Atlantic City, NJ
New Jersey

Even if you have not visited Atlantic City, you may be familiar with some of its street names. Known as “Monopoly City,” Atlantic City inspired the original Parker Brothers Monopoly board game. Come visit the resort city that has such famous streets as Park Place and Boardwalk.

WhatsCheaper.com encourages you to book your next trip to New Jersey’s seaside resort city. Travelers can fly into Atlantic City International Airport or Philadelphia International Airport, which is an hour away using the Atlantic City Expressway. Please book your flight using the following link (https://www.whatscheaper.com/flight.php).

The casinos are perhaps the biggest draw to Atlantic City, and Whatscheaper.com suggests you take part in this aspect of the city. The casinos are perfect for people interested in playing a round of poker, trying their luck at the slots, or watching a spectacular show. They are open for gaming all day and every day. Each of the major casinos, most of which are found off of Pacific Avenue or accessible from the Boardwalk, has a different level of hospitality and flair.

We here at Whatscheaper.com believe that any visitor to Atlantic City should stroll along the Boardwalk. The Atlantic City Boardwalk is the city’s backbone. It runs almost six miles from one end of Atlantic City to the Ventnor City/Margate City border. From the Boardwalk, you can get to the beaches, casinos, and many of Atlantic City’s attractions. There are three piers on the Boardwalk: Garden Pier, Steeplechase Pier, and Ocean Pier. Also, there are markers along the Boardwalk that provide details about Atlantic City’s history. You can take the Boardwalk Walking Tour and learn why the Boardwalk was built, about the former site of Steeplechase Pier, and about the factory where James’s salt-water taffy is made. Whatscheaper.com also recommends going to the beach and participating in beach volleyball, grilling, or one of the several water sports offered.

In addition to visiting the casinos and beach, we at Whatscheaper.com urge visitors to take advantage of Atlantic City’s shopping opportunities. Atlantic City is known for having some of the best shopping areas on the East Coast. At specialty shops along the Boardwalk, you can buy souvenirs or sample mouth-watering salt-water taffy. Two of the casinos also have shopping centers. The Quarter at Tropicana has over 30 specialty shops to give visitors a one-of-a-kind shopping experience, whereas the Pier Shops at Caesars has exclusive name-brand retail shops. For affordable name-brand items, Whatscheaper.com recommends the Atlantic City Outlets—The Walk, which has name-brand outlet stores, as well as restaurants and a nightclub.

After a day of shopping or gambling, you will want to extend the fun into the night. Most of the casino resorts have bars or lounges on their property so you will not need to go far to find one. For variety, check out the bars and clubs off of Atlantic and Pacific Avenues. Getting around Atlantic City is convenient on the jitneys—the mini-busses that provide transportation to various parts of the city.

Entertainment, shopping, gambling, attractions, beaches, and more—Atlantic City has it all. This seaside resort city on Absecon Island is a hit with business and leisure travelers. Whatscheaper.com encourages you to use the link above to book your vacation to the city that is “always turned on.”
