    Within the casinos are wonderful shows, you will see the billboards advertising what is currently showing, of course you may want to go on line and see for yourself so you can get show tickets before the sell out. The boardwalk is nice, right on the ocean, little shops, restaurants, lots of casinos too. Where are you staying. I have stayed at Tropicana (older clientele), Bally's (fun western theme), Borgatta at the far end (beautiful and upscale). A weekend isn't enough time to do everything available. Have fun.

    See what concerts / shows may be booked there that weekend. Sometimes if you stay at a casino and contact the concierge (or entertainment director, or member rep, or whatever the title in vogue is) he / she may be able to throw two free tix your way.

    Famous Philly cheese steak place there too. Forgot the name.

    Have fun and great luck!

    Have a great time! My husband and I went to A.C. early in April and had a terrific time. They were almost ready to open a new restaurant at the Trump Casino, if it's open you HAVE to go! It's called The Rainforest Cafe. There used to be one near me, but it closed down. They have GREAT food and the atmosphere is really cool with all kinds of animatronic jungle animals and they also have simulated thunderstorms throughout the whole place. It's super cool. The boardwalk is so nice to walk up and down in the evening.There are lots of little shops and tons of casinos of course. Good luck!

    That's where we stayed! :chuckle

    The casino was nice and the room was ok...nothing to write home about, but it wasn't expensive and all we did was sleep and shower in there anyhow. You spend most of your time at the casinos or on the boardwalk.
