybook Land has a castle and some rides for smaller children. They also have a petting farm and children can feed the deer and goats. It's a bit pricey, $27 per person and not that many rides but for Christmas, it's decorated beautifully with lots of lights making it look like a magical place. It's 30 mins. away.”
