If you’re looking to hit it big, look no further than Atlantic City. While we can’t guarantee any jackpots in the gaming halls, you’re sure to find a resort lifestyle like none other. This seaside city on the coast of southern New Jersey is just a short trip from Philadelphia and New York. It’s no surprise that it was created as a summer retreat for city folk, complete with relaxing spas, broad beaches, and upscale entertainment.

Once you’re settled into your luxurious beachfront resort or boutique digs near the boardwalk, the discussion is sure to begin: what to do in Atlantic City? For a taste of AC’s old-school charm, take a stroll on its wooden boardwalk with some saltwater taffy in hand. The shopping, dining, and gaming on this strip are the envy of beach towns everywhere, and the people-watching is excellent, too.

Beach bums, we know you’re out there, and you’re ready to make a splash. Atlantic City is serious about water sports, from fishing and parasailing to surfing—yes, AC is home to some killer wave breaks. At sunset, a romantic walk along the shore is straight out of the pages of a travel brochure.

In the winter, there are fewer crowds and just as much excitement. You’ll have plenty of space to get a little weird, and you’ll be in good company at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! While away an afternoon in the company of mermaid “skulls” and George Washington’s hair, then head back to your hotel and style up your own hair—it’s time to dance the night away under the disco lights.

While some people might call it “Vegas’s little sister,” you’ll soon see AC is in a class all its own. Our great deals on Atlantic City vacation packages are in a class all their own, too. Let us show you around.
